The reaper,  Discworld by MarcSimonetti The reaper,  Discworld by MarcSimonetti
This is the cover art for Terry Pratchett's Reaper.

Off course there's a big reference to Millet's "Angelus", and the rat death appears as a guest star...

I hope you'll like it!

"It can't be intelligent, can it?" said the Bursar.

"All it's doing is moving around slowly and eating things," said the Dean.

"Put a pointy hat on it and it could be a faculty member," said Ridcully.

"Good day, Mr Door. I see I won't have any rat problems with your friend present."

Er, how did one of the trolleys get out into th fields? Don't tell me a supermarket is opening there?

I would like to have seen the little girl. "Hello Mr Skellington".

Brilliant cover! I love the reference, and I love all of the detail you've put into it. The zombies in the background, the other death in the distance, and the guest star appearance of Rat Death - excellent!

"...A blade that was sharpened by light.It was so sharp that,if you bring your hands even a few centimetires (15 or so)you would be sliced in half.
a blade sharp beyond sharpness.A blade which is the very incarnation of SHARP."
love it.

Incredible. Captures the feel of the book perfectly, especially the lighting. Only thing that (slightly) bothers me is that huuuge Scythe. Otherwise, perfect work, wish they used you for the german covers (they changed the legendary Kirby covers to some badly rendered CG images, no love at all in those :( )

Good God, it's so detailed! I don't think I can name my favorite bits! Overall, though, I like that you combined all the elements of Reaper Man, like the shopping carts and the undead and the New Death way off in the background. It's just so-- I don't even have a word for it! If there us some way of recommending this for a daily deviation, let me know and I'll do it in a heartbeat!

You made from Death a farmer in dungarees. It's completly different character to classic Pratchett Reaper. Suddenly dignified, serious shadow descends on the field. Amazing sky and my lovely rat. Great!

I <3 this so much! Bill Door (I pictured him a little taller, but whatever), the awesome nod to the shopping card, the Death of Rats! I think I can even make out Ridcully and the wizards, as well as the Bogeyman back there (forgot his name), yes? Awesome! So much about this to love!
