Reepicheep and Matthias by Aeternus-Spero Reepicheep and Matthias by Aeternus-Spero
Teehee...:giggle:

I've been reading Redwall and Narnia (via audiobook) and decided that this had to happen.

There are so many similarities!! I mean, sword-wielding mice and wise old badgers?! I think I've got to do one with Constance and Trufflehunter. (Sparra vs. Phoenix :XD:)

I based the design for Reepicheep off the 3D character design in the movie of Prince Caspian. I've never seen a Redwall movie, though I'm pretty sure there's one out there. I've seen screenshots. *shudder* They make Matthias look so silly. I wanted him to look like he was in the thick of battle, not like the floppy-sandaled mouse he was in the beginning of the book.

I'd like to do more fanart from these books someday...I have a few Narnia-related sketches underway currently. :plotting:

I like to think that at the end of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Reep went from the ends of the world (the edge of Narnia) to Mossflower Wood, where he continued his adventures.

What a wonderful story that would be, huh?

(runs off to get a notebook and take notes…)

w-wow, I believe your version of Matthias is better than how he was in the tv series. Awesome job, they both look really awesome :clap:

oh, DON'T! I can't Decide which one's better!!!!!!!!!!!! :D And NO, there are not that many similarities. the utter lack of sons of adam and daughters of eve in the Redwall series, for instance. oh, and Matthias is like the chosen one, and Reepicheep is just . . . awesome. period. oh, and also the fact that Reepicheep should technicaly be taller than the rest of the mice in Redwall . . . talking Narnian animals are always bigger than the normal animals of the same species, particulrly when it comes to mice (though I admit they are not as big as they were in the BBC movie). Redwall does have a movie. . . . in fact, a fourth season is coming out, featuring Mossflower (some animation studio already did Redwall, Mattimeo, and Martin the warrior). and this is entirely fan-based . . . :D

Narnia and Redwall are my consistent fantasy worlds and they both are very inspiring for art!
your stuff is AMAZING!!!!!! Please don't stop! and it would be RIGHTEOUS if they made a Redwall type movie now with the quality they are putting into Narnia Chronicles. here's hope'n

*cough, snort* Hahahahahaha! Great idea! The look on Reepicheep's face makes me think that this is more of a practice fight; I mean, I've never heard of two mice sword fighting each other for real in the actual books (although it does happen in fanfiction, including one of mine - well, one of mine in the making). And you're right; Matthias looks like a - well, like a dork in the animated movie. I wish they'd used your design; he looks like a normal, sane creature who might actually be a warrior here.

Would be a fun crossover, though I've gotta wonder what the Abbeydwellers would make of the fact that Narnian talking animals don't wear anything.

When I first read Redwall, I didn't have it in my mind that the woodlanders wore much clothing, except for the habits. But I suppose they do sometimes. I think the Redwallers wouldn't be too judgemental; I'd just like to see their faces if they ever saw a centaur. "I say, ol' thingy, whatever's a chap need six footpaws for, laddiebuck?" :D

That's okay, I just always had a picture in my head of what he would look like, and the screenshots really blew my vision away...

The series isn't all that good. Most of the voice actors aren't the best and the dialogue is, in my opinion, terrible at some points, but I haven't really watched it all that much. Still, some of the scenes are good. I'll leave you to your own opinion.

<3 I love them both!!! I guesse I can have Reepicheep.. since Matthias is married and has a son. I see Matthias changing from that clumsy novice to a brave Warrior in the book.

he looks bad in the series because hes young. in the mattimeo series he looks older and tougher.

Ha, never would have thought of this. Two of my favorite mice fighting, why can't they be friends? Maybe their just sparing.
Anyway, good job on this one, and I'd love to see some other crossover pieces.

O hhe's hillarious! He was Martin the Warrior's best friend! He goes by the title Prince Of Mousetheives. He's kind of like a Robin Hood figure, only a lot more humorous. XD

Sounds funny! You should definitely do it; he sounds like a better match for Reep...more swash and less buckle. :D

Actually Gonff hardly ever fights! When he does he uses daggers! I was going to put him in a humor kind of thing. XD

No! A good match for Reepicheep in combat would be Redwall's original heroine himself! Martin the Warrior! Oh! Battle scene just popped into my head! Gotta draw! 8D *runs off*

THANKS!!!
