Here’s the first sketch I did of Leonard. No, here’s the first sketch of Leo that I kept. This is coloured pencils with a bit of wet brush blending. It’s a technique that let’s me get a good idea of what something is going to look like without a lot of graphite work (which I… Continue reading Leonard Smith
This is the first character sketch that John Bratus turned in for Pride. A little updating of the uniform, and the character was good to go. This is the sketch that got approved. John works in digital, and we will be posting more of his work flow in future pages.
This is Spelledeg’s version of the same character, done in all digital medium. It’s affected the way I see the character, and it’s going to affect the way I write her from now on. This is an example of how an artist can totally change a character just by drawing her differently than the writer… Continue reading Valerie Hawker – Spelledeg’s Version
This is the sketch for Melony Hawker’s gun in the Law of the Jungle. It’s impied that this model is what she has been asking for. This was done with coloured pencil, technical pens, and a little watercolour pencil. I have no idea what Spelledeg is going to have this looking like when we get… Continue reading The Colby

This one, and the one previous are John’s digital sketches of the two main female characters for Pride. Both of them are very distinct, but still showing his style off nicely. We’ve seen the first page of Pride with Susan, but we’re going to have to wait a few pages to see Sava. … Continue reading Savannah Meyers – John Bratus
This is a sneak preview of what the Hybrids might look like when they appear in The Law of the Jungle. Spelledeg was playing around with the anatomy especially on leg lengths and shoulder/hip joints. Eagle (She does wonderful work)
This is one of mine. It’s based on the Broomhandle Mauser with a number of changes. The original came out in 1896, but this version came out in 1996 on NO-Earth. Mockingbird in The Shadow War carries one, and he gets to use it for all sorts of fun things. Keep reading to see… Continue reading Steinman M96 – Eagle
This is Jim Walsh, who readers of The Law of the Jungle won’t meet until page 8, but I figured you would appreciate a little sneak peek at him here. Spelledeg did a good job of capturing him and his personality in the sketches.
