I bought the French version of Terry Pratchett's Hogfather today, and I soon as I saw the cover, I had a look at the back of the book to find out the artist's name and then I rushed to the internet to check whether you had a DeviantART gallery. I'm glad you do! This picture looks fantastic.
I seriously love your art. The first one I saw was for your cover of Wise Man's Fear, and I found it about a thousand times more glorious than the actual cover on my copy. Since then, your paintings have never disappointed.
As I can see you kept the main concept of the city though accented the mountain of Ararat instead of the main character. I definitely prefer this variant over the original one. Oh, and thanks to this picture I have one more item added to my wishlist on Amazon.
Fantastic book! I found it at random on the B&N Bookstore with my Nook, and enjoyed it immensely. I've never read anything quite like it before; the way the author treats the city of Ararat as a kind of living entity - and makes the reader feel it, too - is unique among all the books I've ever read. He has immense talent and vision.
This cover does a great job of capturing the vast, arcane, unfathomable nature of the city and the sense of freedom in the flight passages. If anyone here hasn't read The Thunderer, do it now.
