Great cover kemar! :D


I know it's been said before, but SG's is my favorite too. :wink: Great cover!

I love the SG's cover. It captures the book perfectly.
I'm with MichelCello re: Nightwatch. The Rembrandt cover is my favourite cover of all time.
HOW did I miss this thread before now??????
AMAZING ARTWORK! Well done Kemar.

:D When I brought up the link to you work I used my "translator" from French to English. Not sure if it all translated as it was meant to though :D
(Incidentally, it also increased the place visual melons, melons very important to make an enticing cover)

or perhaps it did :D

The eyes's people who look the two witches are very different and funny the man on the left who look Esmé (or her pins ?) are the best ! lol

If you want, we do a gallery of kemar's works on our website for help to compare:

This is almost it, there's something about the "almost sexual attraction of the melons" for one of the monks in "thief of time". (sorry I don't have his original only the translated one). An illustrator has to pay attention to all the symbols carried by his pictures :]

I think it's Brother Nhumrod in Small Gods that has to go and have a lay down after seeing melons. :wink:

Tonyblack: You nailed it :)

DaveC: I just don't wanna know that!

Here's the next one:
"feet of clay"

It looks amazing, again, just as all the covers. They always cheer me up... your drawings show a different point of view of the novels and I like that :D
Listen.
