I have commenced work on a four page comic entitled Beowulf. It's ten after one in the morning, and a steady stream of The Hives, The Arctic Monkeys, and The Hold Steady have kept me going as well as a band I only recently discovered called Dragonette. Good stuff.
Here's my setup, with the penciled, inked, and colored pages.

Here's the first page. There's a backstory behind this idea. I'll explain it once all four pages are finished.

That's the second page. I actually did research for this work. Sparrows do actually kill bluebirds and raid their nests. Depressing. The tree limbs are inspired by Japanese artists; I reference my Art of Edo Japan textbook for examples.

There are two pages left in this series. What fun!
