Armor Close-up w/ Amulet Concept

© 2011 S. R. Ford. Ink and colored pencil. This design, drawn as a cover for the author's day planner, was a predecessor to the full armor concept design. The right-hand cover reflects the front of the armor, with the concept amulet integrated in, and the left-hand cover reflects the back of the armor. The symbol on the bottom was an original idea for Rokai's front paw print. It, too, was later changed before being written into the book.
