This is a cover image for an as of yet not announced series of books Goodman Games plan to begin releasing later this year. Joseph Goodman was kind enough to let me get the images up on my page now, so a huge thanks to him.

The detail on this work is amazing. I work with leather off and on, and the look of that is dead on.

I think working in the film industry made very aware of how things look anf feel so I am very conscious of it in my paintings:)

Hey. Awesome picture. I especially like the looks of the engravings on the leather. It looks totally realistic.
But I gotta say, that hood with the glyphs on it... kinda makes me think of the Thief games series. Any connection there? (Sorry, I had to ask.)

Huge thanks for the big ups. The glyphs were in the brief for the cover, I haven't actually heard of the Theif gamrs series...but I guess there are only so many iconic thieves in the world;)

I love to draw armor, but you're the best I saw...
Your technique is flawless, but I have a few remarks. First, her face doesnt look like she'd back stab. I know what you'd say- "rogues are masters of disguise" or "Trickery is best hidden behind innocence and beauty", but above all, rogues are mysterious ;) she really looks like she has no secrets, despite the finger on her smile.
Maybe, for example, if you'd rise one eye-brow a bit higher? ...or maybe close one eye?
Besides that, I think that her finger is too short, at least in compare with a mid. finger.. Oh,and there is one more thing. Something is wrong with her head/face...I cant tell for sure, but I think that the eye closer to us is, or too big, or too much separated from the other eye... or both :)
Almost all comments i read were quite positive and with good reason... a little critique wont harm :) Keep this coming, and inspiring.
Cheers, man :D

If you don't think she is sneaky looking, then you are about to be taken for a ride but the best, you don't win at poker but having an untrustworthy face ;)
