This time you can see Rhialto in his Library...

Jack Vance's works deserve no less talent than yourself. Your Rhialto is, well...magnificent.

Wow. I think I just got lost in the details.
I really like how the colors fade with distance.

Waow purée, tous les détails et la précision, c'est impressionnant ! Dommage que ça ne soit que pour une couverture, j'espère que ce sera imprimé assez grand pour pouvoir être apprécié par les lecteurs ! :)

I once roled a D&D wizard modeled after Rhialto; especially appropriate, since Gygax used Vance's magic system almost wholesale.

Good times. :)

A real lady's man.

Jack Vance's original concept was that few more than a hundred spells remained to man's knowledge and even the most highly trained minds could not memorize more than 4 of the greater spells or 6 of the lesser. Speaking a spell caused you to forget it and need to rememorize it.

Jack Vance seems to have forgotten that and now his adepts fling spells around like sunflower seeds !
