Eep! This is freaking amazing! Admittedly, I had to look up what Copic markers were, having never used them, but seriously... This is brilliant. The way you made the background so dark to contrast with Lyra and Iorek is really good... *jealousy* >< Honestly, this is beautiful. AND I CAN SEE PAN!
Funny story -- mind you, I love your drawing and I think it's quite wonderful, which prompted my memory -- actually. I purchased His Dark Materials, the three stories complied into a single volume, and there about thirty pages missing from the first book. .__. In fact, those pages include this very scene! I've read the book before I purchased it, so I had a chance to familiarize myself with this part. Still, I wasn't thrilled. xDD
