Turns out Xisve'ki is not amused by Jakitza's antics... and prepares to turn the tables once more!
It's been a while since I depicted Xisve'ki so much in a single page, and not in a way that I could really use the new methods I've picked up for art, so it was fun to have him in several angles, trying to coax expressions from his undead, rotting, non-human skull. And normally, hands are my nightmare, but Xisve'ki's hands are a lot of fun to do, particularly because I don't have to make an effort for them to look remotely human.
Now, for the so-so news, I've picked up a medium freelance gig that might take up more time this week. It certainly took some from the last that I had to really thunder through this page all day on Sunday. I'll make an effort to balance my time, but don't be surprised if next page is late.
