Old sketches

Here are some work in progress value and color sketches that I did for some book covers.  Some of these went a little too far than they should have and sometimes they never get finished.


This was an early Juniper Berry cover.  I really like this painting but I think the final version turned out better.


This was another angle I was exploring for Word After Word After Word.


This was a color sketch concept for Unlocking the Spell.


This was for a mermaid book that never went past this stage.
