And way better than the German one, aswell... in all honesty I think it's the best looking version (they can all be seen on Brent's homepage).</span>

So, ~MiguelCoimbra, if you like the books, you should definitely do some fanarts in addition to the book covers ;)

...my only critique of this AMAZING piece is: aren't they supposed to be gun-daggers?

I love the subject and focus of the piece, the color's attributes are wonderfully ephemeral and other-worldy. Having read the book, the only thing I would add or suggest would be that the prism can utilize all colors of the spectrum blue, green, yellow, ultraviolet and so on, not just red.

The description of Gavin in the novels doesn't really match the character on The Black Prism's American cover. This version is more accurate.

The Night Angel trilogy is FANTASTIC! Had so much fun reading it. And I'm working on The Blinding Knife right now. It's great so far. Brent Weeks is an awesome writer.

The biggest issue with the official cover versus this one, is that the author rarely gets to choose what does go on the cover of their book. The illustrator is given a snippet from the story, and told to draw a cover based on that. :/

So, this is why we have, on the cover, a Gavin that does not look like Gavin. I didn't know until I read the full thing that the guy even had red hair, thanks to the above.

But man, do I wish this was the real cover! Brilliantly done! :Clap:

The flow of this picture is great. It almost looks like he's underwater. I especially like the nearly grayscale colors with the splash of red. Also, the plainness of his clothes and the detail of the sheaths and belt are really nice together.
