I really hope he's okay at least, I know how time consuming life can become. I'm pretty confident he will return.  :glowingfiver

Heh, you'd like to read it? ^_^ Well, I want to wait some more, but eventually I can try to work something out using the google translator, and transform the result into a good english. It's just I want it as good as possible in english, so it's well readable, understandable, even no slips of the pen, so the same image I had in my mind while writing, arises in the one of the reader. I'll have a look around, what I can do.

Anyways, I got something else to share, tho, I don't know, if this might be of big interest, so I hope I can share it here as well.
For not losing control of who is who, and who is what in Efrafa, I created myself an organigram, with the several degrees of Owsla, and their hierarchy. I still need to create a lot of more reference sheets for all the unillustrated rabbits.  :granite
Most information I gathered from the book and series and added some stuff here and there on my own.  :snowdrop
And as a little gimmick I gave each an individual signature, which, in my opinion, would fit their acting and personality somehow.

Warning, kinda huge image (3+MB).
(It becomes more clear by opening only the image in a new tab)

The first chapter was very promising.

This organigram is very interesting.  I like how you mixed the characters from the book with those from the series, and your OCs.  It must have taken a while to make.

Thanks, Chipster! Yeah, it was quite a work to get it done. Had to re-read/watch everything to get it connected correctly. ^_^

Another piece of art a good friend of mine drew for me: My boyfriend (he's more a fox, than a rabbit x3) and me, with/without some accessories we're wearing. x3

A rabbit in a relationship with a fox?  That's unusual, but interesting.  Anyway, great pictures.

I am also puzzled. Surely he will eat the rabbit in more ways than one. Very good drawing and good love. LOVE ALIVE !!!     :silverweed

Hrhr, well, I guess I'm a buck who likes to play with fire then. x3

Anyways, I got something new, some of you maybe want to see. He's one of my newest characters I'm developing in my story. His name is Vattke, staff manager of the mark right foreleg, at the orders of officer Hawk and captain Vervain. He's a strong, very strict, and well trained Owsla. His loyalty belongs to Woundwort and Efrafa alone. There's nothing more important for him. He has a slight sadistic side, as he just loves his position in his warren, not backing off to daunt the other rabbits below him. Especially the slaves. He's emotionally cold, and callous.
After a selection training Leo had the chance to fight with him, to prove his skills to captain Campion, getting the vague opportunity to become a member of the Owsla of Efrafa. Leo defeated him, pinning him down with his weight to the ground, raising his paw just about to strike him down, as Campion ended the fight. Since then he has an (understandable) disfavor against Leo. His pride was injured, and he wants to regain it - at all costs.

Nice character! Also nice art in general, wow. The picture of you and your boyfriend looks great, by the way :D

Nice job!

Very good picture, very detailed.  The character's backstory is interesting.

Heh, thanks Strifer!  :snowdrop  Glad you like it! It was an idea, as a present for him, to our anniversary, four years ago yet. o.o

Also thanks to all of you all for your kind words, I was thinking about to tell bits of the story by pictures, as we wait for the next part of the translation.
Also thank you Chipster for linking my story here to the others who asked.

Who'd like to read more (there are nearly 10 chapters published, and 13 already written and just about to be published) I have more on my deviantart page: Watership Down - Tigris und Euphrates: Vol. 1 Efrafa
The thing is just... it's in german, heh. x3

Thank you all for your kind words. Motivating to continue my work! *salutes*
