In the printed version of this book, there’s a mistake *gasp*! The draugr is pointing with his right hand – which, in THIS online version, has fingers that have been sliced down. I think when I originally drew this I had him facing the other way. I then flipped the image, and forgot to cut off some digits! I fixed that for this image, but if you own a printed copy – well, now you have a super-special-collector’s-edition!

Once again, I love how in all the other versions, 1-3, the draugr is out there explaining why he just wants IN and WHY can’t the DOOR be open and PLEASE gimmie a break! But here? Here, he doesn’t have to say any more than those three words. We can see how defeated he is. We can sense his sadness.
