IV 18

Don't forget to vote for Malaak!

Page 18 was delayed by an unexpected trip to London as well as by the fact it turned out to be a lot more trouble than I expected. I'm starting to curse the day I decided to adopt a looser style for the parallel narrative; rather than being easier to color and render, it demands a more painterly style that I humbly admit throws me completely. Also the "mess with things till they look kind of right" approach for special effects is... meh.

Anyway, I thought you might like to see what the background was based on:

Love seeing the sketches and the background pictures. It really gives value to the final page and an idea of how much goes into the whole process. Thanks :-)
