I apologize if the inks on this page are a bit shaky; my computer is dying a slow, hideous death–I think it has cholera–and my Photoshop file got corrupted during a crash just as I finished my “pencil” layer. Instead of inking over a “pencil” layer, I inked in the raw, using every cheap trick I’ve learned in order to finish the page on time. That’s why the background is only at 50% transparency: it looked a bit rough due to some badly-eyeballed, very rushed perspective work.

Anyway, that’s chapter 4, which was lots of fun. Next chapter: dragons, necromancy, astral journeys, politics, metaphysics, and human sacrifice!
