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.

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.

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!

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!
