Very cool book cover. The intensity of the moment is captured well in this still-frame.
But, on an unrelated note, I wanted to thank you. This piece is sci-fi art has inspired me for my own book cover! I've been looking over it for the past week wondering what was 'wrong' with it, when all it really needed was to move the text to the top of the cover instead of the bottom! It was so simple it stared me in the face! I never noticed it until looking at this just now! Thanks again!
This would definitely make me pick up the book and read the back cover. I tend to judge books by the cover, cause if it has shitty art then that's what I'll see in my head the whole time I'm reading it. In this case I'd see some badass space marine looking dudes tearing shit up on the battlefield. I'm down.
