My cover design (or movie poster - grin) for the book of the same name, third in the Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander.

I'm breaking my own rules by putting this up before I've finished illustrating Book 2. But oh well. I like it, it's finished, and it's going up; rules be hanged.

pencil and photoshop, hail to my new WACOM pen!

I hate the original book covers (at least the ones that i have) I think they should republish them and you should be the cover artist! Seriously! You have to do something with this exceptional art!

Your pictures would be much better than the covers my copies have (even ignoring the Disney one for the first book).

Achren looks like the evil queen from Willow. I'm still getting over the fact that you are equally talented in drawing and writing (on fanfiction.net right now).

You know what's really weird? I've looked at this picture for years now and finally I'm writing something. But that's not what's weird.
I know this has nothing to do with Chronicles of Prydain, but I honestly thought Prince Caspian from Chronicles of Narnia looked like this. I knew perfectly well that he was young and blonde, but I ALWAYS imagined he looked like this. Imagine my surprise when Ben Barnes came along looking almost EXACTLY like this. O.O

Great job. I love your artwork. If you could give me a link to your fanfiction account, I'd love to read your stories. ^_^
