Tales by Firelight by Dreamkeepers Tales by Firelight by Dreamkeepers
This past years Halloween special seemed fitting as a lone illustration... There's just something about a flickering campfire that renders the concerns of daily life obsolete. And the best setting for scary tales is always a place where the audience has their back to a pervasive darkness. Sometimes I dislike living in a city.

Man I love things like this!  But what's more chilling?  Bobby's story or the cold night?

So... where's the third Konkord that is always hiding when Grunn's drunk?

I'm not sure- it's possible he has a tardis.  Or he may just merge back together with one of the other two.

I was trying to illuminate them using the moonlight- I've seen it look really awesome in real life, but I don't think I pulled it off properly here.

I think Bobby and Gorse are busy seeing who has the most exaggerated stories.Not entirely sure who exactly will win out in the end.Of course everyone else is listening in and Mace and Whip especially seem enthralled.Then in the back there is Vi thinking about how the others are just crazy and looking as smug and cute as ever......
If I may say the hot chocolate (although you didn't show much of it) looks appetizing!Just look at me commenting on old deviations between work....Silly me!Still I do like how this fits in with the mood of Prelude and it is nice knowing that everyone in this picture probably had some really good times before things starting going south(For a few of them at least and presumable more later!)in the Graphic Novel Saga.As a former Boy Scout when I was younger too I can attest to how fun staying up extremely late at a camp can be which is why I am a little partial towards this piece.Oh just listen to me going on about it!I should probably shut up now.Still every time go by your page this particular deviation kind of brings me back to my younger days and I like the occasional cheerful pic like this you know.I think at some point somebody should draw Paige being taught by Bobby how to be cool for Mace before Bobby leaves yet again with Paige eagerly learning.....Just saying that it would be kind of cheerful.Ack, look at me going on like that!Better end this comment.

The only thing that bugs me is that I find the clouds kinda distracting.
Still absolutely wonderful!

The fire, the faces, and the moon hanging in the sky all of it give the sense of a semi calm autumn night. Keep up the awesome work. PS Read Volumes 1-3 Loved every panal and can't wait for more.

They're all from the "Prelude" webcomic for the graphic novel series "Dreamkeepers." I definitely recommend checking it out if you get the opportunity. It's really good!

I love all of the detail you always put into your work, such as the faint glimmering of the quartz and micas in the sand or Bobby and Vi's breath in the chilly autumn air here. Whatever story Bobby is telling, everyone seems very engaged (more than they were for Vi's first story, that's for sure).

I've aid this before, but I absolutely adore your style- reminiscent of Cats Don't Dance but with a level of expression and scene-building that makes your work somehow more 'realistic'.


Or maybe I haven't said that before. Anyway, is true.
