This is so beautiful. I love the reflection and how they aren't exact at all - there's so much emotion and curiosity to the differences that I'd have to pick this book up. I don't know what I'd prefer - to write a book to get you to do a cover (you're amazing) or be able to produce art like yours. I'm floored.

I have to ask. Do you read the book before you do the cover to get an understanding for what's going on/the main character(s) or does the author/editor just give you a description of what is wanted?

Aww, thanks!! I sometimes get to read the book beforehand, which I love doing cause it really doesn't feel like work, and it helps me get inspired to sketch. Usually whether I read the book or not, the art director will have a few ideas of what they'd like to see. I send a few sketches, and sometimes we go with their ideas, and sometimes we go with mine. It's really situation dependent. :)

Yeah, I know. That was about as dark as I could make her without her appearing to be a solid black mass in the water. Details won out.

How.  Cool!  I love this piece...squeed that I noticed that Anna's wolf is calm compared to her human half, and Charles is calmer than Brother Wolf.  A very, very awesome painting.  The moon and trees are just eerie!
