Amid shallow graves
We speak of ourselves and death
Never knowing life

This page is really weird to me looking back. Nothing about it is particularly off but it does show me that there’s a huge amount of art evolution in the next couple of weeks since I started drawing Gekido. He looks really, really different here compared to how I draw him in the 2nd Tale… His kimono is only around his waste right here but later on it’s much more of a flowing robe trailing all around his legs. Also his legwarmer things are super long in this page when later they are more like average boot sized. Not to mention I was still learning the physics of how the sword in his gut worked, so it looks like it slides around between the panels here.

Regardless this is a good page despite how far I’ve come in just a few short weeks.
