Herewith my figment, Alex Gotth, Master of Sorrows, giving us the light show--the sparks and lightning. And looking yummy while doing so, of course. :) Yeah, this is just happy fluff that's a book cover draft.
I have been working on the cover for Book 3 this past month...I just *had* to go and make a new Sorrows model and new vambraces (and a whole outfit) for this occasion, even though Alex will likely be in the background of the cover for Sorrows' Conjurors if he's even visible. That book, which I finished this summer, needs formatting for Amazon, a cover, and whoop! We're done. And as yet another detour...I wrote a darned fun little book that branches off from the main Sorrows narrative. That one actually takes place, timewise, in the latter part of Book IV, which has been outlined but not yet (re)written. Oh, yeah, and I wrote a novelette that follows Book 3 immediately, Yikes! It needs a cover, too! I'm gonna stay busy, clearly.
I still spend a bunch of time modeling most every day... so Poser art is a nice change of pace. :D With any luck, some of this stuff will find its way to the marketplace, but not for a few months yet...at my slow pace.
Um, credits, yeah: My dial-spun figment based on M4 (Azrael skin?), wearing Cyperpunk M4 pants with the JM-PostApocalyptic leather texture (both old DAZ products) and my Goth Boots from the Rendo Store. I modeled (Modo) and textured (Substance Painter) the sword and the conforming vambraces, using the cool new PBR shaders for Poser. Hair, sparks, background and various stylistic grungies added in Photoshop afterward. Lots of Ron's brushes and whatnot used--that's always a happy thing.
Enjoy! Thanks for looking.
