Shadowkiss cover inks preview by emmav Shadowkiss cover inks preview by emmav
Surprise #vampireacademy ink preview! Shadowkiss cover. ^_^

The fabulous Richelle Mead gave her blessing to post up the inks so that you can see how the cover is taking shape. I’m so excited about seeing what Caravan (colourists) and Ching (Designer) turn this image into! I’m really pleased we were able to go with this simple moment for the cover of the third book. It will mean something a little different to you depending on how much of the series you’ve read, and I do like a picture that tells a story. ^_^

I hope you like it!

The hand over the heart means so much... (ehem ehem... refering to later on in the series.... poor Dimka... Sigh). Are you going to do the Bloodlines series?

"has a :squee: moment" okay I'm good now honest :nod: even though this is only a inked version I can see how much those two feel for each other in it's very sweet, but it also seems to hold somewhat of a sad moment considering what Rose is going through within the third book :) death can really bite... :(
