Crucible: Beloc of Quelth – Colour Notes

Here’s another of Smuzz’ Colour Guides for one of the main ‘Crucible’ characters. The amount of work he’s putting into these is, frankly, a bit gob-smacking – and his colouring notes for pages of the strip are often so thought-provoking I want to run off and write up some of the ideas they suggest.

This is Beloc. He does magic. As a learner, he’s not that good at it…
