Abbath and Avelyn take an amble around the Hive to deliver some exposition...ummm, I mean to have a deep and heartfelt conversation. Melding character development with exposition is the key to good writing, I've come to find - and on some pages it works better than on others. Not sure about this one - it was one of those where you have one idea while you're drawing and then find it doesn't quite work when you come to writing the dialogue.

The layout came out quite well, I think. I like the way the tree (named after a Mike Oldfield album, no less!) crosses with the direction of the rocks in the background, creating a big 'X' - or some sort of helix.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

I think it was absolutely brilliant how you led the characters around the tree like that! Great job!

Thanks, Chris-Tar! Pages like this are more of a headache to plan out, but are great fun to actually draw!

I said this on the forum already, but I am stunned at how amazing this page looks. The individual panels all blending together ... I love it.

Excellent picture composition, if a little hard to follow in sequence at first glance.

Thanks - but yeah, it's a tricky one. As I mention in the author comment, it didn't end up quite as I planned - I think I need to think about having the dialogue mapped out before I draw the page ;).
