Hi, here is  a cover i did for Tor, The Emperor's Blades, great story.  Super fun.  I added a few sketches of ideas for the cover and then the work in progress for the one they picked.  They wanted to show the three main characters on the cover along with what might make them individual.  Great one to work on and the very talented author Brian Staveley, wrote me saying he really enjoyed what i did with the cover, that always good to hear from the guy who wrote the book:)
cheers

Hey Richard, love your work, grabbed my attention from the moment I saw the cover of John Fultz's 'Seven Princes'. :-) Awesome stuff, thanks!
