Look Ma - no words!
This guy right here had a brief appearance in episode 5 on the orbiter (when it was struck by the Golem's core, and the ape died). If you look at ep. 5's cover, you can see I'd intended for this guy to play a bigger role - but in the end the episode was stuffed as it was. And I thought he deserved a bit more... space (as in, the steppes of Africa :P) and a thorough exposition.
And again, I've never drawn the steppes of Africa before, and yet again I didn't use any reference. I'm still not quite sure if that's artistic strength or weakness... it's better in the way that I can show you "the content of my mind" rather than the real landscape, but it's worse in the way that I might make stupid errors in portraying this, or portray it in an unrecognizable way.
TKGB_Cocker: Yes! :P Thanks... I also *tried* answering your question on the previous page BTW.
