Men and Beasts by Mayeko Men and Beasts by Mayeko
Line up of the three prominent races highlighted in Frostbit.

From left to right is Queen Canute (Barta's Mum), SOME GUY (in hindsight I probably should have drawn Roland; who is a main character, but that would have made too much sense), Barta and Ask.

Note that Barta is ~12 years old when the story takes place, to she's pretty tiny compared to the rest of her tribe, but will grow up to be well over six feet.

OMG please make more of this comic!

Oh and Question! where'd you get the idea for having to kill her father as a right of passage? Any specific folklore?

It was said that long ago, Mongolian women were not allowed to marry until they managed to kill someone in battle.

Barta is 12 and what is thi :iconexplodingheadplz:

Roland is an awesome design, and Barta's mom looks badass. Are there other norse creatures in this, or is it more of a, like....bottleneck story (it feels like a quest story, though)?

There are Spartan sea faring dwarves, nomadic Mongolian plains elves and hiveminded trolls who serve as a looming threat. The first two don't really get seen since Barta stays in the human country of Medea for most of the story.

It is indeed a quest story, she has to find and kill her father as a rite of passage into adulthood.

Oh awesome. =O Medea, that's clever. This sounds interesting, I can't wait to see what comes from it. Though, that seems like it would certainly deter from the desire to procreate, killing dad. Then again, Praying Mantises still do it.

Oh man Barta is adorable. So is Ask!

Also, what brush did you use on this? I dig the kinda jittery, fluffy look you've got going on there. :0

I use the fuzytastic brush in SAI set to 100% with varying density (opacity)
