It looks pretty hard to draw, to the educated eye. Fucking everything is hard to draw. I'm wasting my life! I really like the flame on that torch. Extremely (sp?) animated. The pacing in this strip is well done, also. Being picky here (you're forcing me to be by having such good work), I don't really like the charcoal looking borders when compared to the finer cleanliness of the inner linework. They're too conflicting stylistically, I think. But overall, really solid work.
actualy, i agree with you about those borders whole hartedly. as soon as i got them down on the paper i knew they looked funny but i couldent go back. the graphite i used was too soft adn wouldent erase.
