So here we are - the final page of Chapter 1. I really wanted to convey the isolation Saphyr finds herself in at this particular moment and that, while there may still be a ray of hope, it is far, far in the distance and out of reach. The original pencils for this page didn't quite do that justice and I had a really tough time getting the scale of the foreground and background right so that it was clear those bars in the front are not so wide apart that Saphyr could just walk through them - we are just peeking through them into her cell of sorts.
Clearly, recent events have shaken our heroine and it remains to be seen (if she ever escapes her predicament - The Pit still awaits!) if she will emerge with her body and spirit intact and unchanged.
These and many more questions will be answered in the second chapter - ‘The Book’.

Thanks to all the current readers and all those who stuck with me throughout, I appreciate the support and enthusiasm - here's to the next 30 pages!

Really cool page. Love the composition and the despairing body language.

I feel like society can place people into a prison of "social isolation, simply for disagreeing with popular beliefs. It's too bad we all can't have a more open mind to the ideas of others.
Those are the thoughts and feelings your image invokes within me.
I look forward to the beginning of the next chapter.
