Castle Greyhawk: Ice Breaker

Welcome again fans of Greyhawk! Today I'm happy to plug the latest episode of our ongoing Castle Greyhawk graphic novel. Check out page thirty-four to see some breath-taking battles conjured up by Scott Casper. On our site you can also check the archives and follow the entire Castle Greyhawk story from the very beginning.

Artist's Commentary: The more I draw this dragon, the better it seems to get. The chapter has got to end soon though, so I can't get too attached to this ol' ice wyrm. He doesn't even have a name! 
I think a lot of the artistic weight to these panels comes from the fact I've been watching The Hobbit extended edition movies and at the same time finished playing WotC's Rise of Tiamat. Any dragon worth his salt, like Smaug, just bully their way around a movie screen or comic page for that matter. 
It's fun then to see how Scott manages to squeeze our heroes into the scene while the white dragon is flailing about in all directions. 

With that in mind, it's also good to have dungeonmaster experience in composing these types of comic scenes. Positioning is good to know. Terik is on the left, Robilar to the right, Serten behind and well, Tenser was up front but bailed. Speaking of bailing, where did Murylund go?

More next time.

This dragon hasn't had a name for a very long time now. I think I'll call him Billy.
