The Way of the Black Beast/Final

Here's a crop of the final--I didn't want to make it too smooth, and I didn't want it to look like photostock or Poser; the idea was to have it look hand done, though with a digital pen. I'm pretty happy with the result, though I doubt any mainstream press art director would put up with the looseness or the style. This is why I am so happy I was able to work directly with the author, who let me just do what I wanted. Stuart Jaffe is a very good writer--he writes very strong characters and keep the reader turning pages to find out what happens next. I might have to go buy a print copy when it comes out!
