Sabriel by clockwork-madness Sabriel by clockwork-madness
I made this as a reinterpretation for the cover of one of my favorite books, Garth Nix's "Sabriel".
There are still things that need some working on but it is largely complete and I was just too excited to not show it off :D
I hope that you guys like it.

Also if anyone is interested in having this as a print, I just set up an Inprnt! www.inprnt.com/gallery/ashleyd…

Oooh, this is really amazing. It took me a couple read-throughs to truly grasp how capable Sabriel is. She looks like such a badass here. Well done!

This is fantastic! I love the expression in her face it just says it all about Sabriel's journey and how powerful she becomes by the end.

I love it! You really nailed the no-nonsense, feed-you-your-teeth-for-breakfast attitude, and that surcoat is beautiful. :heart:

Cool!

I'd suggest also crediting the artist whose work you're adapting; that way people won't mistake this for "theft" rather than a tribute.

Hmm but I wasn't trying to remake the Dillons' work? I was trying to just make up a new cover in general for it. Do I still have to? Honestly not trying to fight or anything, just curious!!! 

I'm glad you like it though! <3

You're right; I was misremembering the Dillons' cover and thught you were using their pose. My deepest apologies, and even more compliments!

AWESOME. I also adored this series! I love how you handled the pattern on her robe- way to go! I kind of wish the background were darker, so that bright orange would glow more, but I'm not sure how that would affect what you are trying to achieve. Love it, fabulous job!
