:bulletblack: Commission: Clean Sweep - Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews

:bulletblack: All of the Clean Sweep art is included in the e-book and a black & white version is available in paperback.

I'll post some in-progress images on my blog very soon, but this painting was done in a fairly short amount of time so there aren't as many in-progress images than I would normally have. I usually save a LOT of WiP files :)

I really like the art you do for the Clean Sweep books.  Did you do the covers for Written in Red and Murder of Crows too?  I've probably read those books 30 times and enjoyed them every time.  I hope you get to do the whole series, they are very distinctive.

I didn't do the cover art for the Anne Bishop book, but I  absolutely :heart: Written In Red. We probably have the same taste when it comes to UF :p

Anyway, I'm currently working on a few commissions, one of them being Clean Sweep 2 :)

That's amazing. I can't wait to see your next art for Sweep in Peace. I was reading the comments and I just happened to have read the Others serie just a few weeks ago, which was awe-freaking-some. If you know about another book that great, feel free to share, I'll be must grateful ! :hug: 

Your art is beautiful. :heart:

Have you read the last one of The Others? It was released a few weeks ago, I believe. Anyway, below is a list of UF I've really enjoyed reading:

1. Jim Butcher - The Dresden Files (highly recommended!!)Heart 
2. Jennifer Rardin - Jazz Parks series (completed)Love 
3. MLN Hanover - The Black Sun's Daughter series (completed)Nod 
4. Seanan McGuire - October Daye series (ongoing)
5. Cherie Priest - Cheshire Red Reports (incomplete/stalled, still a terrific read)Ninja 
6. J.D. Horn - Witching Savannah (complete - not technically UF ... but still)Love 

I have the first book by Hailey Edwards which I haven't read yet (A Hint Of Frost) and this series came highly recommended, so that's next on my reading list.

Also, another one that's not UF - but I HAVE to mention - is Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) some love it, some hate it, so this is a cautious recommendation (maybe check one out in your local library first). I adore the books, though. I think the Rothfuss books are in the epic Fantasy genre :)

It was ! Visions of Silver, which I read right away. Not enough of Simon and Meg, but still amazing. The world of the Others gets more complicated by the minute, I love it. 

I read all the Dresden files, waiting for the next one, but I heard that Butcher in on to a new serie ! I know about October too. The others I really don't, so I'll check them out ! 

I can share some books that I love with my whole body, all UF : 
1- Patricia Briggs, the Mercy Thompson serie and the Alpha and Omega serie (same world, different places - totally amazing) :love:
2- Kim Harrison, the Hollows serie, which has been completed last year. Really sweet and funny and intense. :heart: 
3- Faith Hunter, Jane Yellowrock serie, the next book, 9, is coming out next week. I can't wait !! :D 

edit- I forgot to mention MJ Brennan,  Generation V serie, that I discovered a few month ago, and that's another serie that I LIKE. Like really. Massive crush on the hero, who is so lovable. :heart:

thank you so much for sharing !! :)

:squee: I was so glad when I read about the commission on Ilona's twitter, after she admired your Kate's portrait!

Love Caldenia, I imagined her older, but I like the look in her eyes and the jewels you gave her sooo much! I want that earcuff-thingie too! :squee:

Hey, ArielKuran :wave:

Yes, I was pretty chuffed too when I was contacted for the Innkeeper commissions. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment!
ArielKuran Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
You're welcome! Their stories and worldbuildings are great, but we gained something more with your artwork. I hope we'll see more in the future.

By the way, I read Written in Red after we talked about it last year: it was great! I'm waiting for my paperback copy to arrive, so I can reread it and then go on with Murder of Crows! Can't wait! :happybounce: 
Celtran Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014   Digital Artist
You did :la: I'm so excited about Murder Of Crows. Not too long now, must be patient!

Also, have you read Jennifer Rardin's 'Jaz Parks' series? The series is complete (the author passed away soon after), but it's a lovely series that's already concluded. Might give it a try if you're in for back-to-back reading :D
