Way of the Master by surfersquid Way of the Master by surfersquid
Cover illustration for :iconalcuin18:'s Star Wars fan fiction, which can be read here: [link]

I hadn't worked in traditional media for a while so I was a little concerned about how this would turn out, but I think the results went beyond my expectations. Maul lends himself to very fun color work.

Prismacolor markers and pencils, with acrylic paint for the highlights.

Obviously I love this. It is absolutely perfect for my story. You did such a great job with it, exactly what I wanted and more. I can't wait to see it published. :D

This cover is looking really professional, might want to touch up on the lettering though, digitally or otherwise

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm not the best at lettering. <_< I would have done that part digitally, but the client asked for a completely traditional piece.

Have you ever given stenciling a shot? Its time consuming at first but I think you might like it.
