I'd like this more if it wasn't Rose Red. She's a fucking little self-absorbed bitch who'd see her sister's would-be rapist knighted and part of her personal guard if it served her personal glory. She deserves whatever fate awaits her.

Her name is Rose Red, and she's a self absorbed little bitch who'd spare the life of man who killed her sister's husband, tried to kill her children and rape her sister. That proper knight is a proper cunt.

I saw you did the White Trash Zombie covers and wondered what else you did, apparently one of my favourite Fables covers. Technically I'm just impressed by how clean and sharp the image is if it wasn't for a few faded images in the background I'd swear that you couldn't have used a brush.

It's really beautiful, I loved every single detail. Also, I don't know if that's the goal or anything, but it kind of remembering something like Jeanne D'arc, I don't know how, but it just do.

The Joan of Arc thing was intentional. I don't want to spoil the comic though, but it's about this character accepting the role a higher power has bestowed on her. Glad you like it.

So, this one picture makes me want to start reading this series. And from what I've heard, judging a book by its cover is appropriate in this case.

Also, I can't begin to tell you how much I love the detailing on this armor. All of it, but the pauldrons especially. Damn.

You're missing out Mystik! It's actually coming to an end soon too, so it's a good time to start. Glad you like the details... they were a labor of love.
