:Commission: Poison Skies album cover


And this project is done as well! Commissioned by Kjorteo and DavidN to be used as a cover illustration for a CD they're collaborating on based off of Kjorteo's e-book The Afflicted. Which if you can remember that far back, some years ago I was also commissioned to illustrate portraits of each character as chapter headers.

Largest piece I've ever done to date, at 20'' at its longest. I have no idea how many hours this took. Done with Copic markers, multiliners and ballpoint.

    Hi, it's me! This really is spectacular, and thanks for working so hard on it - it's really going to make the album :) Once I receive the physical copy I'll get it scanned (my wife works at a book design company, which is great for things like this) and send you a hires file.

    I am blown away by how this turned out. I know we discussed this together and decided on the inks for characters/markers for the background combination specifically because of the eye-popping contrast that would make, but actually seeing it just amazes me how well that worked. It's perfect!

    This captures the mood of both my novel and the album splendidly. I know this was a huge order, but you truly pulled it off and David and I are both thrilled with it. Thank you so much!

    Is it all right if I repost this, by the way? (With all due credit and links, of course!) I know you just sent it as a collection (thank you!) but I personally like to have both. That's me, though, so feel free to say no if you feel the collection is sufficient.

      (Sorry for the horribly delayed comment, I've had a backlog of obligations and I seemed to space replying to you). I'm incredibly happy you like it so much! Quite the undertaking for a commission but I'm glad I was given the opportunity (and great patience!) to tackle it.

      If you wish so and proper credit and link is given, go ahead!

    I'm stumbling on words here, so I'm just gonna settle on "Wow."
