you should work for the comic company that is putting out the comic book and also the movie company for the movie. they cannot seem to get the cats any justice. But your art does hit very close to what the books have
described.

Well, I would like to. But, even if they shown my artworks as examples with other artists (Thomas Marrone, David Mattingly, ...) in two videos, they didn't contact me. Maybe they dislike a part of my work. Maybe it does not correspond to what they are looking for... But, well, if you like my artworks, I'm happy :)

What I got from the rear cover was this:

The Mesan Alignment has made its fatal mistake that will bring all its evil plans crashing down around its ears.

They have made enemies of the treecats, and when they get through with Albrecht Detweiler, there won't be enough left of him for the janitors to sweep up.

I think that it was a big error to attack treecats and Manticore in the same time. Because they will be very strong ally for Manticore and Haven against Mesa & Manpower...

Toujours aussi beau et classe ces couvertures. *.*
J'aime beaucoup la sage. Et ce sont les couvertures que vous réalisez, qui ont attiré mon attention sur ces bouquins.
Merci pour votre travail \(^.^)/

Flying buttresses, the see in the back and treecats watching for trouble as the Protector of Grayson arrives! Even part of the royal garden! Pardon my poor French, Magnafique!

Thank you, I'm happy that you like it. At the beginning I wanted to show a bigger part of the palace and the garden, but it was not possible. The scene wasn't very good with si many details. So I had to reduce the Palace and the garden... But I'm happy because I've managed to show them, although they are discreet.

Great, just great. I have come to expect that you impress me, but you manage to rise over my expectations often.

The amazingness of this cover cannot be described in words. You did a great job on this on this cover, always much better than they American covers.

And I love all the treecats, especially the ones with glowing eyes. And I like your version of the pinnace, very futuristic looking.

thank you for your compliments... again :)

Well, I'm happy that you like the cats. As they have a very special place in this story, I wanted to show them. But I was looking for an original way to represent them. I didn't want to draw several cats and... that's all. So I choose to "draw/suggest" their telepathic link and their determination.

But the worst part of the work was looking for informations about the palace Mount Royal

I thought your Mount Royal looked perfect. Very majestic while still obviously set in a sci-fi setting.

I know there isn't a lot on it except maybe the bit about King William's tower and how that was the oldest part.

Yes, there are only small details here or there. But no real description of the Palace. So I had to imagine the most important part. But it is not very important because the Palace doesn't take a big part in this illustration.
But I wanted to be sure before I start. Didn't want to do something too far from the universe

Very nice. The Queen of Manticore welcoming the Havenite delegation, I take it?

Take a tour of the French publisher site and see the large art, that's protector Benjamin IX of Grayson and his shuttle leaving. The crossed swords on the bible are dead give ways on both Benjamin IX's clothing and the deprting shuttle, just saying.

Usually she wear pants. But I wanted that people can recognize immediatly a woman and a man, so... almost the same red dress that another illustration was more efficient^^
