This is amazing! I really like the details of her tattoos and the wolves scare the crap outta me.

I love this series, and this is closer to what I imagined her... less pretty and more alive. :)

She looks way older than thirty-two here...

Not really... there's no set appearance for people in their thirties. My mother looked just like that (literally just like that-- the similarity is unnerving) at that age. She hasn't really changed much since.

Awesome piece of work!

Man, they have such talented illustrators working on paintings of her. This is so beautiful, I especially love the way you handled her tattoos--they feel so natural. Great work

They must of really changed the coloring for the cover on the book. Still really lovely. <3

yeah, that was for the Science Fiction Book Club omnibus, and they decided that the blue shirt might be too similar to how Dan painted her on Moon Called so they made that change at the last minute. I felt the cover version looked pretty good, but I prefer the original :)
