Fool Moon issue 3 cover by ChaseConley Fool Moon issue 3 cover by ChaseConley
Heres the cover for The Dresden Files: Fool Moon issue #3

I painted this up a few months ago now, I would have done a few things differently now, but I still like it. I went back a few weeks ago and did some much needed airbrushing. I have a horrible habit of leaving too many hard edges on my brush strokes. It takes away from the piece in a lot of cases.

Thanks to :iconmonk-art: for helping me balance the colors and such.
That's Lt. Karrin Murphy with the police issue beretta, the werewolf (pretty obvious) and Harry's mother's spirit floating behind him.
I'll update the description later, I've been trying to catch up on commissions and Dresden pages.

I have been currently staring literally agape at this beauty. Love Maggie, love the wolf, and don't even get me started on Harry. His pose and expression look amazing. Great job!

I was so excited when I found you were illustrating the comic of my favourite book series! I'm really enjoying the animation work you're doing now, I hope it's all going well

*Flips a table out of jealousy of skill. Draws more out of determination to get better. Buys the book out of admiration of both the artist and story*

That's a really nice Murphy, pretty close to how I imagine her. And the colors look great!

You do some of my favorite Dresden art. I really like your Murphy. Also You're colors are fantastic! Beautifully painted. Only thing is that because of the perspective and lack of light on his pants the perspective takes a moment to get. So for a moment it makes him look very short. and there is a glob of purple under his mothers left hand that does not look like its supposed to be there. but I think I really only saw that because I was looking :D

Oooh. I like this one. It may be my favorite cover to date. I especially love the downward angle with the skull at the bottom. And the colors look fabulous!
