I wanted to show the progression of sketching I did for the pushing scene in chapter one. Sarah from "Rain on the Roof" suggested that instead of Byron backing away he push Oisin away at the same time feeling his chest in a mix of emotions. Now this is a very good idea (Thanks Sarah) but getting it right was harder than I thought and I had to redraw it several times. I think I got it right.
I kept drawing the opening of chapter two as an establishing shot of the tower which has been, well, already established, so yesterday I got the idea to re introduce the characters instead. Here are some images from the childlike Byron fascinated by a snail only to see it get eaten by Tavius' crow. Shocked and sad he growls at the crow, but since no one saw this exchange they just think he's a crazy wolf growling at nothing and yell at him. Byron's life in the tower is never easy. I chose a snail because I'm trying to add more spirals to the story. Not sure where that is going.
