It's weird how some characters morph and evolve right on the page as you draw them. Looking back at just these 5 pages I can see where the Curator changes a little here and there. I think that's because he only has/had an amorphous nature in my mind. Hurke, on the other hand, seemed pretty clear from the start. Even still I guess you can see him changing a little bit with each page.
Don't you love that part of the relationship between artist and creation? Those teasing, fleeting, romantic early moments?
