A few weeks back I was rumbling about monotonous drawings that were slowing me down. this page shows what I was fighting. Men in columns pulling ropes. Necessary for the story but not the most facinating thing to draw... again and again...
The top panels were some of the more unpleasent I have had to draw. Poor Sharl is put to use moving the horse carcases as part of the punishment detail. Fortunately his uniform shirt is already ruined.
Panel 3 is one of the better perspective pictures I have done as are the last 2. I stil need to work on my horses though. The gun is indeed as large as it looks. the inspiration for this chapter was the story of an infantry column moving a huge field gun in the Battle of First Manassas. I got the dimentions the major rattled off in the middle right column straight from my source. that was a big gun.
I was surprised to find out that the company is keeping me in Houston until Monday next week. As I thought I was going back on Friday (And would have the weekend to prep the next comic) I only brought 3 weeks of comics for me to be able to update. Consequently, next week will be late. Sorry for the inconvenience. I will get the thing up as soon as I can.
Well time for bed. Let me know what you are thinking of the recent pages. the forum has been failrly dead.
