The art of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest was never released through an artbook, instead manifesting piecemeal through other sources. This leaves the collection incomplete and in imperfect condition due to lossy .jpg compression. There seem to be seven primary classes of art.

  • The first includes high quality personal pictures—the big Dr. Quest and Jonny heads, Jonny's molecule picture, underwater Race, Jessie in QuestWorld and Hadji deep in thought.
  • The second are six simply-colored sketches of the characters displaying full physiques, released through the Style Guides with a color reference.
  • The third class are myriad sketches and situational drawings depicting the characters in different lights and several scenes. Most of the situational ones have been colored, as have a few of the personal sketches. While all are represented in the Digital Style Guide and many situational pieces have been used with other Real Adventures merchandise, high quality source pictures of these have never really materialized other than a few basic sketches for each character.
  • The fourth class involves images with no clear source at all, such as this and images geared specifically for the website.
  • The fifth class consist of production sketches for characters and episodes, probably released through AOL.
  • The sixth group comes from the promotional video for the show's premiere, and features concept art which is otherwise unreleased or seen in any other materials.
  • Finally, the seventh group includes stills or renders of QuestWorld released by computer animators such as Casey Dame or Francois Lord.

Cover-Up At Roswell

The Roswell Packaging also contains art on the box.

Those amazing "molecule" art pieces were made for the launch of the show, but have unfortunately never appeared anywhere else on the Internet. They were used to decorate the outside of Hanna-Barbera's offices at the time of launch:

Season Examples

These are screenshots of character profiles from certain episodes comparing character appearances. Three sets are presented for season one, which was animated by several different studios. The disparity tends to follow two patterns; most episodes seems to have been animated by Mook Studios (which did season two), using soft lines and uncomplicated backgrounds. The other group (including The Darkest Fathoms, In the Realm of the Condor, and others) feature extremely detailed background paintings, heavy lines, and substantial digital animation and post-processing. Examples for Bandit and the villains are also included.
