Quote from: ClaymoreJake was handling art direction for TFoB, I know the top part is a colorized woodcut from a renaissance fighting manual. I'm not sure the exact period the bottom half is inspired from.
Quote from: IrmoSpeaking of mirrored, wasn't the pic the other way round a couple of hours ago?????
Quote from: ClaymoreQuote from: IrmoSpeaking of mirrored, wasn't the pic the other way round a couple of hours ago?????Yes, and everyone was left handed a couple of hours ago :-)That's the way we got it, and I thought something was wrong, but I didn't really notice it until AFTER the webmaster put it up. I contacted him last night and we changed it first thing this morning (I don't admin the main site). I'm not sure why it was that way in the first place, but its the "right way" now.That's why I did not post a link until today.
Quote from: IrmoIt's the "right way" for the bottom picture now, but now the guys on top are left handed :)
Quote from: Jake NorwoodUse photoshop to flip the bottom half around but not the top. All done.
Quote from: taumanThe annoying thing is that when TFoB comes out, some reviewer is going to criticize the cover art--as if TFoB would be better suited to some punked-out fantasy cover, or one of the endless bland fantasy paintings.I think the colorized Meyer is fantastic. A piece of art created by someone who was "there" beats some dirty, half-naked woman in revealing, spikey armor any day. I also like the "segue" from training to the field of battle (i.e. preparing on the top, performing on the bottom). The cover looks fantastic!Steve
