funny,

those drones look exactly like my Sphero in the scifi story called Headhunter. It's great to see a lookalike in your amazing style, but it's such a bummer that your popularity as an amazing visual artist is just gonna set me as if i copied it from you. Great minds think alike.. i guess

i guess i better go with the teardrop design. great work here

I cannot wait to see it! Nightshade was amazing... I’m thinking on trying a Kesh doll restoration based on your art & Pippa’s books..

Nice! The 4th cover art has a better definition of her outfit (not sure when she'll publish it), although I feel that everyone consider the outfit in the first cover is canon.
The overall silhouette is still the same, I believe you'll have no problem with the plushy ;)

I’m going to try to go one step further than plushy and actually sew  outfits for an old MH, barbie or other such doll, use acetone to clean off the face, and repaint with acyrlic paints and replug the hair...

Now making that tek-whip might be more complicated lol!

Damn, that is awesome. I may not judge a book by its cover but the cover is damn well what attracts me to it.

The weapon, the Daggertail from the Dark Prince from the game Prince Of Persia: The Two Thrones... I feel like that's kind of a rip off but otherwise it's a great art work!

The two book covers (Zi and Lilith with crowns) are coming along, I'll be sending you another look very soon. I'll also lay out some possibilities for the next commission, though that Zi you did with wings is still begging for completion :D

Thanks for asking, it's great to see more of your work. And thanks for the sub you got me!

Great work with the cover.
But what the hell is "reverse harem" and why are there so many of these books on Amazon? I gotta investigate this...

:iconeddy-shinjuku:

Thanks!
I suspect it has to do with conflicting and intertwining strings of romantic relationship central to the female protagonist. Be it male, female and every gender you can think of(technical or otherwise political), and not exclusively or limited to humans lol
Trust me, I've done some research in order to depict this cover.

Cheers!

I'll give it a try. Even if that first pitch "reverse harem series where the guys are hot" doesn't sell me on the story :)

Wow, what a piece! Lights, reflections, fog, oh my. Looks like an MTG card art.
I hope Ubisoft Montreal won't have anything against you using the chain blade from Prince of Persia!

Didn't know that, I supposed they are already too busy with annualizing the next Assassin's Creed, so I'm in the clear lol
