Always Faithful by c-t-elder Always Faithful by c-t-elder
Fancy a trip down the memory lane? Those of you who visit my streams every now and again probably know this piece has been rotting around my hard drive for about four months by now. Considering it started as a background piece for Issue #2, I'd say it went a damn long way (it's still gonna be in the said issue though).

This is what the team looked some... ten years ago, methinks? Or thirteen. Time's never been my strong suit, that's why I need to write that kind of stuff down firsthand. Which I did. But it's too dark for me to see now. Anyway. Back in those ancient ages, this still wasn't considered a memento for mostly dead people. From those that remained, Lambert grew a beard (both really and trope-ally), Colby grew and Ginny grew some hips. And also a beard (only trope-ally this time). Rupert.... actually didn't change pretty much at all, now that I think about it.

For those of you not following us, from left to right:
Rupert, the founder. Lambert, the leader who came from medieval times. Morris, now retired. Tessa, tech whiz, lost and presumed deceased. Ethan, Colby's father, killed in action. Colby, the lynx-horse hybrid and freak/miracle of nature. Ginny, the team's diplomat, still in active duty. And Rose, Ginny's best friend, now twisted by the Artifact she's bound to guard beyond recognition.

As a side note, next page of Semper Fi is done, ready and even printed and you'll see it next Wednesday right on schedule.

Always Faithful by c-t-elder uses such a beautiful array of monochromes and tones that really help to bring out the unique quality of this piece. The details are superb. A beautiful portrait of friends and family. Walk down memory lane with this beautiful piece! ( Featured by KovoWolf )

Thank you! The story is currently my pet project, so I'm pouring pretty much 110% of my free time and energy (so I'm either bad with math or I'm overspending myself...probably both) into it, this piece included. I'm glad it shows :)

I'm getting some Blacksad vibes from this piece.

Which is good! 'Cos I fuggen LOVE Blacksad.

c-t-elder Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Awesome! Blacksad's actually one of my main inspirations in writing my own stuff. Blacksad, Amy Hennig's sharp character writing, Chris Claremont's X-Men and Neil Gaiman's Art speech. Four things I build upon. So glad it shows! :)

Neat :D

Gaiman's writing is very good also. Not sure I know of Amy Hennig or Claremont.. I do know 'bout them x-mens though.
