The Darkest Hour 54-57

These pages have been really difficult. I took a bit of time over them, but I'm still not happy with them. This episode is important, but hard to get right. I chose to continue with the tale rather than to linger over the difficulties; I'll edit later. Suggestions are welcome!

Because sometimes I need to use a pencil, an eraser, a Staedtler pen and some watercolour paint, to prove to myself that I can still do more or less finished pictures.

The Darkest Hour 51-53

I'm sorry about the delay. Here are the next three pages. They are inked in a few different styles, with pens and brushes, just as a try-out. I still haven't made up my mind at to how to ink the definitive version :/. Opinions?

The Darkest Hour, 48-50

So here we are, at page 50, and the less-than-nice beginning of the Arthurian epic. It's probably not much of a consolation, but Ygraine will have her revenge one day.

Hm. In the first panel, Ygraine is a giant, and in the second she is a giraffe. But it gets better from the third on :-).

The Darkest Hour 45-47

There was a time when I posted three pages in an update. Then I posted more. Now I'm back to three :-). Mind you, there may be more next time - it depends on how I tell the story. Today's set of three happens to fill the last three pages of my current notebook. And next week's update will include page 50! That's quite a milestone for me :-).

Oh, I must add a correction: on the second page, in the last speech bubble, please replace the second "battle" with "fighting". I didn't notice this until I was cleaning up the scan :/.

We are getting to the ugly crux of the story. I wish it were more cheerful, but it isn't. We have to wait for Gawain to get to the fun bits of my tale.

As always, constructive criticism is very welcome!
