I'm in such a good mood today, even though I only slept 2.5 hours last night (and that because I didn't have the stamina for a proper all-nighter) and haven't eaten for a long time. Must be the sunshine and the fact that I learned I have a whole week to finish my English paper. Feels so good.
So what's in it for you are (hugely blown up) griffin comic thumbnails! Hooray!
This is for my restart - especially if we end up taking our stuff separately to Comic-Con, I'd rather my story start from the beginning than be a vignette from the middle of the story. What was I thinking?
Also, to put all the fire stuff in the beginning in context, this is the main character's first day as an apprentice, and his master spends the first page blacksmithing in high-contrast firelight. Then he goes flying and runs into a buddy in the air.
