Reepicheep and Matthias by Aeternus-Spero Reepicheep and Matthias by Aeternus-Spero

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
