Sorry for the delay. I resisted the temptation to put up the tentative sketch art for Toy Wars for several weeks wanting only to put up the final product, BUT Tony Foti got me the tentative sketch for An Eighty Percent Solution and I couldn’t resist any longer.
I’ve added each sketch to its book description page and soon will add each to the scrolling picture on the home page. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I do.
Some things to note. Remember that these are to wrap around the cover, so only the right hand portion will be on the front of the book. Obviously there is a great deal of detail that will come with the final pieces such as tattoo’s on Sonya’s exposed skin and at least one battle scar on our teddy hero Don on the front cover of Toy Wars (not to mention hands). The Toy Wars final is nearing completion and will be posted as soon as I receive and approve it.
I really can’t recommend Tony Foti enough. He is a professional in every sense of the word. He has worked from book text in one case and a description from me in the other. He has been open to changes, been able to discuss the pros and cons of making changes. If you have any custom art that you are pursuing I highly encourage you to at least discuss your plans with Tony.
