Your paintings of people never cease to amaze me.

The light and shadow, person and background are all incredible.

Thank you for sharing!

I simply adore all of your little details, such as the crinkles in the clothing, the red on the tip of the nose and even the barbed wire on top of the building! Very nice!

You know what, I'm going to the book store just to look for covers with your art on it xD
Sad to say, but I'll often read a book just because it has beautiful paintings like this on the cover ^^" Sometimes, it's an awesomely epic book and that's great, but sometimes I just keep it around for the cover :P

Every time you draw a book cover, it catches my interest. Whenever people pick you for cover commissions, they know what they're doing. Awesome work, in the original sense of the word.

Absolutely gorgeous! The saying may be not to judge a book off its cover, but with covers like these, the books must be awesome. :aww: The character's pose and facial expression, in contrast with the devastation in the background, is gripping. Fantastic job.

Thank you for doing that for me! I was so nervous to ask, but I'm glad I did. It came out gorgeously. I love the background too. It's amazingly exactly what I see in my head when I sit down to write!

I look forward to being able to purchase them, either directly from the author or through Amazon.

I just signed up at the Ruin site because the whole concept sounds VERY interesting and worth following (or at least lurking).
