ELRIC: TSOS Sneak Peek #3

"Elric & Cymoril" -- interior illustration from Michael Moorcock's forthcoming ELRIC: THE STEALER OF SOULS, due out February 19 from Ballantine/Del Rey. Pencil on Crescent illustration board, 14"x11".

John - I think this is my favorite of the Elric illustrations. The subtlety of the pencil work is amazing, particularly when seen up close. The other pictures are great and energetic but the power of this one lies in the calm and the expression on Elric's face.

Thanks, Scott -- I really appreciate it. I think this was the first interior drawing that featured Elric that I completed. Glad you dig it.

I agree with Scott too, this is the best rendition of him, at least for me shows he can control himself, is contained and absorbed in the delicate task at hand; you know, like tiger carrying pups between its jaws kinda attitude, XD
