Here is a cover art for the tremendous book " Perdido street station" by China Mieville for the french reedition of the book. Its universe lies between future steampunk, and Lovecraft's world.
This pic will be divided in two covers and the top of the illustration will be hidden by a grey area on which will lie the titles.
I hope you'll like it.
Thats just great!
It would be nice if you could give us some information about the technique or just post some more work.
ore a tutorial

haha at first I just scrolled passed your text and was like "ah shit he fucked up some good painting with a hideous composition" but quickly afterwords I realized it would be divided and then I read your text explaining that very thing.
Hard to crit if anything I'd say the character to the right is maybe a bit stiff and akward, Other than that nice pallete, rendering, compo etc
nice. that's pretty much how i always pictured the wife... except maybe a little more oozy :-D
Wow, the cityscape looks fantastic. The woman (forget her name) and the garuda not so much i'm afraid. But everyone's probably's got their own definitive vision on what they should look like i guess.
Thanks mates for those kind comments.
About the making-ff, I just started with a simple drawing with a pencil, and then I colorized he whole illustration in photoshop.
I feel the same about the woman (Lin), but I just didn't manage to make it better. I'll try my best next time
I'm affraid the garuda may need some more sophistication, but I found it quite "illustrative" of what I figured out while reading the book.
Thanks again for your replies!
youre figures dont look quite like theyre standing in the picture, but the background is awsome. post more!
Beautyful Perspective.....but i don't digg the characters.....I don't feel it's part of the illustration ! but nice colors and perspective!
