Deviously Deviant by SquirrelShaver Deviously Deviant by SquirrelShaver
The fastest cover I've ever had to do. This was literally done in one evening. I forget why, but my editor contacted me one afternoon and said we needed a cover by the next morning. He gave me an idea and from layout approval to finished pencils was about... 4 hours. haha.

Cover pencils to "Grimm Myths & Legends" #2

Pencils: Mike DeBalfo (Me)

It ain't a cowgirl, but the fantasy writer in me likes it a lot! Sexy and dangerous at the same time. Everyone's favorite combination!
