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 am in shock for words, the shading, the background, the colors, the pose, the body portions...just everything is fantastic! She looks so realistic and this is seriously awesome...Amazing work!!! I can tell that you put a lot of detail and time into this masterpiece! :)

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