I am trying out a new enchanced lighting technique. It adds contrast to the pages and reads better overall. Let me know what you guys think of the change to style of the book?

This is a really really fun part for me as an artist and story teller. It when those nameless faces become people (so to speak) it makes the gravity of the Dwarves more poignant as well as they begin there great council.

Hey! I bought chapter 1 from you at the Vegas comic-con and wanted to say it is awesome and I'm enjoying the progress. Dwarfs on mammoths are badass. I'm looking forward to seeing how the story unfolds. Awesome art work as well.

After a long Hiatus, I am back on the Mountain. This summer has been amazing. My wife and I bought a brand new home. One day (when we get the basement finsihed) I will have my own office/studio in it. I also sold over 250 copies of Strong Mountain, CHapter 1 at various comic cons. I need to compile all of the free headsketches I had in the covers and submit them here so everyone can see the many many characters and villains/monsters that were drawn up for people.
The big news: I have most all freelance work for the time being to work solely on Strong Mountain. Its time to kick this thing into overdrive. I can't wait to tell you more and unveil the great war to come in SM. Thanks for your patience everyone, see you soon.

Thanks Lemn, hang with me for a few more pages we are about to turn the fire up at the end of this chapter!

End Chapter 1
So this was the added 3 pages to the end of Chapter 1. We went from 16 up to 19, these added pages help to shed a bit more light on the situation, to set the stage with what is at stake and begin to show us a bit more of whats underneath Baelyg. Chapter 2 is coming up real soon.

P.S: The blue dwarven figure on the left of panel 1 is a nod to my favorite board game when I was a boy; Hero Quest.

Zander and Baelyg continue to debate the elf girl's future...
January 30th, 2019
With grief of loss still so near, the Dwarves awaken again to find the elf girl singing to the stars. Baelyg and Zander begin to argue of what is to be done with her?

This is a little amendment/addition to the end of Chapter 1. Just a quick update to all the SM fans (all 21 of you): Chapter 2 is underway. My plan is add this page plus 2 more to the end of Chapter 1. Chapter 2 is looking like 20+ pages from my layout thus far, I may add to or take away from that as we go.

Work work.

And with that ladies and gentlemen we have come to the close of chapter 1. Three warband's went into that mountainous canyon on that fateful night (Dwarves, Elves, and a Bestial Horde). None of them found what they were looking for.

But Baelyg did find something there, something very special. Kelai the daughter of the of the Syr'nath Exiles, and last survivor of a horrendous attack. Why did he take her, the daughter of an enemy? What will they do with her afterwards? What will the Dwarven Council say in that regard? All of these answers will be unraveled, tune next time to STRONG MOUNTAIN!!

This is a great comic! I'm glad I got to meet you at comic con! This is so interesting so far, and I love you're style!

Updated Page 2: It was a retrograde from the previously illustration. This is to harmonize the style for consistency. It stings a little to set that aside, but it had to be done.

**Learning Curve**
<Please be advised> 10/17/2018

Extensive rework has been done after receiving some tough critique on the pages thus far. They hurt, it was a bit demoralizing. But I knew these criticisms were correct. So I bit my lip and reworked the pages again.

The new version includes the following changes over the previous version.4
-increase font size and bubble spacing
-New "Bending Monochrome" color gamut, Blue can bend into Blue-Green and Blue-Violet, all grays appear warm via simultaneous contrast.
-Trimmed dialogue, quicker and to the point
-Deeper contrast blending with the Bending Monochrome above, (allowed better lighting also).
-richer saturation than last version
-The bar is set, design locked in (it was a beast)
-better placement on SFX and word bubbles (mostly :D)

Stay tuned over the next week, I will be updating a lot! And also thank you for being patient as I am learning some tough but great lessons.

Strong Mountain is coming!
