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 :D

Thank you :)

Well, I don't know what I will do for "The field of dishonor". I have to read the book before... ;)
But I hope that I will have the opportunity to draw the duel :)

Oh.... Ups, sorry for the spoiler, I was convinced you already did read it since it is one of the earlier books...

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 probably the best Honor I've seen! I think you've really caught her look!

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?

Thanks, I'm happy that you like it :)

The battle in the background is a kind of metaphore to represent all the fight for Manticore... But, if you look carefully at the wreckage on the foreground, you may have a beginning of answer ;)
