I apologize for all the quiet over the last week or so. Matt and I are heading up to Maine next week, so I'm rushing to get this week and next week's pages completed before we leave. Four more to go!
I'm really pleased with how this spread and the previous one turned out. My thought behind these pages... In the comic, the ability to use very powerful magic can lead one to either create or destroy. Anger and destruction is easy, but it ends in loneliness and desolation. Love and creation is hard. Yet, if you have the strength to weather the ups and downs, it results in a deeper connection to others and, to yourself.
As to why Moraine's nude in the previous spread, I wanted to give the impression of insanity, primal power, and vulnerability. Nudity can be used for more than just sexuality. What's that? No one's ever told you that before? Well now you know.
And knowing is half the battle!
