Tower of Treasure, page 8

Sometimes looking at old work is a mixed blessing. There are things about this page I love (the "weight" of Dessa's landing in panel 5, Topper's body language in panels 3 and 4) and some things that make me cringe (it took me a while to work out what Dessa looks like in her head looks like a squashed grape in panels 1-3, and Fisk's appearance was still working itself out, too.)

It's always nice to look back and see what I've learned, but it's also tough knowing that people are out there looking at work that you know (now, at least) exactly how to fix.

Tower of Treasure, page 6

So this is the first page that wasn't part of the original pitch, and as such it was drawn nearly two years after the previous pages. I can tell, but hopefully other people can't.
