Great as always, but I must nitpick just one detail.  You always depict RMN uniforms as blue, but if I remember correctly from the books they're space-black.  You did an excellent job capturing the mood of the book.  It was painful to read.  Although it would have been interesting to see you depict her wounded after her duel with Pavel Young.  I think it would have added to the emotional impact of the illustration.

Yes, sometimes I take some liberties.
For example :
- my publisher wants a dark starmap in the background of each illustration.
So all covers (or almost) are dark, very dark. That's why I don't want a black uniform...
Draw a black unifom on an almost black background... :(
It would be too dark and we could not see nothing in a book store, except a strange dark cover.

- As the sky where you can see 2 moons. There is only one moon.
But if you are a new buyer, you don't know that Honor Harrington is a sci-fi serie.
With 2 moons, even a new buyer can guess that it will read a sci-fi/fantasy story.

And I didn't want to show her wounded because I wanted to create a poetic and sad atmosphere.
Some blood would have destroyed this atmosphere. It's only my point of view...

Wow. This one is really gamazing. It fits so well with the novel. The way Honor stands there, not like a winner, still desperated and sad.

That's what I wanted to show.

She wins, she has her revenge...
But her "fiancé" is still deand. Nothing can revive him.
And now she lost her career, her country and wins an exile...
And her sadness is still here.
LakitaCuvier Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, that's wat I meant.

Beautiful as usual!

At first I actually wanted to nitpick that pulsers are mass drivers and wouldn't be "smoking guns" after being fired, but then I remembered that they fought the duel with "antique" powder-based handguns.
