I had a lot of fun with this page, in spite of being one that made some of the more drastic changes during the editing process. There were many new elements that I have never drawn before. Trying to draw fractals by hand to form a flower, for example, to portray the loss of tangibility.
Also the fact of the curious boy and the slight hint moving toward adulthood as he touches the flower is something a friend of mine pointed out to me. While I was aiming for the boy's exploration and his sensibility of the environment of this scene, he feels very comfortable and curious for the new things. The design of the music box is familiar to the environment here, giving it a typical sense of repetition to what he experiences on this journey.

High resolution panels of this page, steps and more are available through my Patreon:
Haunter of Dreams leads you into the dreamscapes of a little boy who has to overcome his biggest fears and worries. In the format of a dreamtale, this story touches profound and surreal plains which only a dreamer might be able to experience.
People living on Yria have passed lores from generation to generation since the beginning of time.
It's a world where stories and tales are constantly created and bear a meaningful part in the life of every of its inhabitants.
The legend of the Crow Eater is one such lore, which has now become a separate adventure, called Haunter of Dreams.
While it plays on the same planet as Myre's story, it is not directly interwoven with the main graphic novel series of the "Chronicles of Yria".
