New cover progress! Sorta. O.K. so I've been working on my own ideas lately, but those won't help me land a book cover as well as a painting of an already published book, right? Hell, I don't know, but it's worth a shot... This is just the black and white study in charcoal. The finish should be in oils...

When it comes right down to it, I am not a painter. I draw. 'Tis my specialty. Charcoal is that fine line between the two, and the one media that has taught me more about painting than even paint. I love portraits, in any case. Anyone want their face up here? Anyone want to sit still for an hour?

So these are terribly awful shots of my painting in progress, but I had to prove to someone, perhaps myself, that I was indeed being studious. The shadow behind our main character is actually going to be another person running, so this painting has a ways to go yet. But it's pulling together kindly.
