Got another one done for Otafest, provided the test print goes well. Not sure how I feel about those wings, but meh. Gotta be satisfied with it at some point.
So I have a confession. I hate Rinoa; she drives me crazy. There. I said it. But despite my feelings for Rinoa, Final Fantasy VIII is one of my favourites, and I figured she deserved to be in this picture anyway.
It's launch day, which means I can finally share this with all of you.
I made this cover for Robo Mecha Dream Girl 5, a manga that exists within the novel "Sanctuary" by Caryn Lix. The book comes out today, so if you enjoy YA science fiction, you should definitely check it out. Here's the description from Amazon:
"Alien meets Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds in this thrilling debut novel about prison-guard-in-training, Kenzie, who is taken hostage by the superpowered criminal teens of the Sanctuary space station—only to have to band together with them when the station is attacked by mysterious creatures.
"Kenzie holds one truth above all: the company is everything.
"As a citizen of Omnistellar Concepts, the most powerful corporation in the solar system, Kenzie has trained her entire life for one goal: to become an elite guard on Sanctuary, Omnistellar’s space prison for superpowered teens too dangerous for Earth. As a junior guard, she’s excited to prove herself to her company—and that means sacrificing anything that won’t propel her forward.
"But then a routine drill goes sideways and Kenzie is taken hostage by rioting prisoners.
"At first, she’s confident her commanding officer—who also happens to be her mother—will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. Yet it soon becomes clear that her mother is more concerned with sticking to Omnistellar protocol than she is with getting Kenzie out safely.
"As Kenzie forms her own plan to escape, she doesn’t realize there’s a more sinister threat looming, something ancient and evil that has clawed its way into Sanctuary from the vacuum of space. And Kenzie might have to team up with her captors to survive—all while beginning to suspect there’s a darker side to the Omnistellar she knows."
You can buy the book on Amazon or at Chapters (either online or in-store).

There's a launch party for the book tonight, and a reading/signing at the Lethbridge Chapters at 7:00 pm on the 28th. If you're around, you should go. I know I will.
