Jhereg by kerembeyit Jhereg by kerembeyit
This is the cover art that I made for the book named "Dragon" by Steven Brust (Vlad Taltos Series).
This cover was made for the Turkish Edition of the book. They wanted me to draw only the dragon but
I couldn't resist making a powerful background. They like the finished work but they had to
go with the black background so actual book cover has no moonlight and forest:( But I wanted
you to see this version instead of the black bg version. Making Cover art has some
disadvantages (Size, Big empty space for the titles...) but I did my best.

Oh, and this is not a dragon actually, this is supposed to be a little jhereg, they're different from dragons,
I wanted to draw it as in the writer's description, but editor wanted me to draw a dragon because there
were dragon illustrations on the previous covers, so I came up with this, a small dragon...

I also have made another cover for the Issola (9th book of the series) book and I'll submit it soon.

Enjoy:)

Great work. Wouldn't they lack imagination so much, the editors would know that a strong backround on a book cover is attractive to readers, as it let them enter the book's universe a bit more...

A friend had has me to do this one for them a long time ago and I wasnt sure who the artist was. It was finally brought to my attention that it was your beautiful work. If you want me to take it down i will, but i just wanted you to be aware of it. The tattoo is not real by the way...it was simply the creation of too much free time and some sharpies.

Gorgeous colour choices. The lighting, composition and perspective are so spot on, I'm amazingly jealous ^_^

Absolutely breathtaking.
