Original artwork by Sparkyopteryx.
Very early on in the development of my novel, The Afflicted, I commissioned Sparkyopteryx for bust-style portraits of the eight main characters. She turned in eight very lovely busts, which can be seen here and here. When I actually finally finished it, I approached her to discuss the licensing/usage rights and such (as I intended to sell the novel), and also to commission one more of my personal sona for a sort of out-of-character afterword/credits section. This somehow turned into her redoing the other eight, and creating an entirely new set of nine total for use in the novel.
