Oak Trees and Dragon Scales
Here are some more chapter sketches. The first is the rough pencil drawing for chapter seventeen, Dueling with Dragons. In this chapter, Jahrra is challenged by her then nemesis Jaax, a Tanaan dragon. Jahrra manages to dislodge a scale from one of his toes, thus we have the image of a dragon's scale resting in the grass.
The second image is just another gnarled oak tree. It is supposed to reflect the original cover, where a similar tree is featured with the green hooded stranger leaning against it. When I add color to this one, I'm not sure if I also want to include the light shining from within . . . but I probably will.
