Shahrazad cover by ToolKitten Shahrazad cover by ToolKitten
Yes, they decided on an american spelling that will be easier to read :)

anyway. i wanted to make a joke about lighting this cover, something like, deciding not to use what was drawn and instead make my own. but there isnt anything funny there. its just sometimes lighting everything with fire gets older than moldy cheese. there are only so many ways to make it look good and its so "dramatic" thats its way over used. so i implied sunshine through a porthole (shes is in her ship cabin)

lines by :iconkromespawn:
colors by me, nei ruffino. (so for gods sake if you have a complaint about the lines, shut it! LOLOL :P)

Is that a Mass Effect gun I see on the wall behind her?

At first I did not want to get a better look at this, simply because I am not a fan of ridiculously large breasts. I noticed they were not, and upon closer inspection I found your coloring, shading, lighting, and all around attention to detail is very admirable. For me though, it's her facial emotion that I'm really drawn to. Especially her eyes. Many thanks.

The myriad of attractions is overwhelming. whether it be the steampunk goggles, the exploring magnifying glass on the globe and ofcourse the lucious and realistic female (like the naughty look and transparant dress where you can see her bellybutton). This all wrapped in it seems a great tree with winding staircase and fireplace (yes i read the porthole, i just let my imagination go). I could do without c3p0 though. I dont know if the bookmark are your initials if so. Brilliantly integrated. If not, an idea ?

well now, with the wide array of weird things from other places in this cover, I'm more tempted to read this than ever before! of course, the girl wearing floss for clothes doesn't hurt either. :P

Agree with you lighting comments. there have been some magnificent pics and images done with that as a primary source, but its long since become a tired trope especially in Fantasy art.

Great Image above, love the primary lighting, great work on the shadows cast (I especially love the one cast by the magnifying glass on the globe)
The softer, background lights are also well done, especially like the glowing fruits(?) on the plant.

Plus, while you have filled the edges of the image with some nice detail the eye is not overpowered by this and is still drawn to the main character, especially her face thanks to the clever use of the feather.

Great piece :)

Beautiful picture. This is a coincidence or this gun on the wall really looks like the basic assault riffle from ME universe?
