Superb! I haven't seen most of these in color until now. Very nice

Cover and undercovers of volume 22 in HQ:
Spoiler: vol. 22 cover and undercovers
When I saw the first undercover I was somewhat disappointed and was afraid that was it. But thankfully the second undercover was on the last page of the raw I've downloaded and it's awesome.
Ahh Warrior Hysteria....I hardly knew you.
But that black-haired girl.....is that Teresa?
Don't tell me this is a sign of things to come :O
Well, you never know I suppose...the majority of undercovers have been crazy to say the least.
Yagi just made my dream come true when he used Roxanne in his undercover, and Hysteria just look at her (she will make a beautiful colored version). As for the third one Shiek, I can say that Yagi does introduce characters like this to be seen in the future like Niedeen but when he does so, it happens in like 5-10 volumes later.

Wow, first time I've been impressed by Hysteria (warrior pic) since her introduction chapter. That is some good art. Not sure I care for the awakened pics... they look kinda :/ The Roxanne back page looks pretty good, but it doesn't feel new either just her classic evil smirk but with dead looking eye that contain non of her crazy (I don't know but i feel her eyes don't exactly follow me where ever I look at her from, some of the time I swear she's not looking crazy at me but at the ground or something... maybe it's just me and my lack of sleep atm). Oh well nice to see her in color anyhow.
@Shiek I'm not sure that is Teresa her face looks too normal and has no hint of a Teresa's trademark smile... her facial expressions are more like any normal girl. Plus her face is just too different and young looking, her hair isn't wavy either. In fact when I look at this I don't see any warrior at all, it's more like Yagi just drew his girlfriend or something and stuck her in the mag... oh well, if true no harm in that. Maybe, if true, she might inspire a new character down the road, we have gotten pics in the cover before that likely correlated to new characters/concepts for them, so maybe this time it's for an up coming one.
I guess I can believe that Ryus....after all, so many characters we've seen in the undercovers are not in the story at all - it seems to be a place for 'misc' artwork, or maybe concept art.
Whatever the case, that girl does notably look very japanese-ish (face, eyes), so maybe it really is his girlfriend
Hysteria though looks gorgeous in her warrior picture....and she's actually smiling

Yup, it's the first time we get to see her with a kind and gentle smile. For that other pic I'm amused by AB flesh being used like a pillow. A convenient form for taking a power nap.
Ah, Hysteria... She's truly one of the most beautiful ones out there, along with Teresa, Roxanne, Galatea, Flora, Anastasia and Audrey. Yagi certainly seems to have taken a liking to these three resurrected No. 1 warriors that he had created, particularly Hysteria. When in a group, she's always in front; even in that picture with the swords, hers was the nearest. Still, I find it confusing as to why he'd use an image of Hysteria for an undercover for a volume that she will not be appearing in. Perhaps he'll be making an ES featuring the events at Rockwell Hill?
On a side note, I wish Yagi had put in more effort for the Cassandra pic. It's quite lacking in details, and the image just feels... flat. Cassandra's awakened body actually exudes an eerie sense of beauty, but the image showed none of that.
Personally, for Cassie, I don't like the color chosen....Blue? I would have gone for a more realistic looking color choice on this one - I think it would have made her look better and more creepy at the same time.

Hey there, I'm new here, actually I did read through the claymore forum, but I've always been too lazy to register...Anyways, about volume 22, I really love the Cover, but I have to agree with the colour, blue doesn't really look good. Yagi should have chosen a different one to colour Cassandra, but oh well. The coloured picture of Roxanne looks great, always wanted to see her in colour!!! As for Hysteria, one word : beautiful

[tmod=Ancy]for easier access, I have updated the first post. Enjoy ^.^[/tmod]
Looks like Yagi got inspired by Alexander McQueen when drawing this undercover.
Wow, amazing find Klaha . Thanks for sharing.
Those are the Fragments of Silver 1, 2 and 3. The first FOS includes the chapter 1 (the first three pages colored), 12-24, summaries of the scenes, the first databook and the Clare san parody comics.
Here's uncompressed version of Fantasy's superb work:
I've also updated my post with batch of images from TSS.
Who are the characters that are one some of the pages with existing Claymore characters? Are they just random Drawings made by Yagi ? Or are they yet to be revealed characters?

One the coloured pic of Anastasia is that a scar on her stomach?
Wow, that is pretty impressive
I love the colors he uses
Those characters are just some random drawings by Yagi. Though, if you take a look at the girl from the undercover of vol. 12, she quite resembles Neideen or at least her hair.
Ah i see, thanx for clearing it up for me XD. Its a shame really becasue some of the characters look quite cool especially the woman from volume 20 link with the sword and plait
I definitely see the resemblance to Neideen they eye paatch and all haha. And one of the links in volume 14 has a charcter resembling an Abyss Feeder too
