Gladly: below the cut is the cover art for my book TITANS OF CHAOS, which I use for my wallpaper.
The art is by Scott Fisher, who outperformed even his considerable skills.
The main character, Amelia Windrose, was one I also drew many sketches of — I have a whole notebook at home full of them — was drawn here by Mr. Fisher, who never saw or heard rumor of this notebook, and who nonetheless drew the same features I did for the character.
Odd, no?
It is both (1) an advertisement to anyone peering over my shoulder at my computer, and (2) a pretty picture of a pretty girl for whom I feel both (a) the fatherly pride of creation, since I invented her, and, antithetically, (b) the innocent philogynous admiration of a fanboy, for whom most science fiction covers featuring attractive space princesses in postures of ecstasy are drawn.
