Just to say, this is double-good because i kind of had the Disney version trapped in my head for the longest, but this reminded me of who I saw in the story before the movie came out!  I think you captured a very good combo of realistic, hard-core, and pretty Clap

O HAI! I still have a DA account, even though I haven't used it since 2008 (wow...)

I'm the author of this book -- I just wanted to say how utterly fantastic Lane was to work with on this illustration (and the one I've commissioned for an upcoming release.) Obviously his art is stunning, but he's also fantastic from a business point of view. If anybody is thinking of commissioning him for a book cover (or any other work), I highly recommend him!

For those of you who expressed interest in reading the book (and that's exactly what a great cover is supposed to do -- make you have to find out more about that character and that story!) it was just published a week ago. The ebook is currently available on Amazon, with more ebook sites still slowly processing the file (ah, servers...) and the paperback version is being formatted as we speak. Lane actually did a full-size wrap-around illustration that flows from the front cover across the spine and all the way around to the back cover. It's stunning. Here's the ebook, for those of you with Kindles/Kindle apps!  www.amazon.com/Tidewater-Novel…

I always feel that people like you totally deserve to get great work or commissions like these because of the amount of work and effort that you've put through all these years, when you first started out and unnoticed, you never really gave up through all those ups and downs and you are where you are today because of your own hardwork, perhaps with a little bit of luck and opportunity here and there but mostly through determination and hardwork, seriously, great job and congrats on it getting published :heart:
