Castle Greyhawk: Arrival!

Finally back up to speed, it's time for page eighteen of the Castle Greyhawk graphic novel adaptation. If you're just finding this for the first time be sure to go back to the beginning and read Scott Casper's additional material over at the dedicated blog for Castle Greyhawk.
You can also view the latest episode HERE courtesy of Maldin's Greyhawk. Enjoy!
Artist's Commentary: Wow that was a doozy of a panel to draw. I have to admit I enjoy drawing nature slightly more than architecture mainly because things like trees and clouds don't have to be perfect. This castle was worth the trouble to illustrate though and might be among the best drawings I've ever done. Humorously, as I was sketching this castle, I was often reminded of Castle Greyskull for some reason. That's not the inspiration though. For those not informed the layout of this castle is possibly closer to what Gygax imagined for his Castle Greyhawk rather than the ruined turrets of Greyhawk Ruins in later editions. Now to find out what lurks behind those walls!
