Ghostwalker - Book Cover by Tanathiel Ghostwalker - Book Cover by Tanathiel
Hey guys :)

Apologise for not putting up anything in a while ^^
But to break that pause, here is a little thing I've finished recently:

This time a book cover, called Ghostwalker ^^ Its a bit post-apocalyptic setting. Not sure about the plot or other stuff, you should check that out for yourself ;)
The name of the author is Gregory Downs =)


Anyways, this is the full cover spread as it will look like around the book =) Hope you guys like it ;)
Got to love how it turned out in the end ^^

Hm, I'd not want to mess with him either ^^;
For what I know about the character he is not really a guy I'd want to cross xD

Jól néz ki, a köpeny különösen tetszik, és a derengő lándzsahegy is nagyon jól kiemelkedik az árnyak közül:)

Yup, bár lehet hogy kicsit túlontúl túllőttem a célon az ilyen mértékű kontraszttal ? ^^;
Kicsit túl fekete a sötét rész és a lándzsa picit élesebb a kelleténél. Bár lehet hogy nincs igazam :)
Csak elég kritikus vagyok a munkáimmal ^^;

As far as I know its a collection of stories, based on the original "Ghostwalker" book =)
Can be wrong ^^ Still, happy reading when you get there ;)

I'm guessing the book is not a romantic comedy. The glowing red eyes should be your logo. Lots of great detail and mood. Love the bats?/winged demons? coming across the moon.

LOL well as far as I know, no its not a happy fairy tale :D
Its more like a post-apocalyptic setting ^^

Those are bats coming across the moon yea :3
Lol eyes should be my logo... ? interesting idea :)

I thought they were demons because of the one demon sitting on the ledge behind the main character. Thought he just got there first.

Yeah, remember the glowing eyes in the picture of the arms dealer and the one set of eyes on the far left in this picture. Some artists like to put a particular feature in all their work as a sort of logo or calling card. When Michaelangelo went to visit friends who weren't home he would draw a perfect circle on the ground to let them know he was there since nobody else they knew could draw one.

Good point actually :D
I do tend to draw glowing eye things ^^

Uhm... what demon sitting behind the main char ? oO

on the ledge on the far right edge of the picture is a black crescent that arches up into the moon. It looks like a wing. at the bottom of that arc is a small bulge that looks like a head. It looks like a demon sitting on the cliff with his wing arching up into the moon.

Its actually a building ruin part, but yea could be a sitting gargoyl or something too ;)

ok yeah, I can see that. Actually, that reminds me of some old Disney movies where the characters imagination turned the tree branches into clawing hands and tree trunk knotholes into evil eyes. Spooky stuff makes the imagination run wild.

I'm starting to appreciate the digital painting a lot more now that I'm trying to do it myself.

I pen sketch things real quick but that skill does not translate.

It was a long time until I get used to drawing on a tablet actually :) After some time, when you get the hang of it, you will be able to sketch just as fast if not faster ^^
The upside of digital drawing is the endless modifying of said drawing, without the exact need to erase ^^

I recommend checking on daarken =) He is just amazing...
He has an 8 part vid up where he shows how he draws.
Here is the link: [link]
I learned quite a lot just by watching, seriously he is good oO

I watched. I'm surprised about how many layers (very few) and how many brushes (3) he uses.

Thanks. I'll be painting.

You are welcome ;)
Look though all 8x it gives an overall idea how to draw faster and with less hassle ^^
I'm still trying to get to that level too ;P
