Cover for Long Hidden Anthology by juliedillon Cover for Long Hidden Anthology by juliedillon
This is cover art I did for the Long Hidden Anthology: Speculative Fiction From the Margins of History www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

I wanted it to kind of look like this area had been submerged for a long time but was just recently drained out (either through a mechanism or through magic), revealing hidden monuments and a path for the group to use to escape the burning city in the background.

I just keep thinking about what to say about your art, but I just can't organize whats going through my head to write it down.

This cover all on its own makes me want to buy the anthology. It makes me want to know more about the people and definitely more about the city and its ancient mechanisms and purpose, as well as makes me curious about what other stories on the same theme might be hidden in the book. :+fav:

Wow, what a beautiful picture, and the illustration book WIPS you posted are amazing too.

When do you think your book will be for sale?

It'll depend on how quickly I can get the artwork done while working around my commission work schedule, but I'm aiming for early summer. I'll be posting more solid updates as the work nears completion. :)

I favorite'd this piece a while back. I was sifting through my watched deviation stack and I noticed the profile of a face on the opening the people are running through I had not noticed before. Very clever. Simply gorgeous!

I saw this on tumblr but I only just now noticed the profile cut into the arch which was a bit startling but very cool. I noticed it after i read your description so initially it felt like a guiding force pointing the way for them, even if they were not aware themselves. Very cool art for a very cool project :D

Holy, exquisitely magnificent! The Characters look stunning and The Burning City is incredible! The expressions, poses, waterfall, water, water droplets, outfits, fire, effects, architecture, wheel/statue, atmosphere, composition, concept, uniqueness, colors, lighting, style, and other details are also wonderful! Amazingly beautiful work! :iconfantasticplz:
