Castle Greyhawk: Signs and Messages

Welcome back Greyhawkers! It's theend of 2013 and we made it to page fourteen in the second chapter of our ongoing Castle Greyhawk graphic novel. Follow the link above to get additional story script by fantastical author Scott Casper. Alternatively you can view the page HERE, courtesy of Maldin's Greyhawk.

Artist's Commentary: This episode had some nice artistic elements to it. The bottom four panels are fun because the view is unchanged and you get Robilar and Terik jostling around. Side thought, I wonder which one of them is oldest?

The upper panels I'm quite satisfied with as well. There is a lot of natural cloth draping going on in Tenser's robes (which I've had plenty of practice on by now) and Robilar's cloak. There is also a couple really good profile drawings there, which if you've ever tried to do, is not an easy feat at all.

Last tidbit detail if anyone cares. Every time I draw the squiggly runes on Tenser's sleeves and bracer I am reminded of my old Greyhawk comic where I did the same generic glyphs on Boccob's robes. And every panel they changed. With the god of magic I always imagined that the runes were literally morphing from panel to panel. The same isn't true for Tenser necessarily, but it's just a time saver to make up new runes on his clothes each page.

What? New runes every panel?

Lazy critter!
