I love the expressions on their faces. So cool in the midst of everything around them.

Oh, hey, look, my thread got moved to the choice gallery and I got front-paged! Thank you, CGSociety powers-that-be!
And thank you, everyone else, for your kind notes and comments.

guanoLad and Gjampa - Yes, I wish this were a story too! I have names for the characters - Jaden on the left and Bree on the right - but absolutely no other story except for the very instant portrayed here. But that's the purpose of a good book cover - to make you want to read the rest of the story - so I guess I was successful in that respect!

Paintbox - Ahrgh, I'm terrible at estimating time spend on paintings, especially as I don't work on them straight for any length of time, it's all just little snippets here and there. And it also depends on what you mean by the start of painting: If you see my process, I spend hours and hours just setting up different layers, blocking in colors, rendering out a lighting pass, doing work that heavily effects the final piece but doesn't have an immediate visual impact while I'm doing it. From the very first work on Photoshop after I scan in the final laine art, I'm going to guess 30 hours, but I could be off by 10 hours in either direction!

Anyhow, thanks again, everyone, and thanks, mods, for the plug!

Thanks for the notes, everyone! I was just updating my blog and I noticed this image flaoting around there, one fo the WIP images from this painting that shows some of the later choices I was making for color palettes. The ImagineFX article that this peice is from shows some comps like this, only a lot more different from each other. Anyhow, thought I'd share them with folks:



Nomad - Thanks (but that should only be 7 words - 'awesome' only has 2 'e's! )
Sarford - Yes, those were my sentiments as well!
Rico and Nomad - I'm surprised your copies haven't arrived yet, I got mine early last week. Should be soon, then...!

Anyhow, catch you all later, and thanks again for the posts!
