Book Ten, Page Seven

Your style is distinctive, yet the contrast of this page to Book Seven, Page Three is striking... the thin lines here which add a delicacy to the whole drawing. (Love that face coming out of the right border.)

Yeah, I'm almost happy with this page as is - it's pretty close to the Rackhamesque/J W Waterhouse/pre-Raph look I wanted. I hear you loud and with the shift - some of it's to do with the paper size I'm working with - itsy A4, on account of needing to work at the kitchen table with the spillage that is life with two kids all around me. Partly it's a time thing though - when I'm rushing the page is simply crap - hence the need for a slow go-over and re-draw for a number of pages. The face is from the bathysphere on earlier pages - repeat, repeat, repeat!

I actually clicked on this page to say much the same as "Annotated Margins", but will not repeat it.

Thanks you, Dave. I'm currently trying to get more line variation and a similar aesthetic into some of the less defined pages as I re-draft Escape Behaviours.
