Out of all of your Honor Harrington covers I like this one the best.  I don't remember where I first came across your work but I remember thinking your art was the best fan pics out there. Now I realize you are a commissioned artist for a French publisher and I am so jealous that your art isn't adorning our book covers in the United States.  Will you be working soon on the cover of the book Honor of the Queen? How will you approach future covers with the upcoming Tales of Honor themes take on the look for the Honor Harrington series? Personally I think the Tales of Honor style will work even if initially I was against it. Your art though is something that I hope keeps to the beautiful style you started with.

Well, I'm working on "the honor of the Queen" :) But it's difficult to make a good mix between the fighting scene with Honor + Nimitz and a spatial scene. So, it's not yet ready. Maybe this summer...

About tales of Honor, I already did these illustrations for "Worlds of Honor" and "More than Honor"

And I will start a new one in few weeks with the same style.
As I did'nt read the book for the moment, I don't know what I'll draw. I will read it very soon :)

Your work is fantastic. It's exactly what I imagined for the covers of my series of sci-fi novels; unpublished unfortunately. so far...:)

Yeah I've sent of my submissions to some agents, so if it doesn't get picked up, I'll self-publish.

Nicely done, Genkkis, although one thing does bother me. In the books, the RMN uniform is described as being "space-black," not dark blue. But that's just me nit-picking.

Yes, I know. Even if I always read the books before I draw the illustrations, my brain didn't remember this detail. So I did this dark blue on my first illustration...
Now I can't change because it would be a "break" in my illustrations. And it has to be homogeneous.
So it's too late to change... But I think that it's not an "horrible" mistake...;)

No it's not a horrible mistake by any means. And it is a very small detail. Also, Honor's face looks a little different in this one than some of your earlier pieces. It looks a little more angular, which is how I always pictured it.
