To go along with the expanded distribution of Not Gods But Monsters, the future addition of A Prison of Flesh for the same, and the upcoming release of Book 3, both Books 1 and 2 are now permanently discounted on the Kindle eBook marketplace.
For those of you following my Instagram account, you probably know I recently purchased Wacom Intuos tablet/pen in an attempt to work on more digital pieces. As someone whose spent multiple decades as an exclusively-physical media person, this took time, like relearning how to walk. In that time, I've pulled together a handful of various character and creature sketches.
To complete the four-piece series of character illustrations for A Prison of Flesh, we have Jehn Brumal and Hollistier Thabies.
While a lot of the ground work (both art-wise and as a part of world-building) was done for the series during the development of Book 1, I did manage to pull together a few concept sketches for A Prison of Flesh. This includes drawings for the boats and Corella's favorite figurehead.
Unlike Book 1, where I tried to give each chapter its own playlist, I trimmed down the number of playlists to six. As stated in Part 1, this was because A Prison of Flesh did far less jet-setting. In fact, except for the first two chapters, large portions of the story are spread across multiple chapters. The first two lists here cover major portions of the story.
For those familiar with the painting for the first book, you'll quickly notice that the cover for Book 2 is a slight departure on multiple fronts. This is for a number of reasons. First and foremost is that it's smaller (16x20 versus 22x30) and painted on board rather than printmaking paper. I did this largely for my convenience. Also, since most of my earlier works are done the same way, it provided a bit of familiarity.
