Here is the cover for Across Thin Ice, Book One of the Nordguard graphic novel trilogy.

I can't believe I'm typing this, but...As of posting this, there's only 7 signed copies of the hardcover edition still available for pre-order! :]
(More info on the pre-order here!)

==Scratch that, looks like all the hardcover preorders have been sold!==

Pre-orders will ship July 1st, or you can pick it up at AnthroCon. There will also be 200 or so hardcover copies, which are not part of the pre-orders, that will be available at Anthrocon, and ComicCon, while supplies last. Those will be sold first come, first serve, so if you miss out on the hardcover pre-orders and are attending AC, you still stand a good chance of getting one! (There will be plenty of softcover copies, this is just if you're interested in getting one of the first-edition hardcovers.)

And, last reminder, the softcover copies for $19.95 will first debut at AnthroCon, and go for sale online July 1st 2011, from Sofawolf Press's site, here! || Nordguard on Blogspot || Nordguard on LJ || @nordguard on Twitter

Good sketch!! The charaters are so cool and realistic that they have almost a human look...But what I like so much is the background: the mountains covered with snow and the grey clouds. Brrrrr!!! I'M SOOO COLD!!

I love your style, you blend the realistic animal head to the humanoid body so well.

The painting is very well done. The artist knows how to art that's for sure :P but the artist must also be creative in the design... I hate it when people just take an animal head and paste it on a human body and add fur. Why not mix elements of each species together and evenly. Like a human face mixed with a wolf head or a human body on all fours... I think james cameron did this very well in Avatar with the Navi design.

this type of art always amazes me,the ideas in the mind brought into reality resulting in the image of the mind as if your looking inside your mind and actually seeing something that doesnt exist brought into the depths of reality.Beautiful art.

Okay, with acrylic...*faints* I´m just learning to draw with them so I hope would be able to draw such a beautiful piece like that as well one day. :)
A very, very great piece of art, the details are incredible and I find something new every time I look at it again. The lightning situation fit very well and together with their expressions it makes
it look very enthralling, just like there´s something going to happen very soon.
Also I took a quick look at some of the books´ pages since I´m kinda busy right now, but I really liked what I saw and will definitely come back to find out more about it! (:
