I'm pretty sure that the story was intentionally given a steam punk feel, yes. And if you don't know what Steam punk is, feel free to google it, so you get a better definition than just "fantasy-based, future Victorian era design". I love the style, but it's hard to put into words.

The style feels familiar from the bat, well suited to a children's book. So I am glad that you plan to make the book for real.
Somehow I am overlooking the rhime which served as a constant and stable rithm in the original poem, to which a child could cling even during the frightening moments. I see you have made clever use of text sizes. Perhaps the rhime could be enhanced by repeated text positions (1. upper left - 2. lower right), or dividing each poem paragraph in black-white-black-white text colours. Take well into account how adjacent pages combine the texts, though I think I needn't point it out.
In any case, this is definately a book that should be read aloud. Graphically I have no critisism at all.

I identify with it, since I too burble often.

I will buy this if you put it out as a book, just to let you know. It's going gorgeously.

Hah, it looks kind of like a gulper eel! :D I adore all the detail you were able to achieve with just black and white. :+fav:

Love this series so far. Honestly, if you did the whole poem up like this and had it put out through Lulu or somewhere as a book, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I'm going to have to gather all of these :) This is my all-time favorite poem. It even beats out "The Road Less Traveled" and "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening"

The scale you've chosen heightens the drama.

I can easily imagine how little kids will identify with the tiny character and his giant sword.

Was somebody watching Disney's Hercules recently?

*ahem*

Still loving this. Even more than the first page, maybe...just for the wider scale, if anything. That sword's still messin' with me--now the blade is nice and flat, but the crossbit and guard are still all tilted. Also I miss all the hundreds of hundreds of eyeballs in this one. Page 1 had like, 50? Whereas here I can almost count them on my fingers. And even then the ones I can see don't have teeth. Except for those two in the bottom right with uppercase Ms in their mouths.

That said...

...Really I'm just complaining to stop myself from saying "this is really cool" hundreds times in one comment.

Because this is really cool.

Thank you, jj. I don't often get constructive criticism, and right now it's especially useful, since I have another week till it's due. Glad you like it. =) And I'll get back to work.

Yeah yeah. It's something I see too often around here--all these awesome artists post all these awesome pieces, and all these other artists look at them...but can't manage anything more than a canned compliment.

I'd like to think that when a bunch of artists get together, they'd be able to help each other get better...

Because not many people behave like professionals around art. They get attached and make things personal, instead of treating it as an objective work. Amateurs act whiny because they want approval, and viewers don't feel like getting whined at for misjudging the artist's desire for criticism.
So nobody says anything useful.

So again, thank you.
