Latest Commission - Cover Selangkah Ke Alam Jin

My Early Sketch For The Cover

Here is the sketch of my latest book cover commission job. It's might not quite right with all the proportions. I hadn't found the time to draw for a long while so i guess this is the break-in sketch.
If everything go smooth and my editor is happy with this one, i would straightly proceed to the next step which is the coloring part,soon!

Updated ( May 22, 2010 )

The final drawing will be add to a new post later. I would try to get it posted  in the original cover once it get published. Just wait for my updates and thanks for watching mates.
