Fablehaven Book 3 of 5: Grip of the Shadow Plague

Here is book number 3 in the Fablehaven series.

Seth encounters the demon Graulus. I thought it would be fun to have Seth's hair blown back by Graulus's roar.

Hugo as the main focal point taking out dark centaurs easily.

The Shadowman lurks behind the kids.

Dark creatures vs. light creatures battle scene. This was the selected sketch, though the final art was streamlined down to just the kids on the back of the centaur plus a of couple dark satyrs. 

Poor Hugo, he gets denied again. The final art:


  1. The final looks great. The sky are phenomenal.
    Amazing sketches! Hugo can't seem to catch a break.
    i'd love to do a book cover illustration.... any tips about consider when designing a book cover? :)

  2. Love seeing the different sketches. It's always fascinating to see the sketches that don't get through. Great work!
