This one is by Roanen Barron. This is a scene from Chapter three. I love how he got Chance's expression here, and the steam coming off of his jacket after the fire sprinklers had cut off. The whole pose of the body is terriffic, and the smoke on the cieling catches the feel of the moment as Chance makes his play for freedom.
This is the first piece of art I got from my friend Rhonda Lynne Wingo. She captures some of the critical elements of the central characters in the book, Chance, Lucas & Wanda. Particularly, Wanda's style, the ubiquitous TK rod, and the band name on Wanda's shirt. She also captures the individual styles of the three characters.
This is from Angela Gulick back in 2011. If her name sounds familair, it's because she ended up doing the cover to the Demon's Apprentice when I released it again.
She said it was "incomplete" but I have to say, they're some of the best impressions of Chance's eyes I've ever seen. I love the depth she manages to put into this.
If this is incomplete, I REALLY can't wait to see what the finished product looks like.
So this one is a stock image Angela took and "Chanced" up a little. I like the attitude it conveys. I imagine his hair tied back into a ponytail for this.
This is the black and white sketch from above done in color. Looks even better now.
This is the image I had for the paintball pistol seen later in the book. It's big, heavy and looks like it has some authority to it.
However....this seems a little more like the kind of thing a mage would carry... especially a cool one like Dr. Corwyn.
Both of these are Ariakon paintball guns. I wanted to include a website, but I can't find one.
