page-9-lineTheres a complexity that comes with making a comic page. Composition, how composition aids with story telling. The hardest I think is communicating emotion through facial expression, and body language. This just one panel from the whole page. But I wanted to give it a natural feel of a Mother tending to her daughter. Zoe has a mischievous look to her face. Its her eyes that communicate this most.

Little Zoe is tucked into bed, surrounded by her stuffed animals. Listening to her Moms stories about the Old ones no doubt. The first sentient life forms, the elders of the galaxy. They disappeared and no one knows where they went. They are worshiped far and wide for the strange technology they left behind. None more strange than the jewel. Embedded in Zoe’s neck the source of her power.
