So, as I previously mentioned, I got a little sidetracked from my “Origin” comic.  I had an idea for a “swamp elder” and just had to go for it.  See below for thumbnails, sketches, studies and at last…the “final” piece. There is a lot of fine-tuning to be done with it as well plenty of stuff that just plain isn’t finished yet.  I need a break, though, before I dive back in.  I’m also hoping to get a critique on it, so if I do, I’m sure lots of things will need to be changed!
