A tribute to The Mighty by Noukah A tribute to The Mighty by Noukah
Been wanting to make a tribute to one of my favorite stories - "Freak the Mighty". A novel written by Rodman Philbrick, which also turned into a great movie.

I've listened to the audiobook and watched the movie countless of times. So here's my interpenation of the characters, tried to depict this warm and fuzzy feeling I get from the story :)

Painted in Photoshop as always. Worked on it on and off whenever I got some smaller breaks at work.

Enjoy!

And of course, Rodman Philbrick owns the rights to this wonderful story.

I agree with your group.
Drunk Drivers are the worst people. They've killed so many people like that.

Oh my goodness!
This is so touching! I mean it! This evokes everything that the book evokes!
Another book that I love by him, which also deals with unexpected friendship,
is The Last Book in the Universe. Its one of the reasons I'm a writer, frankly.

I love the looks on their faces, and Max's untied shoelace is a great detail. There's so much wonder here, it makes me think of Calvin and Hobbes, but with a greater sense of destiny.
You've made a lovely tribute here. ^_^
