The book contains 2 stories, one called the Lost Race and another called Voodoo Planet both are old school sci-fi originally released a long time ago, Voodoo Planet is more of a short story but both are enjoyable if you like your old sci-fi space opera stories. Not sure when it's due for release but either Baen Books website or Amazon will have details :ahoy:

Haha fancy that, I have been given so many photo references for work I never get them linked to anything, however like most of my reference material involving people I paint over it and manipulate it to a degree :ahoy:

Haha I understand and honestly had I known where they had originated I would have either asked the client or at least mentioned it but in my line of work that rarely happens, again I use a ton of reference materials, looking through my character references I see I have at least 5 of your images mostly used for torso manipulations, changing position of arms, legs and so on as I rarely use faces mostly because of this reason. If I do they are usually a mix of other references and painting.

Wow, nice cover art!! :ahoy: Interesting to see how different generations imagine these stories of the future, back when Andre Norton was writing, these books often had shiny three-finned cigar-shaped tailsitter rocket ships on their covers. :D

Very nice work :thumbsup:
But clearly the title of the book is really boring... Secret of the Stars... It seems I've seen it one thousand times :lol:

The cover is for 2 books in one, one is white a short book called Voodoo Planet, the other main book is called The Lost Race, both rather old sci-fi books from the 80's/70's
