Dark Crystal Guest Art by AyameFataru Dark Crystal Guest Art by AyameFataru
If you didn’t know I was a guest artist for Tokyo pop's fantastic new graphical novel which prequels that one of a kind super fantasy movie "the dark crystal.” The original piece was just a pencil sketch but I thought I’d pretty it up a bit for my deviant fans. I read the first manga and so far it's pretty sweet but it makes me sad cause I know the series isn’t going to end happy. : (

I read the first volume and it's so lovely. The story is wonderful and the art is very pretty (really goes with the movie nicely). Though I can't find a second volume online. Anyone know if it exists?

This was my favorite movie growing up :meow:

*SQUEE* Aha! This was one of my favorite pictures throughout the whole segment! I believe that it looks great both grey and colored. The orange-browns give it a warmer, well deserved fatherly feel. :D

Awww! this is so sweet. It warms my heart and makes me smile. :) I love how you show the Master UrRu his caring for the young Gelfling, Jen. And you drew this two so great that it's like they poped straight out of the movie.

I've also read the manga prequel and I think it's wonderfull. Yeah, I very sure the ending isn't gonna be very happy, but the story itself is too good to not be read.

At least a fan art of a very good movie! Simply amazing, very well done, sweet and mystical. :heart:
Ifaal Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2010
Awwwwww so great! At least, a fan art of a very good movie :heart: I love it, it's very well done and those who know the dark crystal would recognize it! Also, the space in paper is very well managed. So sweet and mysterious, but still amazing 'cos made in your style...
Well, all I can say is BRAVOOOO!
