New pre-made cover

Image
Just a quick update: I recently added a pre-made covers gallery here . I'm currently working on a FAQ page for it, so I hope to add it soon.

Urban Fantasy Cover

This is a painted cover that I recently finished for an author. The commission was for a full cover, including a spine and back cover. Since the book isn't published yet I can only show the cropped version of the front cover. 

Kate Daniels Series: Derek

Image
It's done! It's finally done! I have finally managed to finish this Derek painting. It's been years in the making. I'm not even kidding: the first sketch was done around 2013. The original idea was supposed to be the character we meet for the first time in the Kate Daniels book. When I decided to actually start painting him late last year, I felt it was more appropriate to paint the older version of the character. I decided to keep the sword from the original sketch: it's from Kate's weapons stash. I felt it was a nice homage to the younger Derek since he took the time and ended up choosing the sword for himself. Click to view larger image The novella cover I painted only showed part of his scarred face, and since there are quite the coterie of Derek fans out there, I confess I was a little intimidated at the prospect of painting his face in full view (please be kind to me, Derek fans). The initial concept was to have a dark background dominate

Zaeed Massani

So here is another of my Mass Effect fan art - a head portrait of Zaeed Massani :)  Like the other pieces, I drew this with pencils and later coloured it in Photoshop.  Some 'work in progress' photos below:  click to view larger image There's not a whole lot to say about this one.  It did take me ages to find time to actually colour it though (I drew this last summer!).  I  really wanted to include Zaeed's armour.  In the end though, I decided to leave it out completely and just focus on his face.  I also didn't want to obscure his Blue Suns tattoo, which is an important part of his story. click to view larger image The drawing itself was intended as a lighting study.  Originally I wanted this portrait to be much darker, with just a beam of light from above illuminating the side of his face and scar.  But with heavier shadows, a lot of the facial features and form were lost. So I scrapped that idea and lightened everything again. And that's th

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! Back in 2012, I made a deviantART account but never actually got around to using it.  Well, I've finally posted some stuff:  a certain moogle, and two Jack (Mass Effect) fan art! click to view larger image click to view larger image I've had fun interacting with other artists and fellow Mass Effect fans on dA this past week.  Soon I'll be posting a Disanthus collaboration and a few more Mass Effect pieces as well (not Jack *gasp*).  If you're on deviantART, please drop by and say hi! :) Link: http://tinkarooni.deviantart.com/ Posted by Annette | Follow me on Twitter

AC IV: Black Flag - Edward Kenway

Image
Huzzah for "Better Late Than Never" posts! I've had this one sitting on my computer for a while ... just wanted to wait after the new layout and the Innkeeper stuff were done before posting Edward. I'm absolutely in love with Assassin's Creed IV - Black Flag . The naval gameplay is amazeballs.Truth! The first blond assassin in the series which threw me off a bit when I saw the first images. But now Edward has become my favourite character. Click to view larger image This painting underwent a few big changes. I initially painted him in his assassin's gear, but I actually like him much better as a pirate. I also liked the tattoo's from the trailer a lot more than the tattoo Edward has in-game (seems there are quite a few characters with the same tattoo, so I didn't think it was original enough). Plus, the tattoo in this painting includes the Jackdaw, so there. Click to view larger image Loads of details crammed into this painting, which to
