You should do more work for them, most of their book covers are awful.

Its a rare sight looking at deviations of humans on your galery, but you've done an equally good job on this as on everything else!

yeah you are right about your figures, they aren't very solid. This is after you over painted beneath layer of a photo of Mat where his clothing is not the same in texture as his face. I would think with you using photos to at least take pics of hands and over paint them. The joints don't wrap around the shaft of the gun. The finger have no change in direction in planar. They all bend in the same degree with is really strange. Take the time to draw more. slow down. ask me I will show you. I do like the color theme.

I think you should have waited until the book was available to upload this. I just checked amazon to see if it was available and interesting. This is a helpful bit of publicity/free advertising but I'm not going to remember to keep checking. Now when it comes out I probably won't notice.

They said it was ok for me to upload it but I don't think the book is due out till later. This isn't for publicity or advertising this is a portfolio of my work.

Were you allowed to read the book for inspiration?

Or was there a conference call or something where they described what they wanted?

"Guy! Doll! Gun! Two airships, one zeppliny the other kinda a WW-II destroyer vibe... and get this: it's EXPLODING!"

How does this process typically work?
