seed of eons by rtil seed of eons by rtil
[ youtube :: tumblr :: pixiv ]

this is a book cover that I was commissioned to make for a book titled "Seed of Eons" by John Salinas. While i finished this illustration almost a year ago, this book only came out recently, so I can share this with you now. The book is a digital copy you can read anywhere for only $3. Please check it out!

as an added bonus, John asked me to record myself painting it, so there is also this timelapse video.

from the description on the amazon page: 
Callen doesn't have much to look forward to. He lives in the slums of the only city in the known universe and he sees nothing but dead-end jobs working in the mines or even cleaning the sewers in his future. Making matters worse, the police are after him for launching a crude experiment off the edge of town. 

Just when it seems like all hope is lost, Callen is mysteriously transferred to the prestigious Central Academy and his family is relocated to one of the City’s luxurious residence towers. Before they can even unpack, a group of hired thugs captures Callen’s family and now he's next on their list. Callen, and his new neighbor Mayleigh, must stay one step ahead of their pursuers to rediscover their past and change the course of history.

I will never stop saying it, but the best thing about your pieces is your story telling. All the attention to detail in character design and scenery really screams story telling in your illustrations.
