A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sketch I was working on for an important scene in Kendra Kandlestar 5. In that original sketch I had envisaged Kendra being attacked by a formidable foe I referred to as “Three Tusks.” While I haven’t dropped Kendra’s encounter with Three Tusks from the text, I decided that the Unger in this sketch looked far too much like Kendra’s old pal, Trooogul.
That’s when I realized that this character was Trooogul. So, when it came time to ink this illustration, I changed Three Tusks to Trooogul. Here’s the final result:
Why is Trooogul attacking his old comrade, you ask? Well, to find out the answer to that question, you’ll have to wait to read the book. And, yes. I’m working on it!
At least you should be happy that Trooogul is back to play a role in this final Kendra Kandlestar book. I’ve had a few complaints that his role in The Crack in Kazah was just too small!
