let's dance

5.27.2012


I started a tumblr - which will likely mirror what I post on my blog, but I may repost older work there to serve as an all-purpose place to host images. Here's the link : http://scottaltmann.tumblr.com/

I also update my Store with some originals. If there are any prints that you don't see listed in the store, please feel free to email me and I will likely be able to get it done.

For some images here are some two Young Adult book covers:

Following the Sword of Light cover, here is book #2: Lance of Truth by Katherine Roberts:




Also here is the first wraparound cover for a new series I am doing for ABDO / Magic Wagon
titled "Adventures in Extreme Reading: Hack Attack ". I'm only through Book 1 but I am really liking this series so far:

After the cover, I was asked by Templar to create some character designs/ images for promotion and such. This was really fun , and I wish publishers did this with every book. It's really great being able to explore characters that you might not get the chance to illustrate for the cover.

I also have to give Katherine Roberts and the fine folks at Templar UK praise for the character development of Rhianna.  This is one of the few times that I have ever been asked to make a character less attractive and a bit grittier. You can see the development in the top sketches below. 

Thanks for stopping in!

Pendragon Legacy  : Sword of Light
This is the first book in a series I am working on for Templar UK.  Excited to see how this reproduces, since they were planning on using acetate overlays and other fancy packaging.  Thanks for checking in!
