Artwork for the series’ deuteragonist, River, has begun. This is what Joe and I have completed so far. There will be some delays due to our work schedules, but if things open up we should have him done by the end of next week, hopefully sooner. He has been drawn in this way to get a better idea at his figure prior to adding his wardrobe.
River is easily the most important character apart from the series’ fire breathing star, and has in many ways been the most difficult to realize because it is easy to fall back on tried and true cliches and miss out on originality. But with this draft coming along, I think his humble beginnings are pretty well set.
Obviously some more work will have to go into him, but this is what we have so far.Chapter 4 was completed. A lot of cutting and a lot of condensing, but the story is much better for it now. Hope you enjoy this preview and thanks for reading.
