Der Erlkonig 2 by AsheRhyder Der Erlkonig 2 by AsheRhyder
A prequel in 3 parts. 2/3. Happy holiday.

Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one. The poem quoted here is Goethe's.

So....is it just me, or does the child look like KidJareth who promised Sarah he'd love her forever? Are Goblin Kings made or born?

Can't say as I'm a fan of your charcoal(?) drawings. It gives it a certain aspect that suits the storyine, but it makes reading the script a damn site harder.

Oh, you're just taking out whole chunks of it to emphasize certain aspects. Hm. Interesting.

OMB I have seen that "Ich Liebe Dich" before.... In the Wild Hunt arc, Erl had it as his flashback/nightmare...

Wow.

Just...

Wow.

Sunnuvawitch.

Taking on the original poem done straight and with the slight twists of your own mythos - ambitious! Lovely graphical work here.

I am still too messed up by Subtilior's spin on that tale, mind you. But it does mesh so nicely with the darker hints in Labyrinth...

Is it bad that all I can see is Jareth sister and think "AW! Look at her! She's so cute!"
Alternate point, Erkonig says "daughters" as in multiple, not singular. does jareth have other sisters through him? sorry, dumb question.
