Nightingale by KayFedewa Nightingale by KayFedewa
doing some writing - but its so hard not to draw the characters!
did some really rough sketches of this guy - liked this one so i lined it, filled it with color and put it up for you to see :)

He's from the same universe as Swiftkill and friends - but lived and died many generations ago.

Nightingale is probably the most masterful hunter thats living at his time. He's the only wolf to take down a Great Horn (megaloceros) single-handedly. His techniques can only be described as artful. Quite a bit older than he looks, he is very patient, has a smart sense of humor and is wise on a wide range of topics. He has a rather keen interest in human affairs, although the site of his dark form frightens villagers. 
Nightingale speaks in poetic metaphors, which which is what earned him his moniker. No one knows his birthname.

Someone heavily referenced this pic from you Kay. I highly doubt you gave permission to do so ><

I love this character! Almost as much as Swiftkill!
I think this is a awesome pose! It really makes him look like the badass he is.

I hope that you and Esda will soon start on BBA again or at least release some new pages of the re-make :).
I miss you guys with BBA and when I see this ... it would be epic to have flashbacks in the comic, like if they would talk about the infamous hunter, etc. ^^.

Dunno, even if the story was not as deep, I always enjoyed BBA and I am sure a lot of people would be happy with uncolored versions, just to see the comic coming back <333.
