I’m very happy with this page. I can’t tell if I learned something new and actually got better, or if I just got everything right for once out of dumb luck.

I tried to simplify the coloring of my backgrounds–I’m reading Bad Machinery, which produces wonderfully evocative but simple backgrounds–and I think the results are good in panels 5 and 7. Esgavi actually looks like a nice place, rather than a crummy collection of stock sci-fi towers and parapets. And I like the Knight of Many Faces. Do you think I should do something more with him? He was fun to draw.
