This picture is about 5 years old, from an early incarnation of my Spire story, back when it was going to be more fantasy. I started working with the markers for the first time since college, and found that the cheap sketchbook was bleeding alot on to the pages underneath. Since I was using a very limited palette for thise pics I found that I could use the bleed to create some very interesting natural textures within the drawings. There is a lot of uncertainty in this pic, like much of Spire. Is he a thief, or some kind of lawman? Is he waiting to go in or waiting for someone to come out?
