Africa!

Ladies and gentlemen, enter Lake Magadi of Ngorongoro Crater, the main setting for the comic's second arc.
It's so... pink!
I gotta admit, I'm surprised by how many people correctly guessed that the pinkness of the lake was due to flamingoes! And those who guessed that the lake itself was pink due to algae or salts dissolved in it, you weren't completely wrong either! Flamingoes do feed on algae that grow in this lake, and the water is indeed salty! I'm afraid our little leopard family is going to have a hard time drinking from it.

This double splash page took me SO long, but I'm very very pleased with how it came out.
Yes, I did indeed hand draw every single fricking flamingo you see in that lake. You're welcome.
On that regard, would you guys be interested in purchasing posters of this image? Because if so, I'd be delighted to print them!
Let me know in the comments!

In the meantime, enjoy the page :)

Also, an important announcement! I will be on holiday throughout the second week of Semptember! (Sept 11th-17th), therefore I will be unable to post anything during that time. For this reason, the next Africa page will be posted on DeviantART on September 20th!

Bon je vais rédiger ça en français, désolé pour nos amis anglophones ^^'

Avant de commencer je tiens a dire que j'ai lu toute la BD et bon sang c'est du très très haut niveau sur toute la ligne, mais cet espèce de flou qu'il y a depuis une dizaine de pages est juste sublime c'est incroyable.

Concernant ces deux pages ,ce sont clairement les deux meilleurs de toute la BD le paysage est sublime, le flou admirablement bien géré et des couleurs flamboyantes, franchement tu dois absolument nous apprendre à utiliser les crayons de couleurs comme tu le fais : incroyablement bien !
What do you think?

Anyone who knows anything about flamingos will know that the water they inhabit is not a good place for practically any other creature.

Couldn't help coming to stare at this picture.  And I've noticed some animals drinking the water of a small stream, that I imagine feeds into the lake. So maybe that is fresh water? I'll go back to starring at this picture now...excuse me.

Well... If they can't drink the water, they can at least feed on the flamingos that drink the water.

Lake Magadi! (A.K.A flamingo paradise!!) ...I do wonder how will Africa and her cubs adapt to living by it's shores (it'd be a good source for prey and sweet water--yet would it be unguarded? won't any other leopard possess the territory alrady o.o
BEAUTIFUL split--page, my friend: I love the intensity of the colors and the pose of everyone here!

Wow! :o The perspective of this page! The details! :la: It's absolutely amazing that we can even see individual flamingoes there, but I spot other animals as well, gnus and antelopes. :)

And even if the lake is salty, there would be streams or a river flowing either into or from the lake that the animals could use as a water source. ;)
