Urshe by krysdecker Urshe by krysdecker
K ... back in August, a person saw my drawings and decided that i was the right person to do the covers for his books ... the fun thing is .. it worked out very well. He met me in a very weird moment of my life and i ended up getting a new friend as well ...

So, this is the cover for his 1st book Urshé. I read the initial part of it that he sent me to get the description of the main character and what everything was about to do the cover ....

From someone that doesnt read anything bellow Bernard Cornwell, i have to say, he's quite good .. even the small sample got my attention fully and well ... i believe thats enough.

If you like good books, modern fantasy, or just a good reading i fully recomend stoping by the books website and taking a look at them.


everything in the cover was made from scratch btw
this cover was made in aug-sep 09

oh yeh, i do serious comissions btw =p

Damn... I wish I could have a cover that awesome for my story. But I suck at drawing, so I can't XP

Those shoulders are just amazing! Best of luck to the author. I think this cover will definitely draw some attention. :)

Awesome work

I think the inspiration for the shoulderparts is pretty obvious, 'meh ? xD

Again, amazing lighting, textures, colors. Everything has depth. I especially love how you worked the skin where the metallic arms hold on to his shoulder and back, they're squeezing in there.

What I love is out of this entire masterpiece you've used Papyrus Font at the very bottom! xD How cliché, but I still love it!

I think you nailed this book cover right on the head. Just from the picture and title combination I get a classic "good versus evil in a struggle to understand the meaning of it all" plot line. I could be completely wrong - but that's the theme I'm getting and it would for sure behoove me to read the book :]

Couldn't resist being the first to comment.
It sucks.
That is all.
Just kidding mate. Amazing job. To this day I'm speechless. Dreaming up a character is one thing, but actually seeing it with your own eyes is priceless. Thanks for giving me that. Oh yeah, and the fact that the covers will attract some (a lot of) attention helps too.

Thanks again mate, and you're not off the hook yet. New book soon.
