I like this one very much. She seems pensive and a bit sad but also determined. BTW I'd like to see you try and capture Honor and Pavel Young on the field of honour I think that one would be awesome. I just started re-reading the series a few weeks ago and I recently finished The Field of Dishonor. That dueling scene was really powerful . I hope you will consider doing it at same point
No problem, I already knew this scene. I spoiled myself when I've started to work on this serie. It's an obligation when you work on a serie
I didn't know this serie before my publisher ask me to draw the covers. And now I don't read in the right order. I follow the needs of my publisher. I've started by "at all costs", then "flag in exile", "war of honor", ...
In that case I would recommend (if you have some spare time, that is, considering it is summer and all) you to read The Field of Dishonour, has quite a few powerful scenes, especially the duel scene I mentioned. Of course, since you are a working person I know that free time can be at a premium
I will try. But if I don't have enough time this summer, I'll read it when my publisher will need the new cover. At present I work on the new illustration for the french cover of "Honor among enemies" 2
When I will work on this novel, I will annonce that on DeviantArt
This is one of my favorites. I like the expression on Honor's face, the mixture of tight-lipped determination with her grief at all the lives lost. Perfect for At All Costs, which I always felt was the most violent of the books. And I like the depiction of the Battle of Manticore. Is this the destruction of Home Fleet?
I have always disliked the original US covers, because while I like the way they show Honor and how they even get the uniforms correct, the rest of them makes NO sense. The ships are wrong, the figures are very puppet-like (stiff, dunno if that makes sense), and vehicles & buildings/backgrounds are too "over the top sci-fi".
This.... this is just perfect. And beautiful. I wish they'd adapt these.
Thank you for your congratulations As i explained it for a magazine (i don't remember if i've already said it on DA) : when i draw, i try to feel the impressions and the emotions of the characters. And i try to retranscribe it into the illustration.
