I get it, I understand why you may not want to provide a full resolution version and it's entirely your discretion, and I lament you've been burned somehow in the past. That said, I've I always found this backwards; digital art made at high resolution only to be provided on hardcopy. What's the point of the high digital resolution image? What's the point of even listing the high resolution on Deviantart? It's clearly not 3673x2197, nor is there any way to pay for a full-resolution version. Again, entirely your prerogative; it's your creation after all. I'm just trying to understand the reason you don't list it as 900x538 and call it a day. It just seems like a tease to anyone that would gladly pay for a full resolution version of it.

In fact, on deviant art, the high resolution file is usefull only for technical needs, in order to print high quality posters and things like that.for Those who want to but It. Or for artists who want to share good material with their followers,. Like i did with the honorverse starmap, for free of course

Ce sont les nouvelles couvertures des romans? Car ceux que j'ai n'ont aucun de ces dessins :( C'est bien dommage car ceux ci sont meilleurs!

Oui. L'Editeur a commencé à les refaire il y a 4 ans environ.
Tous les romans de l'Honorverse (Honor Harrington, recueils de nouvelles et cycle Saganami) parus chez l'Atalante depuis 4 ans ont été illustrés par votre serviteur :). Par contre les couvertures des anciennes éditions sont refaites lorsque le stock de l'ancienne version est quasi épuisé.
Donc doucement mais sûrement tout est modifié au fil des rééditions.

Content que ça vous plaise :)

Ah zut! Je n'ai que des anciennes versions! :'( Même "la disparue de l'Enfer" que j'ai acheté il y a un mois...

Ah. Bah il reste toujours la possibilité de télécharger mes dessins et de les imprimer :)

Ben la disparue de l'enfer 2 vient juste d'être refaite. Je pense que bien des libraires ont encore l'ancienne version.
Chez l'éditeur le stock s'amenuisait mais n'était pas encore épuisé.
Comme c'est un jeu de dominos il faut attendre un peu pour que les libraires se retrouvent à commander les nouveaux et ainsi de suite :)

Mon libraire n'a pas les Honor Harrington, elle va surement le commander quand je le voudrais ... Alors heu, c'est un peu aléatoire là....
L'air de rien c'est pas si connu que ça en France. Un copain qui travaille à la biblitohèque municipale de mon bled ne connaissait même pas la série, du coup ils ont commandé les premiers tomes.

Ca dépend des endroits.Je les ai vu en Fnac, cultura, leclerc, chez des libraires et même en médiathèque... Et d'autres structures/magasins des mêmes enseignes ne connaissent pas. J'imagine que ça dépend des goût des personnes chargées d'approvisionner les rayons. Si elles connaissent ou pas...
Alors qu'aux USA c'est carrément un best seller à chaque nouveau tome...

je crois que c'est parce que la science-fiction reste un genre mineur en France ... :(

Oui et non. La science fiction a quand même progressé dans le sillage de la fantasy depuis 20 ans (à un degré moindre mais tout de même). Le vrai soucis de Honor Harrington avec la culture Française, c'est que c'est de la science fiction militaire.
Du coup, dans des pays assez militaristes comme les USA, ça passe bien. Ils vouent une admiration à leur armée donc ça passe très bien.
Ici on est plus circonspect avec ça. Donc il n'y a pas le même public et les mêmes ventes.

Mais bon, ça va, c'est une série connue même chez nous :)

Helena Cain? Who is she?
(quick search on google)

Oh, Battlestar galactica and the Pegasus !
I'm a great fan of this serie and especially this period :D !
I didn't remember her name !

Well maybe a little...
That's funny because I have not watched an episode since a long time. Sometimes, when you draw, you are influenced by the things that you like. And you discover it later : "Damned!, the character I've drawn looks like XXXXX" or "Wow this scene looks like this movie".

I guess that we are the sum of what we love. And sometimes it appears in our artworks.

And now I have to work... but you've given me the envy of watching my dvds :D :D :D :D

I have this habit of disappearing whenever school starts... I am so sorry that I've been ignoring you and your wonderful artwork!

