Way of Shadows book cover by Invader-Shi Way of Shadows book cover by Invader-Shi
Wow, I drew this what seems like forever ago. I drew this up in probably thirty minutes (Hence the absolutely horrible looking face ^^; ) and put only a faint amount of actual effort to make it good. Surprisingly, it's one of my most favorite drawings, now. xD
I absolutely love how the background turned out. I doubted I would be able to do it.

If you haven't read this book, I recommend it very strongly. This is a book that you actually can judge by it's cover. :giggle:
I read perhaps maybe two pages and I was hooked. For something I just randomly picked off of the shelves because it looked cool, this was one helluva book!
It's not something I recommend to younger readers, though.
Here's the link to the author's site if you're interested: [link]

Great drawing xD I'm on the first book but it's soooo cool how the book deals with real world problems. It doesn't hide any of the gruesome stuff. Kylar is a great character too, lol xD

Wow, looks great, especially the background and his face :D I always thought the covers for that series of books looked so much like Altair's poses, they're almost exactly the same.

This drawing is amazing. I think they should've done something like this for the final draft. The cover looks too digital-esque(It's freakin' hot and I can't think straight, cut me some slack) for me.

Thank you. ^^
I like the cover. In fact, it's what attracted me into taking a peek at what it was about. I'm glad I did. The story was amazing.
The only thing I didn't like were the little thing like "A killer has no friends, only targets" and whatnot. They could have put something better.

I agree with that. I did think that was a little...cheesy -.-'

Yeah.
I tried suggesting the series to the book club at my school, but when the librarian read it, I think any interest anyone had in it was shot at that point.
Another reason why I think the cover could do without.

Did she read past the cover? Even then, if it's for school, I can't say they'd recommend something that has a guy with a knife on the cover, although it'd be cool.

I've seen worse books in my library.

She didn't. She just handed it back to me after that.

Then again, I never go to my school's library because I'm always too busy XD

It's true. I draw really fast.
I would have done better if I hadn't decided to spend such little time on it.

Wow you've shaded it so well! It's awesome :D It's always surprised me how similar the covers of those books are to Altair's poses.

That is actually the exact way that I found the night angle trilogy and one month later I have 30 pages left on the last book! Defiantly a good read, and i don't want it to end just yet.

I think I might like the last book most of all. I just finished it today in class.
I almost embarrassed myself while reading the book many times. *chuckles*
The series really is good. I'm actually going through and reading the entire series all over again. (I didn't even do that with Phantom of the Opera, which is now moved to my second favorite)

If I ever find the time, I should have lots of pictures from the stories. I just need a new sketchbook first. (I draw too much -_- )

Yes it is. I was the same way when I read it.
This is one of my favorite books, right along with Phantom of the Opera.

Ah! I can't believe I didn't think that before myself!
Unfortunately, whoever they'd have as the director would surely end up messing the whole thing up beyond recognition.
But if they didn't mess it up, that would be killer!

gouf753 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009
now that i think about it it would be a major killer not lol but if they got a great director one who understands the books i think he/she would be a great movie but who do you think would be able to directed it ????

Well, If i actually become serious about it, I might go to one of the colleges I'm looking into and go through a film making course.
If/when I do so, I'm certainly going to have to put the Night Angel trilogy on my list of must make movies. *does cheesy anime pose*
I dunno many directors, but out of the ones I know, I'd choose Peter Jackson. He did an amazing job with Lord of the Rings, so I'm sure he'd make an amazing movie of the books.

gouf753 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
i was think about peter jackson as well
that sound cool it would be cool if you did that
but the sad part about all of this is that even tho the book are great they arent that well knowing so people may never make a movie because just on that fact but i still have hope for the trilogy becoming a movie.

Well, they only just came out.
*determined pose*
We must go around and get as many people interested in the series as we can!
Not just for the sake of the possibility of a movie, but because the books are teh awesomeness! x3

I made the same comment to my friends. Funny thing was, I was wearing my Assassin's Creed shirt, so we ended up comparing them. They really are close.

I'm really glad you like my art. I don't get too many compliments these days. It really lifts my spirits.
