Artwork Description

This is the cover for the special addition of the book by Andre Norton and Jean Rabe for the the SF book club. For these type of "band of heroes" pieces are always challenging for me. I've always enjoyed stories where a band of strangers meet up and go on crazy adventures, getting to know one another on the way.

I know I already commented on this anonymously, but I have to comment again because it annoys me when my anonymous comments don't show up (I'm sure you have your reasons for turning them off). I just want to say that I love that old rennaissance oil painting look that you achieve, it reminds me a lot of Rembrandt. Chiaroscuro, I love that word. I love your art!!!

J.P. this piece is really awesome. Hope you are well and things are good. All the very best my friend! Hope to see more stuff from you soon.....

I wouldn't even know where to start rendering for this piece, j.p. Brilliant work, glad to see more, naturally. The use of green in this is quite unconventional, very nice ^^.

Wow, I always love those dark color schemes you go with and the gold colors and lighting. I know you must have reproduced some Rembrandt paintings and other old master works to help you achieve this style, no? And the clouds, always so much life in your clouds. And the depth cues and depth of field, you really know what you're doing in that regard as well. I will always envy your talents, and in the meantime, I will keep trying to aspire to your level and those of the other Epilogue greats. Good to see a fresh post from you J.P.!
