So Let me be a Fool by ashwara So Let me be a Fool by ashwara
"If to be a hero is to be a fool, let me be a fool!"

A comic! I've been working super hard on it the past few weeks... I started it two weeks ago exactly. It was for the comics class we're we had two weeks instead of one to do a comic, so I decided to go ALL OUT. And I totally neglected all my other classes. Ha ha.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy it! It's not quite as finished and clean as I would hope, but I did as much as I could in this short amount of time.

*Nightingale628 says, "A gorgeously painted comic with an adorable style, fantastic storytelling, and a captivating atmosphere. The comic itself and the moral within it are both very inspirational! "
~Suzuka-dono says, "I've always enjoyed Ashwara's comics and illustrations, they're simple and entertaining, and at times breathtakingly beautiful. But this one is brilliant. Though his story clearly takes place in a world other than our own, the way he presents it and the message that he expresses is so pure and entirely relatable. "

THIS! I've seen this on dA years ago and couldn't find it anymore later. I've searched so long for this. One of my two favourite inspirational works of all time :heart:

Great story with such a simple execution. You picked the words really well too. Your character designs are so simple yet likeable.

I wanted to just gush and gush over just how amazing this was but in the end I decided just to say, you inspired me to do a good deed and i hope that person will do a good deed as well and as that goodwill is passed around the thanks for it all in the end. Comes down to you, so thank you.

I love this piece of a comic!
Its awesome simple but so true at the same time!
Also shows that a 'hero' don't think to be a hero at the time he really IS.At retrospect maybe, but not in the moment, in the moment he or she just do what they supose to be the it comes to them.

I love this one!

I like your style. It's happenstance... meaningful and emotive.

Bah, lazy. I've seen "finer" technical artists with no character.

Communication is the means, is it not, for art?

Achieved. ^^
ashwara Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011   Filmographer
That's very true! Communication. That's something I have to remember.

"A hero needs no someday." How incredibly profound. Love your artwork too it's so cute!

I think that the line"A hero needs no someday" is one of the most profound things I've read in a while. Wonderful comic with an even more wonderful message. :)

Thank you for neglecting class to bring us this. So awesome!
Maiumaora Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's just....Adorable....
I'm sure someone else would say inspiring, but small acts of kindness don't strike me that way, because I am a cold-hearted asshat....
