Look, a new page! Some familiar faces here, and a new introduction (Iralbe the elder is seriously fun to draw).
Gee, I remember when I finished the first part of Wurr (over sixty pages ago) and was just about to change the scenery to doglands, I was seriously considering ditching the pencil shadings from the comic altogether. The shading is easily the most boring and usually most time consuming part of making a page, and I thought that as I was moving from shading empty rock-desert-thing to drawing lush forest would make the thing a lot more difficult.
It's not. Forests are actually pretty nice to draw, there are trees that offer rhythm and depth, and there are all sorts of shapes to play with, like rocks, fallen trees, pine trees and stuff, and bushes offer nice variation (and can obscure anything behind them). The Crater's desert is boring. And also harder to make look interesting. Found out that, for me, something vast and empty is surprisingly harder to draw, than a scenery with more things in it.
I thought it was an interesting observation.
