Netheron Prequel Cover Redo *with Summary* by Vivyi Netheron Prequel Cover Redo *with Summary* by Vivyi

The Netheron Chronicles presents:

DRETHATHON: The Waterloo of Delicacy

The Prequel to Netheron

COMING SUMMER 2016

Summary: Netheron is at war with the revolution. Estelle’s parents have gone off to seek the war, and left Estelle Mari Violetta, their 14-year-old princess, in charge of their duties. Estelle has no desire to marry- and has successfully avoided it for years, until one day a young Drethanarian prince named Otto appears and asks for her hand. What follows an innocent proposal, turns out to be a deadly sacrifice, and soon the princess must come to a conclusion: marry the two countries together, or risk destroying her own.

Read the old version of the first book here and the short stories here: vivyi.deviantart.com/gallery/4…

So I thought this needed a redraw to better suit the grungy-type style I plan to have this in... lol :XD: Hopefully you all don't mind~ there was a lot more effort put into this version, so I think it's really cool! :D

I hope it's okay ^^; I worked hard on this cover c: It's so amazing what I can do within a day... LOL :XD: Best to use references when drawing, and to use the eyedropper tool frequently when painting to blend things together! :D I figured out a lot of magical tricks all at once... I'm amazing LOL :XD:  Of course, I used my magic Vivabrush for everything... so magic looool :love: And I created it! Best part c: So the picture is entirely made with only one brush, hahaha :XD:

The atmosphere here looks so soft... :o How do you even make such softness? I also like the lighting effects - even though they're lighting effects, they clearly reveal that the surroundings here are pretty dark. 

The girls look unhappy, most likely because they run into a lot of problems.

Thank you <33 Haha, I just went with my gut for this one! I remember this picture taking quite a while to finish! Though my brain is fuzzy about the process now... I created this way back in December!

Oooooo yes, they are going to run into a lot of problems. The prequel will not have a very happy ending, since it leads into the first book, but Estelle and Marcilyn will find ways to connect with each other throughout the series!

Thank yooou <33 Haha, it really is a little less cute than usual :XD: But it's supposed to be that way~ I don't know yet if I'll be using this style yet inside the content, but I'm thinking about it. I might actually use my other new style for it (the cuter one), we'll see when I develop the story a little more. I might try developing a grungy gothic style for it.

I'm really loving this new style! It looks awesome and you're improving with each work :D I particularly love the eyes in this piece. As for creating more feminine hands, I've always had trouble with hands so I'm not overly qualified to say this, but I find that having more slender, less 'bumpy' fingers often helps with achieving a softer look.

Ahhhh thank you <3 :love: And thanks so much for the advice! I knew it was something I was doing, but I couldn't pinpoint what was wrong. I'll definitely edit that!
