“Basically it’s piecing together different nendoroids (which is the name for these particular chibi style of figures) to look as close to the cover character as possible. Then I pose them and photograph them. Finally I photoshop them onto a background to complete the cover art. And that’s what I call them, ‘Cover Art’ kind of like a cover/remake of a song but of a cover of a book instead. So really it’s a cover cover.”

Do you have some Lightbringer or Night Angel fan art or tattoos you’d like to share? Have you been hoping to show off your drawings of Teia? The Color Prince? Or are you eager to show off your ka’kari tattoo/real ka’kari*?
If so, we’ll be doing a fan art and tattoo roundup on the website. We have a few entries already and would love some more!
Send your original artwork to CAPSLOCK @ brentweeks.com (no spaces) by Monday, July 8th at 5pm Pacific Standard Time. We’ll be sharing the fan art over the next month (thanks to Peter V. Brett for the great idea).
In addition, one fan artist at random will receive a free signed copy of the new Black Prism trade paperback, due out July 23rd, and we’ll also be giving away whatever assorted goodies we can come up with.
*If you have a real ka’kari, I’m still in the market for silver, brown, blue, and green.
