Page 08 Author's Notes: The last page of the prologue has arrive, and boy is it a doozy. The lighting changes, much in the way auroras do, as the magic of statue/angel man gets going. Our hooded friend is back to narrating, and seems to ... know Rory. Cornered, the angel is able to complete his task, which involves a transformation that ultimately leaves Rory as a statue. And thus, Rory has entered the Infinite Spiral. Not to mention, hooded man reveals his face. Hmm ...

Cue the quote for the next page/Chapter One opener: "Silence denote and sanctity enforce thee-- Passenger of Infinity"--Emily Dickinson.

World Notes/Mythology: In Angel lore, the angel Lailah touches souls just under the nose before they are born, erasing their memories of life before birth and leaving the philtrum (indentation below the nose). Although Rory is not going to lose her memories of home (didn't want to alarm anyone), the kind of metamorphosis or birth metaphor is here.

Infinite Spiral: Prologue: Aurora:
Rory (Aurora) Perkins is just a normal girl spending the waning days of summer with her grandparents in the country. When she sets out to catch fireflies one evening, little does she know her curiosity will cause her to leave her own world behind forever, journeying into the Infinite Spiral of realities.

Judging from the look on her face and her commentary to go with it, she seems really snarky and unamused, bored even, but I don't think that's actually the case...right?

No, but I had an awful time with my toolset at the point of drawing this page, so it is no surprising the drawing and expression is simply wrong. And it is. You should see far more white in her eyes in the least before she is "frozen" and her eyebrows got smoothed to the point of pure boredom.

(Chants to herself: I will not redraw old pages, must continue forward ...)
I am...speechless. Wow a really stunning page

I really appreciate that. When I started the Prologue I had two main goals: work on lighting and work on backgrounds. Comments like this remind me of how much I learned!
To quote Mr. Bill Ohhhhhhh Noooooooooooo!

Great page! Curious to see what happens next!
WHAT!!!!!! She..She just turned stone!!!! You weren't kiding when you said the last prologue page would leave us with more questions were you.

I figured out who that creepy angel guy reminds me of! He looks ike a cross between Jean Luc Picard and the 9th Doctor.

When the statue touches her under the nose or whatever, she looks bored, or not amused, something other than scared. Is she supposed to be scared at this point, cuz I'm really just guessing that was the intended emotion.

I was going for sad, gave up, hopeless. She'd burned out all her scared energy running into the dead end. Maybe I can make her more teary eyed--though, she doesn't seem the crying type ... hrrrm ...

That is a crazy combo, ahahaha. I kept trying not to make him look like September (one of the Observers from Fringe).
Oh OK I see, yeah she doesn't look defeated to me, she looks a bit bored, sorry. I think you should put some tears in her eyes, but not like rolling down her face, since you said she's not a crying type of person, but hey it's your comic, so do whatever you want :D

Well I don't think he looks like this September guy, but I really don't know what he looks like, so all I see is Picard and Eccleston combined, which isn't that bad a combo ;)

Hahaha. It helps that September always wears a fedora. Picard and Eccleston, hmm ...
Fedoras are cool :D. The 4th Doc wears a fedora :D

is that a good hmmm?
