I'm humbled to be a Twart, especially after seeing the great contributions from the artists here. Thanks for the invite, Chris! Thanks to Mitches Breitweiser and Gerads for their encouragement.
About my own contribution: I've never inked digitally before, and I likely won't for future Twarts- not until I get the hang of it. I'm posting my preliminary sketches since they possess a quality that the digital final is lacking. I aim to redeem myself next week (if the Twarts will keep me around). Thanks to all!
