The old leg stump to eye socket move...never fails!

This page went through quite a bit of work and needed a bit of fixing of proportions from the pencils to the final inks stage. In particular, Saphyr's right arm was too short and her body was too small in relation to her head, so I increased their size digitally (I'm a traditional guy, but sometimes the PC is a lifesaver!)

I was also struggling with the writing on this one as I wasn't quite sure the panels would speak for themselves - hope it's clear what is going on.

Bottom line - making comics is HARD!

Another amazing page Chris, really stunning, love how she closes one eye to stop the blood from going in, that's a nice touch I'd never have thought of.

Driven by doubt, something I, the artist, can relate to a great deal, though honestly I think, in my case anyway, it's more often held me back then driven me forward.

Thanks so much guys!

In Saphyr's case I don't think the doubt is a constructive, driving force rather than a frustration that just makes her more angry. And you wouldn't like her when she's angry ... ;)

Doubt and what it does to someone who has grown up and lived in Saphyr's environment will be one of the themes explored in The Cull as the story unfolds...

You are the second person on comicfury within a month's time that has illustrated a concept that only I thought I had ever conceived, and that is to impale someone with a broken bone!

Lol...great minds think alike. Yuck indeed - glad I'm not in that pit with a pissed-off Saphyr!

She's real good at using weapons of opportunity. Looks like it's 5 to 1. If she managed to garotte the one in the middle she's more than half way there.

You're keeping good count! She may do more than garotte him, though ;). Find out next update!

I love the graphic tone this strip has taken. Beautiful artwork, as always.
