It's been a while since I had the chance to comment on one of your covers, but I'm not in the least disappointed - you've turned out another outstanding work! Choosing "From The Highlands" as your source of inspiration might seem counterintuitive to some at first, considering that the title story is about Nimitz and Samantha convincing the Bright Water Clan of the People (treecats) to send colonists offworld; but I think you can make a very strong argument for the proposition that the meeting of Anton and Victor (and the supporting roles played by Kevin Usher and Berry (soon-to-be) Zilwicki, future queen of Torch) is more consequential to the series as a whole. The portrait of Victor is a bit small for me to make out details - hopefully you can make him a central character when you get to doing "Cauldron of Ghosts" - but you've perfectly captured Anton.

I will say that I'm really looking forward to what you do with "Cauldron of Ghosts", which is one of my favorites in the entire Honorverse series so far. It's a real tour de force by Weber and Flint and there's just so much there that you can take inspiration from that it's a useless exercise, almost, to guess what you might choose - but I'm going to try anyway ;) . The book contains one of the most emotionally moving moments of the whole series, which captures the essence of the bond between Anton and Victor as it's been redefined since the alliance between Haven and Manticore took away the barriers that had formerly been there - but I think rendering it in picture form is going to be a pretty tough job. On the other hand, the transformation of Jurgen Dusek and his organization from (actually fairly principled) mafia to Resistance stalwarts - from zeroes to heroes, as it were - is a central theme of the book and I'd love to see how you portray that (if, of course, you do select that to work with).

Hello Gloveslover.

Sorry for the late reply. I have a busy summer.

Well, I choose the novel about Victor and Anton for several reasons.

1 : the story about Nimitz and his tribe is very, very interesting. I was about to illustrate this one... Then I realised that it's very short. Even if the subject is really important. So I was not sure.
2 : the story about Anton and Victor is longer, so a little more representative of the book :) And these characters will be very importants in several novels in the future of the timeline. So...
I had a discussion with my publisher and we decided to choose this one for the illustration.

I'm impatient to read "cauldron of ghosts".
I really love the association between Weber and Flint.
Together, they manage to obtain a good mix between adventure, tactical/strategical narration and fun.

Very nice picture! It's been a while since I've read the book so might I ask who the characters on the cover are? Thank you.

Not yet but soon.

At present I work on "the honor of the queen".
After it I will draw 2 other "old" covers.
And I did 4 other "old" covers but I wait for the publisher to show them.
When He'll show them I'll do the same ;)

Je l'ai lu il y a un bon moment, je ne me souviens pas de tout mais j'avais bien aimé.
Le moustachu en grand a un petit air d'empereur prussien ou russe...je dirais que c'est Anton Z.
Le petit groupe armé doit être Victor Cachat à l'avant-plan, et les super guerrières génétiquement augmentées dont j'ai oublié le nom.
Encore une couverture réussie.
