New TCoRO Cover BW by zorm New TCoRO Cover BW by zorm
Draft of a new cover for my novel. Will be adding text and maybe a different bg to the to-be colored version. Right now the bg texture is reused from an older pic.

Sorta half-and-half inked with markers and PSP.

The Curse of Rha-kan'Ocka belongs to me.

Such intricate, mind-blowing detail . . . :D

Wow. :D

Hmm . . . does she wear a girdle underneath all that, or have some form of support? Not that the outfit looks wrong, but I can't remember if there was mention of such (Yay! Brain-fried-late-night-commentary!) in the story. Or maybe that's inferred with the comments on petticoats . . :confused:

But the boobies do stand out. They've got very nice support, and I can't figure out where they're getting it from.

I don't always write out every detail, but the Rha-kan'Ockian women commonly wear corsets either underneath or over the clothes. I recall I stopped liking this pic at some point, and might've written some things differently thereafter.

It also has a fair bit of mistakes (Hiid's too thin, Guarh's face just looks plain weird...) like most of the pics drawn one and a half years ago or further back (like the 'Desolate' one you commented on, I couldn't even draw women all that well back then XD), so it stays up mainly for reference. :)

Hee, what an image of a lone beautiful miserable lady walking in the meadows of Rohan... Really, she's very pretty in this pic, reminds me a bit of Belle from the Beauty and the Beast actually.

And if I have ever seen a more pierced and tattooed man in my life... lol... He's actually very funny-looking to me, I mean, although I bet he can look scary when he gets angry, he's kind of a jolly-looking fellow when he's in a good mood. I guess.

And Khran... there's not much to say about him that you already haven't heard. He's hot as always.

*dies of detail* OMGWTF how can you be so talented?? So so spectacular.

Awesome piece, EJ! It really does look like a storybook cover. I just love how you drew Hiid! Simply gorgeous! Man, you've come a long way from your first female drawings, girl. You should be quite proud of yourself. :)

Love the tone of blue you gave the pic as well. Overall, it's a stunning piece of artwork. Definately novel-worthy.

Looks very where can I find this story and read it? :D

Here: :)

A few things: English is obviously not my native language, but I shouldn't be too bad at it. The first chapters have been written 2004 and would probably need some revising, but hopefully the integrity stays. As with the style, it teeters towards parody and Pratchett-y elements on occasion.
I do take critique. People are entitled to tell me straight off, if it is a complete turkey or so tedious one feels like his or her brain melting out through the ears. ;)

The design on her dress is gorgeous. It definitely looks like a page out of a storybook.

You are a master at details and making pictures look so realistic, even if it's just outlined. I wish you the best of luck on your novel!

I wish I had your talent...I could draw covers for my novels, and I wouldn't have to scrape my pockets for commisions. Wonderful, Zorm. Best of luck to you.
