The Riddlemaster of Hed

Woot! I've finally got the chance to try out the thing I want to do most with art! I'm in an intro to illustration class now and this is my third project of the semester: to pick a book and illustrate its cover. This is pretty much my favorite book ever (well, at the moment) and I've never found a copy that has a cover I actually like. They always made the main character, Morgan, look either ugly and pompous and stereotypical princely or... he looks like he's fifty. Ew. :X Anyway, this is how I imagine him and Deth, the High One's harpist. And painted in oil, by the way. :boogie:

Oh, I love this! All the copies I ever seen have everyone just looking weird too! But I always imagined Deth with longish hair for some reason.
Anyway, great work!

Cool. Was this a book that originally didn't have illustrations or cover art?

I think the idea of illustrating a book that originally didn't have illustrations is a great idea. Since you have an idea in your head of what it could look like, you then get to bring it to life. Heck, there's a lot of books I'd love to see illustrated!
