Page 16 Book 2: Speaking Stones
A bit of a skip ahead, but not far (And I fully intend to flesh the skip out in the published version). Igon is now negotiating for aid with the Erenatl council.
Originally I considered having nine counsellors, rather than the seven shown here, but it proved too tricky to fit nine into a frame without reducing the size massively.
Four unique Grisgol still look pretty cool though. I tried to think of individual personalities when I made them.
For example the far right (viewer’s) side Grisgol is a conservative counsellor, but she loves high-performance things, so she spotted the classic-model Grisgol shell and just “had” to have it.
Greatwise’s matching paint scratches are kind funny to me, since they look like fuzzy eyebrows
They’re the result of his head being whacked back and forth in combat (the eyebrows) and grabbed on both sides (the triangular peels)
