Today's progress on a new approach to this scene.
It needs to match the lower portion of the shrine that I illustrated already, but I should be able to get more experimental with the upper portion.
Not sure if I shouldn't pull back even further with the shrine and vampire.
I'm not sure either if I should make a space for Prisoner.
Standard I'll keep closer to the front having her react to the screams of Orphan somewhere above.
The scene also illustrates a bit of the power struggle between Vampire and Prisoner in that Vampire winds up having to sometimes follow Standards lead when the group is at risk. Despite her will to finish her business there.
Standard could never directly challenge Vampires authority but if she just springs into action Vampire tends to have to follow along. Tho she cares nothing for the others she still has need of them and cant let them throw their lives away frivolously.
Is shaping up to a much stronger piece overall.
This is one of the benefits to doing all the pencil work first, that I can review the pencils well before jumping into the inking stage and can any ideas I feel are lacking. Where before I might have barreled forth without noticing glaring mistakes.
