Way of the Master by surfersquid Way of the Master by surfersquid
Commission for a fanfic cover image.

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.

Would like to read but unfortunately the link is not working. :( Any link-update? Or doesn't the story exist anymore?

Sorry, it looks like the author's dA account has been inactivated. Thanks for alerting me to that, I'll edit the comments. In the meantime, I vaguely remember seeing it on Fanfiction.net, so you may want to search over there (either that, or a quick Google should take you to it).

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.

Oh, the cover looks amazing, misao! :)

Maul's face is just... beautiful! The colours, the muscles. Every single detail on him looks great! :clap: Bravo! :D

The star, or is it the moon? :? Anyway, I'll refer to it as star. Well, I like how its brightness contrasts with Maul and the darkness around him.

It looks cool! :thumbsup: :D

It's actually an icy planet, so it is pretty bright. I can see how one might mistake it for a star.
