Behold, the first of Empowered’s “illustration-only” title pages, a tribute of sorts to the similar approach used for the chapter breaks in collected manga volumes. The illo was drawn on linen-finish cardstock, hence the faint textile pattern you may (just) be able to perceive in the pencilled gray tones. I started using linen-finish paper for convention sketches back in the 90s because, well, the surface pattern made my hastily scrawled drawings somehow look a tad classier and noticeably less dashed-off—or so I thought at the time. (Your Mileage May Vary, of course.)
