Last of the Polar Bears pg 1-2 by LCibos Last of the Polar Bears pg 1-2 by LCibos
The Last of the Polar Bears is now available as a webcomic here: [link] I post a new double-page spread every week, on Mondays, as well as write about the graphic novel process as time allows. Please check it out! :heart:


It's been a while since I last posted any tidbits about The Last of the Polar Bears graphic novel am working on, so here's a quick update with the first two pages. The proposal is currently making its rounds with agents. In the meantime, I'm continuing to work on more comic pages. I wanted to share the first few pages with all of you.

Enjoy!

(Something fun to note is that all of the panel borders on these pages are "hand-drawn", that is, without the benefit of rulers. I wanted them to have a very organic, rough quality to them. That's why they have little squiggles and imperfections. Requiring a very steady hand, they take a lot longer to do, but I love the effect.)

Last of the Polar Bears pg 1-2 by *lcibos is a beautiful start to a wonderful webcomic. The warm colours of the adorable little bear cubs contrasted with the cold landscape really leaves you with a cosy, heart-warming feeling that will probably put a smile on your face.

I love the way you used the Ursa Major and Ursa Minor (is that the name in English?^^;) to introduce your characters, which are indeed bears. Very well planned!

The artwork is outstanding, the way you paint digitally leaves me speechless, and the contrast between warm and cold colours is really well done.
Keep up the great work!

I'm so sorry to keep everyone hanging on the storyline. :(

I actually have the next 20 or so pages completely drawn, but unfortunately the last couple months have been consumed with freelance work, leaving me with no time to finish them. Freelance work has been good for keeping a roof over my head, not so good for our polar bear family's adventure. I'm not sure when the next update will be, but hopefully I'll be able to start working polar bear pages back into my schedule soon.

I'm really concerned about manatees deaths down here in Florida from the past few unusually cold winters that have killed off many of these docile creatures: [link]

I think I'd choose a docile herbivore animal over an aggressive killer carnivore animal any day.

In the end, it's all about survival. All creatures deserve the right to live.

But Polar Bears kill beautiful white baby seals, is that ok? Yes or no answer please.

It's not a matter of is it okay, it's about survival. Polar Bears need to eat meat to survive, it's what they do, it's how they survive.

Just because you disagree with how it goes about surviving, does not in anyway disregard it's right to survive.

Besides, that is kind of hypocritical as the Harp Seal grows up to also be a Carnivorous hunter that hunts penguins. It's a chain that helps keep nature in check, so one species does not become too dominant.

Harp Seals are also not endangered, unlike the Polar Bears.

So, to make this perfectly clear. It does not matter if I think it is okay or not, I don't like the idea either, but I have the level of understanding to realize all creatures have a right to survive, no matter how they go about it.
