Netheron Prequel Cover *Summary Update* by Vivyi Netheron Prequel Cover *Summary Update* by Vivyi

The Netheron Chronicles presents:

DRETHATHON: The Waterloo of Delicacy

The Prequel to Netheron

COMING SUMMER 2016

Summary: Netheron is at war with the revolution. Estelle’s parents have gone off to seek the war, and left Estelle Mari Violetta, their 14-year-old princess, in charge of their duties. Estelle has no desire to marry- and has successfully avoided it for years, until one day a young Drethanarian prince named Otto appears and asks for her hand. What follows an innocent proposal, turns out to be a deadly sacrifice, and soon the princess must come to a conclusion: marry the two countries together, or risk destroying her own.

I know I probably shouldn't be posting yet another picture of Marcilyn and Estelle so soon (nor give into my impulses to upload this) but I really wanted something to update my front page with c: The Netheron book is a bit outdated as you can see.

I'll be updating this with a summary later on. Right now, I can't write a summary because I have some major edits to do in terms of storyline. :XD: But once I get to punctuation and grammar, I'll most likely write a summary, haha~

Also: I FINALLY DIDN'T FAIL SEMI REALISM YES! OMG VICTORRRRRRYYYYYYY

Also: I did this all in one day! :la: AND my nanowrimo story~ I'm an overachiever, hahahahaha~

This was done with Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop CC 2014 :D

Now I hope to remember this technique for the redo of the Netheron cover, and the sequel cover! :XD:

Estelle looks suspicious while Marcilyn is sad. :ohnoes: I think their positions towards the events of this story are revealed clearly enough.

Estelle is rather suspicious looking in this x'D Hahaha, their motives are actually rather reversed in the current version of the prequel! LOL Or at least I gather that idea somehow XD

I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED, MAN! THIS LOOKS SO GOOD :la:

Also, loving the semi-realism style! Definitely suits the type of drawing style and brushwork you usually do, since the hair looks STUNNING, and Estelle's make-up (specifically, her lipstick) just pops at the viewer really nicely! 

I like the summary! It's enough to get me SUPER EXCITED, but also short enough not to reveal too much (also it doesn't look like too much of a schlepp to read to see what the book is about when you're browsing in a bookstore - some authors might have a wall of text which, if done incorrectly, can be offputting to those who don't read much). You don't assume you need to tell the reader the entire background of the world in one go, which is something I admire! (i'm working on shortening my own descriptions, which is really hard when I have dozens of characters separated into about three or four different groups/sections, which the narrative constantly switches between *sighs at my own work*)

Over all, this is a LOVELY piece of work which, not only acts as a cover, but also acts as a promotion/advertisemenr for an upcoming book! :dummy:

Ahhhhhhh THANK YOOOOOOUUUU <33333

Ahhh me too <3 I just hope I can repeat the style for the other 2 book covers, hahahaha :XD: I want them all to match! :D

Ahhhhh I'm so happy you like the summary ommmmgg <333 I tried really hard and based my summary off of popular books c; Not copying the description, but more likely the formatting. I'm happy to see that it works and sounds good! :D I've gotten really good at summarizing after a while, hahaha :D I love doing it <3 I know exactly what I'm trying to convey here, and I'm glad to see it's exciting. I'm trying to make it as accurate as I possibly can without revealing too much c; Ahhh I'm sure you'll get there one day too <33 It's really hard to summarize certain things. There's a POV of Marcilyn in this story too, which I decided I'd completely discount and focus on Estelle since she's the main character of the entire Netheron series as a whole :D

Yay! <3 Thank you again, I appreciate it c:

How did I miss this?! :noes: 

It's beautiful! :love: I love the way you draw semi-realism, it's very different from your other work but in a good way. I can't believe you finished it in a day, that's amazing! I love expressive you always draw them. This is a lovely cover for your book, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's excited about it. :D

I don't know, hahaha :XD:

Thank yoooou <333 The Semi-realism is fun... I want to do more of it, if I don't screw it up too badly LOL I'm excited too, hahaha c: The tone of the book is a lot more sad than the original, because this is Estelle we're talking here... she has a sad history :XD: I try to include a lot of cheerful scenes in the story, and plan to include Meyhra and Arvilla as comic relief. I'll be introducing them in a new short story of mine~ c:

Fascinating art style, one that I am not used to commenting on, so I thought I would give it a try, to do something new. It is good, and definitely different and unique; kind of cute and cool actually!!:D
And good luck with your book!:hug:
