The Name of the Wind by MarcSimonetti The Name of the Wind by MarcSimonetti
This is the French cover art for the tremendous Book "The name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss.

I Tried to be quite close to the book, in the spirit. For those who had the chance to read it, let's say this is more another vision of Kvothe's legend, that the real one.

Je ne suis pas sûre que ça compte vraiment comme une critique, mon niveau n'étant même pas comparable au votre, mais pour faire simple, votre couverture est la plus belle que l'on puisse offrir à un roman.
Bien sûr, du point de vue de la technique, on frise la perfection: la composition est bonne, l'ambiance touche juste avec des teintes qui font penser à l'automne et rappellent une certaine mélancolie, mais aussi la chaleur grâces au même couleurs, qui évoquent indéniablement la douceur et le lyrisme de certains passages. Le vent, est lui, bien présent, qui s'engouffre dans les vêtements et les cheveux de Kvothe, joue avec ceux-ci...
De plus, votre patte artistique et le talent dont vous avez fait preuve crèvent tant les yeux que je me demande encore si je ne vais pas finir aveugle.
Cinq étoiles partout donc, parce que votre couverture dégage à elle seule toute la puissance du roman. Je n'ai de ma vie jamais vue telle chose. Et d'ailleurs il faudra revoir l'adage qui dit que la couverture ne fait pas le livre, parce que dans ce cas ci, la couverture colle au bouquin telle la moule sur la roche (c'est peu lyrique mais ça me semble logique).
Comme décrire encore l'émotion qui assaille le pauvre lecteur innocent qui tombe sur le Nom du Vent?
Vous êtes doué, très, mais à mes yeux (larmoyant à force de regarder cette œuvre è_é ) cette illustration restera la plus belle de toutes vos créations. Alors comme dire? Bravo.
What do you think?

I'm so happy your artwork is the cover for the brazilian version of Kingkiller Chronicles, it's a thousand times better than the american cover in my opinion. To tell you the truth, it was because of this cover that I picked up the book in my local library and started to read it, because it was so beautiful... and that was the best decision ever, now this is my favourite book series ever.
I really hope you illustrate our version of The Doors of Stone as well:love:

Are you excited about The Name of the Wind TV show that's coming? 20th Century Fox bought up the rights. I'm sure this will give Patrick Rothfuss more incentive to finish the third book.
