For awhile I've had the idea in the back of my head that I wanted to do a one-page comic, which seemed a very do-able length. What kind of story could I tell in only one page, though? I thought about it for a few weeks, looking for something interesting but concise.
Then one day while I was sketching, I thought, I'll make a comic about a dragon. A lonely dragon. Why was he lonely?
This was my answer.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. There are couple little things I see on it that aren't perfect, but I'm not even sure how to fix them at this point (I've been looking at it too long). So, its finished--not perfect, but It is what it is and I am satisfied.
The intention was to have it look like it was made entirely as a linocut made with 4 color layers: Black (well, dark purple), gold, grey-green, and red. As I made it it kept reminding me really strongly of the comic Digger by Ursula Vernon, though I did not specifically intend to emulate her style. I don't know much about her process, but I think it was probably something similar to what I used here.
