Amarantha and Archibald End by AbigailLarson Amarantha and Archibald End by AbigailLarson
I know they're out of order, but that's just how it's happening so far. I thought I'd get some more feedback on the process :D

This is from the end scene:

"Amarantha took the hand of her skeleton friend, and the pair of them lived peacefully beside the cemetery. Amarantha never regained her desire to set foot in the town, and no one came looking for the headless girl."

Amarantha, Archibald and associated characters, images, and text belong to me.

I think this is my fav of these, I think the composition is tight, shows both characters, doesn't have bits of text distracting me, in short I feel like I am getting a intimate look into their interactions the most with this piece.

I really like the style you draw with. I like the way the ribbon looks. You should do some work for the books "A Series of Unfortunate Events".

Did you ever read "The Green Ribbon" by Alvin Schwartz? I was wondering if that was an inspiration for Amarantha's red ribbon.

Yes indeed! That was the (quite loose) basis for this story! I've always loved that idea, ever since I was little, so now I'm trying to bring it back to life :)

In a Dark Dark Room was my absolute favorite book as a kid. I even have pictures of myself with a green ribbon around my neck lol. It's nice to know there are others out there with the same appreciation for that book!

I had a feeling her ribbon kept her head on...
But I love your work!! It makes me want to see the rest of the graphic novel. I can't wait to see it when it is all done and (hopefully) published.

I heard a "horror" story when i was very young about a little girl with a green ribbon around her neck. she grew up and married her grade-school-sweetheart, and one day he asked her about the ribbon she always wore. she agreed to remove it, and when she did her head fell directly off her shoulders.
this seems a little bit similar to that story.

ahh. i wasn't even sure if that was a real story, i just remember another little girl the same age that i was telling it to me. i figured she made it up :P
this looks very interesting though, i hope you do get it published :]

Yeah, I'm actually not sure who the original writer is, but I found a copy of it in a book of scary kids stories called "In a Dark, Dark, Room" :)

At first, I thought, "Headless?" But then I realized that the ribbon/scarf around her neck could hide the fact that she is, in fact, headless (or nearly headless, like Sir Nicholas).

Is the full story somehow related the story from "In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Stories"? I know there's a story in there about a girl who wears a green ribbon around her neck so that her head won't fall off.

Anywho, this is a great picture. I love the details.
