Man, Christoph, you art is stunning! Did you work digitally this time?
What a loooovely group shot! I sorta liked the Rebels, I think and there is definitely veeeery little fanart of them. Such a great heroic shot!
Could easily be a real comic cover! Awww, Rosie!

This grouping is definitely unsung and have had so very little time in the limelight.  In fact, I think at least two of them have never been drawn as far as I know.  I admit I'm not great with their names, although I did read some of the series.  Rosie (I think the mutant preserver is named) looks so delighted and proud to handle the Little Palace.  Very cute, and you captured her look so very well here.  I think you flattered Scorch extremely well (redhead in the center); love how you drew him and it has is personality undeniably showing through.  Shimmer looks amazing as well; I don't think I could ever manage to draw him effectively.  Excellent work!  I hope you don't vanish for another year.  We all would love to see more of your artwork!

Indeed, these guys are never drawn. I think I only read their storyline once, though I did like Rosie. Love how you added the lodstone, bridge of destiny and the little palace.

I thumbnailed out a few sketches of Chandra and Rosie when the theme was first revealed, seeing artwork of them makes me very happy! The dynamic of the group is spot on, this is a great piece!

I know nothing about them, but your pic intrigues me. It makes me really curious about the Rebels storyline. Great job!

Thanks Treefox! Yep, skipped to digital some time ago as it’s so much more forgiving 
@CZarine - thanks
@Amberfox - it was my goal to make him (all of them actually) looke more like Wendys coverart than what he looked like in the comics
@Startear - thanks. While looking for references I re-read the story, but tbh I still don’t get it
@wildfir - thanks
@thanks - I unfortunately can’t recommend the story 

Wow, those are some spots of colour! The background is subtle but fits in nicely. And very good lines.
And I guess it's a futuristic one, too. I admit I hardly now the issues of Jink, Rebels and what they're called, but I wonder if there is also a touch of Star Trek and Star Wars into it.

They are so comic-ish drawn - wonderfull! The hair and faces - also pose and Clothes reminds me on SF Novels out of the 60ties. I really love it! Also a good call, to making the background less colorful, so they stands out a lot more. Great art, great inking and coloring. Love it!

Never read any of these, just remember seeing that preserver in those old Dutch Elfquest clubbooklets from the '90s in which they kept track of new publications, and me not knowing what they were talking about. ;D
Again your way of lighting the picture stands out to me though!
