Cover reveal: As Black As Ice

Dear visitors of this website, it has been a while since I did a blogpost, that’s because, besides much work, I have traveled to France and Portugal, to attend two Computer Graphics events with focus on Concept Art/VFX/Animation and 3Dart, I worked and studied at these events – which were a great place to be since I live out of digital illustration/concept art.

Now, onto Gothic Books… Today I am revealing to you the cover of ‘AS Black As Ice’ – the final part of ‘As Cold As Thorns’ novel. I painted it myself and hope you enjoy it 🙂

Human Voices | Clare Diston

As of the 1st of October, Human Voices – as a full-time venture – is now 2 years old!

Human Voices has been officially up and running since October 2011, and almost 4 years to the day after I started the business, I quit my job to become a full-time freelancer. This has been my only job for 2 years now, and I couldn’t be more pleased!

Henrique, the protagonist, goes through a transformation, from a bright artistic mind and kind, cordial man to someone cold, tormented and shrouded in darkness. Is it love, madness or something else inflicting him this pain and twisted state of mind? Read more
