I've completed five promo illustrations, which Overlook will release every Monday until The Great Ordeal is available on July 12.  They just published the first one today.  This is it.

No whistling on the slog!

Almost looks completely different than the other stuff you've done before.

Looks awesome, Som! I can't wait to see the other ones.

And congrats again. Looks a little more legit than semi ;).

Congratulations again on your promos.

That first one looks great, awesome job.
Do you have a link where it's originally posted? And/or a link to a high res file?
Found it all on your page. nvm.

Unless Serwe has a beard, it looks like she isn't the head on the pole...

Did Kellhus start having a plaited beard in Warrior Prophet or TTH?

Originally posted on Overlook's twitter it looks like. Perhaps Somnambulist has it on his .com or DeviantArt?

I'm fairly positive that Somnambulist has complete creative control over these images so they'll likely reflect his interpretation of the text ;).

Kellhus, I believe, starts appropriating Kyraneas and Cenian cultural beard-styles in TTT.

Almost looks completely different than the other stuff you've done before.

I like to kid myself I'm improving and/or closing in on a style which I personally like, or at least don't hate.

Looks awesome, Som! I can't wait to see the other ones.

And congrats again. Looks a little more legit than semi ;).

Thanks, man!

Thanks again!  Yes, Overlook will get to share them first via their twitter account.  As soon as they do that, I'll spread them around my own accounts.  And yes, hi-res images are available on my deviantArt account. http://spiralhorizon.deviantart.com/art/Final-TGOpromo-1-615090320

And also correct, I had complete autonomy with these, from choosing the scene, to the quote, to the layout/graphics/etc.  So, if you like them, it's all me.  And I guess if you hate them, it's all me, too.

For clarity, that means you didn't have any knowledge or information above and beyond what exists in TGO (or, at least, in the ARC).

That's awesome, Som! I sincerely hope and pray that you see some success, promotion, hell anything that would show appreciation for your skills. And, having read the ARC, that is a great promotional that doesn't give anything away, yet gets you all giddy inside. Great Job, again!

ETA: Not saying being the one to do all of this isn't honor enough.....just hope that bigger and brighter things come with it. You've earned it. Man, I am bad at internet-speak......

“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Gorgeous! And an especially good image for me, still wondering about that creepy passage.
