One of the very few books school made me read that I enjoyed. Really glad I rushed ahead of the class because the teacher spoiled this part to every one else >.< really like how you have the two of them posed especially the arm holding the gun. Foreshortening is a bitch XD

I think it's needs more dramatic shading, but I like both of their expressions.

This book would have been a nice read, if not for my teacher breathing down my neck when it was assigned. She cared more about comparing the book to the poem "To A Mouse", than us actually reading it. To this day, I see very little connection between the two, if any. Certainly not enough to write an entire persuasive essay about, that's for certain.

I haven't red that book. Probably will this weekend, simply to get context on this image.

This image is so sad.

It took me two school days to read this book, (of course, I was rushing, so I wouldn't have to read it during Christmas vacation this year), but I still understood the story completely. And trust me, I actually cried a bit, and felt rather depressed when poor Lenny died. He's innocent, but nobody, 'cept least George is gonna believe him, especially Curley. He married a harlot, and Curley's a beast. HAH

"The Beast and the Harlot." XD (Avenged Sevenfold song).
But still, the ending is quite tragic and depressing. The dumbest thing of all is what Carlson says at the end of the book about George and Slim.

Somethin' like, "Wonder what's eatin' them?"

It's not enough for a writer to be a great stylist. To be a great writer he must have a great story. Excellent rendering of the tragic ending to "Of Mice and Men"

I didn't expect "Of Mice and Men" to be very good (since it was a book required for my english class), but I really enjoyed it and I literally sobbed at this ending.

I also really like your art style! c: The colors and shading are amazing~! And Lenny's expression is perfect.

Out of all the books I had to put up with in High School, Mice and Men was actually memorable. You can't help but feel bad for both parties of this scene.

This is exactly how it ended, but he was using a shotgun instead of a magnum. Still, the ending was kind of depressing.
