BZG BOOK 6 COVER by sadwonderland BZG BOOK 6 COVER by sadwonderland
POSTERS AVAILABLE! Check here at my Etsy store: [link]



Cover of Bizenghast Book 6, which is due out this summer!

Done with watercolor and inks. I originally did another cover long ago for this book, but it was just missing something, so I did this one, and it turned out just right!

I just wish the colors had scanned better...there's a pretty blend of greens, grays and blues in the original that my scanner just couldn't pick up. Oh well!

Book 6 has been the hardest book of all for me to do. A lot of important things happen in it, and it was difficult to write. But I think you'll like it when you read it! Now to start work on Book 7!

Credits to Leonardo da Vinci for his wing design.

I hope to cosplay Dinah in this dress soon, the wings will be fun to make, but I'm still not sure how I'd go about with the clock gears

Very steampunky. I love it!

If you don't mind me asking what materials do you use? I'm presuming water colour but what do you use for the line work and do you go over the paint after it's dry or paint over the lines after you've done them?

And, on one of the pages, I saw you left a little note, but it wasn't in Voynich. >:And I'm trying everything to figure out what it is, haha. A little hint, maybe? ;D

Just bought and read Volume 6 today, and I have to say - though I love all of your covers, I really liked this pseudo-steampunk/ DaVinci design one. All those little gears and brown swirls have me mystified.

(And, her hair looks awesome short :D)

I'm pumped for volume 7! Best of luck on your work!

Any specific kind of watercolor paint? I'm considering trying to use watercolor instead of pencils.
(though there are 'watercolor' pencils...have you used them--are the any good??)

I just finished reading this yesterday! I loooved it. It was so much more serious than the other books, with so many important things happening.. I can't wait to read the next one.
I love the cover, too. You're a very amazing artist. I'm still getting used to seeing Dinah with short hair though. She looks so different.

Lovely. Was your design based on a real fabric pattern ::crosses fingers::? I've thought about recreating her dress but I'm not sure where I would be able to find fabric with such an intricate design. Also, is pattern on the skirt and the side of the corset the same or are they different? I'm not sure if the skirt is the same pattern in a different light or two separate patterns.
