Cover: Into the Orclands

helm-8-00.jpg

So… I wasn’t able to build as much of a buffer as I wanted (only the first 5 pages, not included the cover) of Chapter 8 is fully complete; however, I didn’t want to wait much longer to begin posting again. The good news is pages 6-8 are fully colored (you can check them out on Patreon now) and just need to be lettered. And, as always, if you want to read way ahead… the entire script for Chapter 8: Into the Orclands is available for download on Patreon (along with tons of other in-progress art, concepts, and more).

Please leave any comments or questions you have about the story so far and I’ll try my best to answer. :)
