A friend of mine lent me her copy of Sabriel by Garth Nix because she though I might like it. BOY was she right! It's the story of an 18 year old necromancer and her sundry adventures though a world where the dead walk the earth....whats not to like? And what can I say I am SUCH a sucker for well written strong Female characters..yum yum yum!

Sabriel and her pal Mogget. Mogget I haven't quite gotten down yet. He's a spirit of "Free Magic" trapped in cat form, so in my head I kinda of picture him as a white cat, but his "fur" is always moving and shifting and floating about like wind or flame...he kind of reminds me of a chinese dragon for some reason so I want to incorporate that swirling and twisting nature into his design....

Awesome drawings!!!

Then again, I love ALL of your art - I am SO putting you on my watch!!

I love how you did Mogget - he's one of my fav characters (besides the Disreputable Dog - have you read Lirael and Abhorsen yet?!?).

I agree abou strong female characters - they kick butt!! xD

This is awesome. I love your cartoony take on them both, and the amazing amount of expression you were able to imbue Mogget with.

I like how you depicted Mogget. He looks like he's really wild (a good way to depict that he's a Free Magic creature). That and he looks so mischievious. ^.~

Oh, man. I LOVE the Abhorsen Trilogy. I'm totally psyched because they're doing a Sabriel graphic novel, apparently!
This is totally gorgeous art! I love it!

OMG, you have no idea howI love the Abhorsen Trillogy! Garth Nix has got to be one of the most greatest fantasy authors in the past 10 years. He's actually my inspiration to write novels! I love all your Sabriel stuff. It's freaking awesome.

so, i keep on ranting about the awesomeness of the book, but what about the pictures you draw? haha, i love her different outfits. its also interesting way you portrayed mogget. i'm so simplistic i guess, that i just had him as a white cat with shortish fur, but the way you have him is also interesting (and makes more sense! plus its cooler :O) he looks so awesomely evil! my idea is more of a cooler disposition with an i-know-something-you-don't-know smirk on his face...boredom is also part of his facial expression in my idea...not that it matters ^^; this is just too much fun looking at everything...haha ^^

Your drawings inspired me to read the series, which was fantastic! So thank you for sparking my interest.
I quite like the depiction of Mogget.
All your drawings are amazing though.

Whoa-I loved this book; read it in highschool and fell in love with it; really interesting how you depicted Sabriel here :D

You made me buy this book. =.=

OMGosh, I loved it, though! I was browsing Barnes and Noble, and I saw the book, and I was like, "Sabriel, Sabriel, where have I heard it before?" And then I remembered. "OMG It's from lberghol's site!" So's I bought it. Yay for me. =P

I kinda imagined her shorter, somehow. O.o And Mogget was more thin and slinky, too.

Mogget rules!

Thank you for mentioning this book! Seriously, if you hadn't, I may never had read it and I would have continued life unaware of its wonderfulness. A sad and sorry state if you ask me...

Your Sabriel and Mogget are just fantastic! I believe you captured both of them splendedly.
