110511 starlit candles by bara-chan 110511 starlit candles by bara-chan
the cover of a book i recently did some illustrations for. it's out on the kindle right now and will be coming in other e-reader and printed versions soon! links - kindle version and the official website
technically, it's a children's book, but told from the villain's point of view, so it's incredibly snarky and humorous, making it a fun read for adults, too. please check it out if you can!

This is a very nice piece of work that certainly shows the growth and love you have when it comes to both creation and your art. What you've done overall is very strong and you've presented a captivating cover that draws into the adventure while creating an aura of question to what they are on a quest for and the connection they both have within this story. The style of your drawing really suits the approach of what the story might be and certainly makes us want to read into what this is all about, the simplicity of the design and the excellent use of the brushes that create the appeal of this being a a child's drawing with the crayon look of the colours and smudge of hues together to it feel more realistic to a 8 years old drawing.

You've shown through this that your talents have grown a tremendous deal and how your skills can work in just about every aspect, bringing the beauty that we love about work.

Looks like that might be a fun read. Maybe I'll check it out. Nice job on the cover. I like the use of the blue highlights that appear on the characters from the candles.
