I love that I just came across this! GREAT work! We just bought this book about a month back! (And the thing that initially drew me to it was the art. I almost didn't even care what was *inside* the book because the art really, really struck me.

YESSSSSS.

She looks like my type of female character - tough but still feminine. And fully dressed ;)
And that it's traditional piece makes it even more awesome. There's just never enough good traditional works.
On the other hand I can wish and hope I will someday achieve at last a bit close to Your skills in digital media but for traditional I can't even dream...
Great work.

Oh ouch! There are so many ways that chain maille would hurt. Goodbye to all the skin on your upper-arms and shoulders! Hello to pain all down your right side from having to carry the weight of the chain too.

She's a lesbian blacksmith?

Gah, I'm annoyed.
My library only has the first one. TT^TT I really want to read the others. What are they called, since I don't actually know. It is a trilogy, right?

Black Blade Blues
Honeyed Words
Forged in Fire

All with amazing covers by Dan.

It's actually an ongoing series. I'm working on book 4 at the moment.

Best of luck

I had thought I uploaded them already too, but I double checked and couldn't find it. Perhaps we are both confusing it with another website, like CGHub or something?
