On Tolerance
You'll have to stick with me for a bit, but I'll begin with a jarring statement to most readers: it seems to me that the Catholic Church is really the most tolerant of anyone or anything.
This is because the Catholic Church has rightfully questioned everything and accepted what it must. It is derived from the fact that we see creation as good and, as such, there is nothing that exists separated from goodness—no matter how hopeless. We are tolerant precisely because we call things evil and because we call things good. These are like the actions of a wise gardener who prunes leaves and branches, allowing the good to grow properly and the bad to fall lifelessly.
Indeed, the history and hagiographies [lives of the saints] of the Church attest to this attitude. St. Martin of Tours, though he had the mighty pine tree cut he erected an altar in its place. He removed the worship of something false with the worship of something true—he did not remove worship.
St. Catherine of S

Hey, guys, sorry about the lack of activity. January has not been kind, but things should be back to normal, hopefully.

Page 6 is up. I’ve also gone back and color-corrected the other pages so that it’s more uniform. I will be replacing the current pages with the new ones, so keep an eye out for that.

Thanks for the wait!


I like having the character dead-center, as it gives it a sense of power. The broken visor is a nice touch.
The pose lacks fluidity, but the message is imposing.
Your main lighting seems like it's coming from the top left, but it appears to get lost in certain spots, like the forearms, in particular.
The light coming from the sword is a very nice touch, but as it stands, it looks more like a nebulous glow floating in front of the character, as it doesn't seem to follow the shapes of the figure, or the attire. I'd recommend using a hard brush to blend in the colors, instead of using a soft brush, as it makes the picture look blurry and lose some of the impact.
