Here's a few book covers I did that have been circling the web. These were done for Tor, and its always great to work with Irene. The books themselves are coming out next year. As always I have the art with and without titles.


This one was done for a short story for Tor.com that is a part of the same series as the one above.


I kinda like The Quantum Thief with the title more then the one I did, the title added some shadows and killed some of the brightness that I don't think I would be able to get away with normally. Also it was a nice change of pace being the rare sci-fi piece.


Here's a work in progress for The Unremembered cover.

Normal set of thumbnails. Everyone picked the last on the right. A quick tweak was needed to see if a castle or mountains in the background would work better.

People liked the mountains more, but I had to change the pose to a different and more peaceful version to better fit the scenario.

Other then the tweaks in the rough stages, the actual book went along kinda well. No big changes, though I do remember changing the light of the tree a bit.

Beautifull works!
Question: Are there any video tutorial on how you make your digital paintings?

I found you! I've been trying to figure out who the artist GW2 was for like half a year! You're the man!

I'm an aspiring artist myself. I'd be lucky to ever be half as good as you.

TRULY epic stuff. The cover for Unremembered is what made me get it, and it is definitely my most favourite book cover of all time.

Any hopes for an HD wide-screen version of it? That'd be my all time wallpaper

Also, hopes for a poster of that?

heh, this means I could, technically, call you a colleague... seeing as how you made artwork for FFG's 40k-lines, and I have as well...

Stunning work as always.