And now thanks to a computer graphics class I am taking right now I can appricate your artwork even more!

Its been a while since I've read/listened to Honor Among Enemies but the second I saw this cover I reconized what it was.

The detail on the ships is amazing, espcially the Q-ship. If I remember a quote for the book correctly, they were 'eggshells armed with sledgehammers' and this definitely shows how fragile Honor's ship really was against a real warship.

I love the detail on Honor's face and the harsh lighting as well, very high contrast the draws the eye. Oh and look at that you got the rank pin right as well. :D

While I don't know if I like the whole right hand upper corner being pure blinding white, it does work (since that is the direction the lighting in the whole artwork is coming from.)

And I know this probably a bit late, but if your wondering, blue and white are the offical Winton colors. (I rememer reading in one of the books that they sting ships painted those 'offical' colors.) :ashamed: Sorry I'm so late.

Hello :)

it's nice to hear some news from you :)

Well, yes, that's too late, the illustration is finished since 2 weeks ;) But it does not matter.

At present I work on the second cover for "A rising thunder" :)

Have a nice day, and I wish you the best for school :)

That's horrible! (and very understandable from an artist's perspective) Do you offer hi res digital downloads of your work? I'd prefer that to a physical print due to limited display space. (and don't have $75 at the moment either :)) I love being able to peer inside and see the details, like the ship's name Artemis on this one.

I prefer what I perceive as the richer colours seen on concertart.org when it differs. I know saving it as a JPEG can produce artifacts, but I didn't know it can subtly change the colour scheme too.

I'm sorry but no. I keep a very bad souvenir of several experiences like that. I hope that you understand :(

I didn't make my pictures for Deviant art and for conceptart.org at the same moment.
For one website the illustration was in rgb when I did the jpg, for the other it was in cymb. So, two jpg of a same illustration can present different colors... ;)

Your illustrations are jaw-droppingly awesome! This was the first Honor book I read, because its cover attracted me and after this, I dived into the whole series. Your covers would do the same, unquestionably!

I noticed I can download only this cover at full resolution, though you've submitted all at multi-GB sizes. Is that intentional or accidental? I would love to see the details of all of them as clear as this one if possible.

I'm glad that you like my work :)

About the download, well... For various reasons, I don't want to let people download the hi-res files. So, this time, it was a mistake. You were lucky :D

But, if you want, you can find some good-size illustrations on my thread on conceptart.org (a wonderfull website for people who likes art).

Ah, you offer them for sale through deviantART?

Thanks for the conceptart.org link! The critiques are quite interesting, and I notice colour/saturation variations in some of them, especially On Basilisk Station.

Yes, the colours vary sometimes because I haven't made the jpg files with the same method. I have to be more rigorous about this detail.

And yes I sell prints of my illustrations with deviant art :)
But that is not the only reason to block the download of high-res files. Sometimes, some people download your hi res files, modify them and sign them as their own artworks... I don't want to see that.

Hello,

thank you for your congratulations.

And yes, a cover is planned for "A rising thunder".
I've finished to read the first book a week ago.
And I'm working on the first cover since two days (between other works as usual) :)

So your question arrive right in time ;)

Probablement mon préféré de toute la série. Superbe composition. Les yeux légèrement en amande hérités de sa maman, le jeu d'ombre et de lumière, et ce mélange parfait de féminité et de dureté. ce regard déterminé rayerait un blindage en acier de combat, pour reprendre une métaphore de l'Honorverse.
Si on cache la moitié lumineuse du visage et qu'on ne garde que le côté sombre (dans tous les sens du terme) avec la tête de mort flottant dans l'espace...on a vraiment envie de se barrer vite fait plutôt que d'affronter cette femme en colère.

Heureux que cela vous plaise. J'ai voulu montrer Honor sous son aspect dur pour ce tome ci car elle y représente vraiment l'ordre, tant contre les Pirates que contre certains mauvais éléments à la limite de la mutinerie au sein de son équipage.
De plus, elle se sacrifie avec son navire pour sauver des civils (ce que montre le reste de l'illustration).
Donc il était temps montrer l'"officier Honor Harrington".
