The Cattle Raid of Cooley – some false starts

Still not ready to continue the story, but to tide you over I thought I’d share with you something I found on a memory stick this morning. Before I did Ness I made a couple of false starts at adapting the Cattle Raid, which for reasons of confidence I never got very far on. These ones began with a very famous scene that I left out of the final version – the “pillow talk” scene between Ailill and Medb.

This one, in pencil, is from 2004:

And another attempt at the same scene from 2006, which I drew digitally using a graphics tablet.
