Land of the Blind by OmeN2501 Land of the Blind by OmeN2501
Another book cover I did for Fabryka Slow. Drawing against artistic block is never fun yet - you have job to do. And that's the story with that picture. I did like 6 different versions and still I'm not completely happy about it, but I had to finish it due to deadline. Few photo mix used in texturing background and flame effect

As always crits and comments most welcome

I hear you about the deadline. Not that I'm a professional artist in any way, shape or form, but I do remember college papers. There's never a point where you feel that you've read and written everything. 

As for the man standing on the "Here there be Dragons" bit of the map: I'm getting strong "though shall no pass" vibes from him. I like the fireball, I like the rather unpleasant looking swamp (somehow, it makes it feel more real, or more intense) and the detailed background. And of course the light / shadow contrast created by the flame! I'm absolutely sure that's why wizards like to do that. Drama queens, the lot of them.

I can see the Jack Black in it now I've read the comments, but I wouldn't say they're more than 20% alike.

Way cool by the way. My favorite of all things I've favourited :D

He looks like Jack Black. Very funny in a way. Kinda like Jack Black going heroic (sword from different epoch) Jack Sparrow who also does magic. Incoherent but charming. Is it made for a book that Fabryka Slow published? Which one?
