Fan Comic: Two Sides of the Same Coin. by mushroomtale Fan Comic: Two Sides of the Same Coin. by mushroomtale
Based on Two Sides of the Same Coin from Centistories, a collection Merlin drabbles written by princessmelia.

The layout looks ugh on dA... I recommend seeing this on my Merlin fanart Tumblr.

:icongunrev: portfolio requirement (1 of 3): five-pager open-ended comic based on movie / TV series.

This assignment was given last year, and I thought of doing Supernatural, and then The Walking Dead... but it was hard cos I was just a regular fan, not hardly enough to make me want to make fanwork for any series.

A little over a month ago, I discovered Merlin. I wasn't an instant fan. I finished all four seasons within a week, no big, but by the end of S4... something clicked, so... have a fueled-by-feels Merlin fan comic some sample comic pages. For my studio portfolio. :) :heart:

Sorry if there are mistakes or technical inaccuracies or whatever. It was tough to pinpoint reference images when I have such a bad memory. I wish I could go to tapings and just take photos of everything on set from every angle.

So jealous of your art skills! This was so nicely put together! Did you draw them on paper first and them edit them all together? So cool! I can draw realistic too but. . . idk i'm not good at posing and stuff like this. I need a good reference picture! REALLY AWESOME! one of the best Melrin comics I've ever seen!

Beautiful work of art :)
It seems your art has that sort of calming air too it but it also feels very adventurous and somewhat serious, it makes sense and is all over just a fascinating piece. It reminds me of when i first stayted watching BBC shows like 'Merlin' and 'Doctor Who' :3 in short i really like your drawing :D

This is absolutely beautiful. It looks like an illuminated storybook from another time and I love your art style. It captures the two characters and their relationship in a moving way.

whimsycatcher Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
Wow wow wow!!! This is really such a marvel! Great lines and textures, and you have a way with expressions! I love how you've composed each montage, and it's wonderful to look through the scenes you've decided to illustrate to accompany the words. I really enjoy all these references to different episodes, and to see them as children is especially delightful! Ah, I wish one of my courses had included an assignment like this! What a fine excuse to indulge in fanart, haha. I think you handled it so perfectly. Each page stuns me with your gorgeous style!

Oh, thank you so much, my Dear! :blushes: :heart: :heart: :heart: I'm really glad you enjoyed this, and I'm giddy with happiness just reading your comment! *crushes it to my chest and treasures it forever* I really don't know what to say, except, maybe... you could still make one, even if it's not homework? If you want to, maybe? Aaah, it would be so awesome! *wink wink* :hug: :hug: :hug: :heart:
whimsycatcher Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
You're very welcome! :glomp: Well I'll definitely do some more Merlin fan art soon, but I'll probably be too lazy to do so many scenes and pages, lol. :D

LOVE!!! You did a great job of translating the characters into your normal style while keeping their likenesses. I especially love the shots with the white dragon and freya!
my one critique would be that the text is really small / hard to read. But other then that, it's perfection!
