EDIT
Completely replacing this deviation's file, those old drawings are no longer accurate~
There's a bit funky stuff going on with compared proportions of these two, but I'll adjust things later.

This tale follows two characters, Murmoose and Kettleson--close friends whose circumstances divide them and their ventures early in the plot.

Ahhhh they both have such an updated look, it's so pretty!~ I'm gonna combine this comment with a comment on the other submission you made of only Kettleson to save some time :XD:

I really like Kettleson's (or do you prefer he be called Kot?) backround story! If I remember correctly, Murmoose is a part of the Deru, so I'm assuming that's the circumstance that divides them? But I remain curious, are you writing and drawing a story too? :XD: Cuz if you are you better tell me more about this story asldjflsdj

Glad you like their updated looks! What I was going for before wasn't working, but I'm really satisfied with this bit more realistic style. Finding a way to ink digitally that looks the same as my traditional inking was a huge help too (the thicker lines were real uncomfortable for me to work with, but photoshop is horrible with thinner lines. Sai all the way!)

Kot/Kettleson/Ket, it doesn't matter, it changes throughout the story so whatever you prefer :XD: Man, I'm glad you took the time to read somma the stuff I wrote and wonder what's going on! Bascially Ket gets "rescued"/kidnapped by the Sea Wolves so that's what literally divides him and Murmoose.

We're planning on this being a comic, though we're still really working on all the visuals so it's not even close to being near making page layouts and stuff lol... I'll tell you more in a letter!

Ahahah I've heard of the whole Photoshop being horrible with linearting :XD: Apparently the lines are always crooked? But with SAI they're really smooth XD

So wait, then was Kettleson supposed to be a part of the Deru but due to being rescued/kidnapped he's not? Are the Deru and Sea Wolves a clan/race or a political group? Ahhh I wanna know more :D As you'll notice in my letter It seems we're both pretty hard at work with our stories :lmao: Though when you say "we" does that mean it's going to be a collaboration comic? I'm curious, who are you collaborating with?

Yeah, in photoshop, the lines are really wobbly and I couldn't ever get smaller line sizes to look sharp instead of blurry. I'm really glad to have found out Sai's line arting capabilities!

Hm, I will tell you more in the letter (which I'm writing right now!). I'm collaborating with ~Spatty though =)

I can't wait to see how these two get along in the future. :D This is the first time I've notice what a nice job you did in designing their outfits!

Thanks! I'm horrid at designing clothes, but I'm very happy with these two's outfits. I want clothing that's simple but not plain, iconic for each character without going overboard with detail. The other characters' outfits still need work I think, but at least the main characters' clothes are good!

I'm not the best at designing clothes, either. :XD: Good luck on your future designing endeavours! ;p

The staff actually...looks pretty good. Maybe a bit more etchins in it, but I like the broken/worn out tip

looks good! hehe, but to be honest seeing these fellas is like watching your younger sibling get older, there may be differences for sure, but i've seen them so many times i can't tell XD XD XD the stick tho, that's a nice stick :}

Yeah, the differences are something only a creator would notice :XD: Glad you like the stick. We're still debating if it should have a bit more in terms of design.
