Great vertical movement on this page. Very nice!

Thanks! I tried to get the same "cinematic" effect on page 2 and 4 as well but was only able to pull it off on this one. Well, better late than never. This page wasn't even in my original script but then again neither was the splash page and now they are my two favorite pages in the 6 page story.

Was Ruess found wearing a pair of moccasins?

This is news to me but thanks for providing me with the link. Although the story of Everett Ruess is remarkable in it's amazing similarity to that of The Outrider's there are some very distinct differences.
Ruess vanished in 1934 into the Utah wilderness and "Walk In Beauty" takes place in 1866 in what was then the Arizona Territory. However, The Navajo Nation does include both northeast Arizona and southeastern Utah as well as the southwest corner of Colorado and northwestern New Mexico. So, it is entirely possible that Ruess may have met up with the octogenarian Outrider and that they swapped stories around a campfire. The Outrider may have even saw fit to give the artist a well worn pair of moccasins.

I did not mean to imply that you took the story from Ruess, but thought it was fun to see the similarities. However, the idea of Ruess meeting up with the Outrider in the dessert would make a good comic. :)

I never thought you were implying or inferring I'd used Ruess's story as a template for my own. In fact, nothing was further from my mind. I was just as amazed by the similarities as you were myself and am very happy that you shared the article with me.. I was just trying to show a logical way that Ruess could actually have been found wearing a pair of moccasins and was not being indignant. Sorry. if I seemed overly defensive but don't worry I am not that "sensitive" of an "artiste."
