On 2-ply, 500 series, cold press Strathmore Bristol. 10x15.5 inch image area on 11x17inch paper.


Before writing and drawing the story I did a few inspirational drawings just to get used to the characters again. I based the final cover on this one.


I redid the composition to accommodate the logos at the top and added Jei in the background. The characters were much too big on the preliminary drawing, so I reduced their size to add more breathing space.

Drawn with .5mm HB mechanical pencil.


Inked with two Rotring ArtPens. A older, broken in pen for the foreground characters and a newer, more rigid pen for the background.


Blacks and textures added, and finished.
