The Name of the Wind, Marc SIMONETTI (2D)


Title: The Name of the Wind
Country: France
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Hi there,

Here’s the french cover art for the marvelous book by Patrick Rothfuss “The Name of the Wind”.
I just tried to keep the spirit of the story.

It was made in painter and photoshop.
I just can’t wait to read the following book.

Comments and crits are most welcome.

hi Kémar,

Your Illustration remide me the famous Gaspard David Friedrich painting :

i love this painting , the symbol of romantic landscape contemplation

Your Work honor him.

Good work.

ps in french “Si tu es de passage sur lyon on se boit un café, n’hésite pas”.



Very Nice work…:applause:


That is beautiful! I honestly don’t know how the book will be able to compete with its cover.
Amazing work!


Lovely atmosphere and colour usage …


Marc this is stunning, and beautifully captures the wonderful world of Kvothe - I can’t wait for the second either. I’ve done an image from the book myself - hope to share it soon.
