Myst: The Book of Atrus Storyboards based on Japanese Text

Sometime in 2007 I was living in Japan and ordered a used copy of "Myst: The Book of Atrus" in Japanese on Amazon. BoA is my favorite book of all time and I'm studying Japanese, so it was very exciting to finally get my hands on it.

At some point, I decided to make a Japanese style manga comic book using one scene from the Myst book. I never finished the project, but I was recently preparing my portfolio and saw the storyboards I did for it.  I liked them, so I'm posting them here.

The scene is where Gehn is telling Atrus that his grandmother is to blame for the fall of D'ni. Gehn judges Anna harshly and Atrus feels confused and angry. Finally, Atrus stands by what he considers true, making Gehn very mad.

Here's the Japanese text for that scene, in case anyone's interested:

Finally, here are some drawings of Atrus (and co.) that I collected as I was preparing my portfolio:
