Page 687!

Drawing the stone elemental this way takes a bit more time than the old form did.  I was able to cheat a bit in the first panel because with him being “further away” I didn’t have to go into all the detail, but yeah…. I kind of kicked myself in the ass by designing his armor to be much more ‘rocky’ than his previous incarnation.

That being said, I’m happy with the page.  I do love a good stare down!

Just another couple of days until Boston Comic-Con.  As I’ve mentioned, I’ll be in the Artist Alley at table D923.  I’ll have AF manga & buttons, and I’ll also be doing sketch cards and commissions and all that jazz.

Once again I didn’t write down what I was listening to while doing this page, but it was probably the Brian Michael Bendis interview on Let’s Talk Comics because that was a pretty long interview.
