Chapter 2 begins with our stranger. We still don't know a lot about him…but maybe some more clues will emerge in this Chapter? At least now you know what he looks like clean-shaven.
I enjoyed doing the ‘aspect to aspect’ panels (as Scott McCloud would say) on this page, giving a sense of place and pacing.
I'm also very pleased with the last panel - I achieved what I wanted to with that page, giving an interesting perspective but also going in close on the character in a contemplative state, which is what this page is all about.
This is also the first page in the comic where I actually had to refer to photographic reference material - I still haven't quite figured out the back muscles yet.
I promised more nudity - and here it is! Before some of you start worrying that this will turn in to some sort of Beefcake comic, don't worry, I hope you can see that this is entirely gratuitous and since Saphyr showed some skin in the first Chapter, it is only fair that a male protagonist gets the same treatment in this Chapter.
My approach to this comic is that I will not shirk away from violence or nudity or draw neutered characters - but it will never be purely gratuitous.

I don't think in-context nudity is a problem at all. It certainly doesn't across as gratuitous. Great page, as always.
