It was Dragon #352 that first got me interested in China Mieville's books, so much so that I eventually wrote my senior keystone project about them in college. Your illustrations in that article were one of the biggest things that got that interest going, and for that, I will always be grateful to you. Thanks, nJoo!
I'm almost done reading Perdido Street station, planning on reading The Scar right when I'm done with it. The most impressive of these is your Kephri! It's exactly how I thought they looked. Absolutely amazing!
what is truly remarkable is that you had not even read the books when you painted these ~ yet they are so true, especially the Remade, Rivebow and Stingbox; and seeing these images enhances the reading.
Oh my, I absolutely love these! Miéville is my favorite author, so that helps xD But you draw very well, and your take on the species is just great! I have my own view of them, so it's nice to see what others think : D
Thought i recognised these in your folio from somewhere! Just started reading Perdido Street Station and i'm already loving Mieville's world. I love the take you've done on each of them, its good to see how someone else imagines the creatures visually. i especially love what you did with the remade and the vodyanoi. Although i love the buggy-coolness you got into the khepri i think it wouldve been more in keeping to make it more traditionally scarablike? though that would be hard not to make it look generic. overall damn good show!
These are great to see. I like the way you did a group of concepts, the remade, garuda and kephri are just my kind of thing, and it was great to see someone take a crack at a handlinger. Good work. Do more!
These are great!
I had heard that DnD were developing the China Mieville books into the game. Should be pretty cool.
The books are amazing, sort of a steamerpunk genre.
If you get a chance to read em...Read em
