You speak about the team of Thandi "Kaja", no ? ;)
lolz hehe now we just need Jeremy X to come and 'make things ok" LOLOLOLOL
Is that the way you guys see Thandi Palane?   I envisioned more of an albino all the way around, but with crinkly hair.  Very pale, washed out skin, light eyes...but definitely not dark skin.   The sun decreed otherwise!
love David Weber's books, my fave is Bolo Rising!

Mmmm... I don't know this title.

But I don't understand because... when I look on the web I see that it's not a Weber's book. It was written by William H. Keith's novel...
its is lolz i forget lol i was thinking of old solider lol old soldiers lols but yes Bolo
Rising is my fave book though but i do like old soldier though alot
Wonderful! Is that Ruth with the blond hair and an iPad-22? :-)

I love it... I love it... I love it... The crusier is amazing. The details are fantastic.
The ships you draw are perfect! They have great details, look realistic enough to be real, and always add that dramatic flare that the US covers seem to be lacking.

And I wish the US covers would try their hand at illstrating the characters more. As much as I like the weird looking space station on the cover of the US Crown of Slaves... the next cover(Torch of Freedom) is more or less the same station by different artist. It's boring, and the cover wasn't exactly drawing me in when I bought it. It was more like a pain, because it looked so boring.

But enough with my rant...
You captured the expressions of Ruth and Berry really well. And I like Ruth's dress. It's so pretty, I want it. (In spite of the well known fact that I do not like dresses and prefer uniforms/ jeans over dresses... XP)

And only one question for this cover:
The two standing behind Ruth, Am I correct in assuming they are Victor and Thandi Palane?
