What an actual gigantic Ikoro looks like. There are smaller ones though that I've seen and touched.
And there are so many things about the Ikoro that I may discuss one day but for now these are the juicy bits.

Looks like you need to be strong to make the drum sound proper

Yeah, of course. Big men beat the ikoro. Men with mith mighty arms. That's no easy work.

Thanks for posting this. Always love it when cartoonists (or other creatives for that matter) show their work so thoroughly.

Fantastic page dude! So cool to see people's inspirations. I've never heard of this drum till now, and the twist you put on the design is dope!

Looked at a video of the Ikoro and I can see how it's sound would be ominous and forewarning.

Cool! Those drums are enormous, both of them!

and always interesting to see where the ideas and inspiration came from, and how you add your own spin to it.

Thanks a lot. The drum is sacred so I figured if I was going to alter it in my story, I better let readers know what the original looks like.
