Africa! Sorry for the lateness, I'm just back from an uni exam, and I'm hyped cause I passed it XD

Anyway, can't say Paa is as hyped as me. The poor thing barely has the strength to raise his head and look around before collapsing again.

This was a very touching mother-son moment for me to draw. In this comic, animals don't "cry" like humans. The drip of blood going over Paa's eye is as close as it gets to a "tear" how we interpret it. I wanted it to represent his state of mind without words. I haven't focused properly on Nadira for ages, it was just about time she got some screen moments.

Despite everything, Paa is still her big baby <3

So then, I'll say it once here, and I'll never say it again.

...

It is a very sad comic to see, a saddened son with a mother so caring to her son, too bad Africa hasn't had that kind of thing, maybe when she was growing up but not now. It's amazing to see the love between these two it is a pulling of the heart strings moment that is for sure, If it wasn't for that competition he'd be okay, but why not put some drama into the story, Prey vs Predator thing of nature, no matter what you do, nothing can change it. Other than that it is a beautiful piece of work.

Africa is one of my favorite comics on Deviantart. I only really keep up with three different ones but this one is in that small amount. I love comics like these because you really are able to feel the same way the characters do. This can be a bit tricky at times but the impact is great. It's easy to feel sympathy or pride for characters in comics like these.

I say the originality of this is great and the artwork and shading is amazing. The issue I had was that in the fourth box where Paa is looking down as his mother asks what's wrong, his neck seems to be a bit longer compared to what it looks like in other scenes and also to the length of his mother's neck. This may just be my opinion though. The second thing about that was that he seemed a bit skinnier in this box compared to the other scenes but that also may have been on purpose because the grass could cover the rest of his body.

Overall I love the comic and I'm very excited to see what else happens in the story.

...I wonder if Africa's mother saw/heard what happened. If she did, she'll probably think her daughter did it as payback for Nadira killing her would-be eldest sibling.

As for Paa... Well, if there's a way to stop the bleeding and the zebras return to protect him and his mother, then there could be a chance he'll survive... Unfortunately, unless his horn can actually grow back (though I don't think it can), he's going to have a painful reminder of what has occurred on this very day... Well, looks like he won't be getting a mate any time soon.
