Have you ever noticed how most partings that include a line like "we'll talk when I see you next" or something not-quite-specific-enough-to-arouse-suspicion like "keep your eye on the ball" "man, I always keep both eyes open!" usually doom any chance at a happy reunion later? "Dude where's your eye?!" "A ball got me!" etc. I don't think Xerxes is technically going to come back in one piece guys. I hope it's just a fingernail or a tooth though, if I'm right. Maybe he just gets a haircut!

Aaaand your backgrounds continue to be awesome. What's your secret? Photo references? Looking at other art? Sheer imagination? How do you come across these landscape ideas?

@melaredblu I have a ton of pictures for landscape inspiration. I don't look at anything while I'm painting though, unless I want a specific color scheme (I don't color pick, that's cheating) or want to include a certain texture (rocks, tree bark, types of moss etc.)
A secret: observe how people choose to stylize things like foliage and grass. It all comes down to basic shapes. Suggestion is a powerful thing in art and you shouldn't have to paint every leaf to tell readers it's a tree.
short answer: imagination and lots of inspiration in the form of various landscape photos / concept art

This would make a great "Tales of.." like game. I would play it and replay it. The story is great thus far, I'll be keeping up with it.

As everyone else is saying, beautiful background. Looks like they're marching onwards into a Studio Ghibli film.

Are they off to see the wizard,
the wonderful wizard of Oz?
I hear he is a whiz of a wiz,
if ever a wiz there wuz.

@andy p. I watched Wizard of Oz like 3-4 times while writing Chapter 1 and 2! This must have been left over from that :>
