Epic art work. I really like his pose and the wolf looks furious. Wonderful artwork. Well done! :D

So much red, so much anger. It's clever that you had the wolf and bloke's eyes to match, it's like they're connected. And that I can't see the rest of the wolf's body helps that thought. The clothes are so good, lots of thought put into it.

I really like it, the colors make it noticable (smart move considering it's a book cover), it almost looks handpainted to me, i am a airbrush artist myself, so i prefer the things that are actually made by analogue hands, but this has a certain handcrafted quality to it. (Didn't mean to discredit digal art, but some of is just TOO perfect and smooth to have lasting value).
Dramatic yet not overdramatic composition, which is good, I really cant find anything to point out in a negative direction here!

this pic is awesome as it looks like Geralt, but it somehow also captures the personality of a Celtic werewolf character of mine in Neverwinter Nights Online, who as unlikely as it is, is a vampire-slayer

Hm... He is Geralt? Witcher, polish 'Wiedźmin'? I can see a lot of similarity with him, like necklace. Odd.

No it's not him but the autor is a big fan of Sapkowski and even knows him personaly. The character has a lot of similarity with Geralt that's true. This picture with changed hair color was even used as a picure of geralt on Nowa Fantastyka magazine [link]

I love the flow of the red swirls around the character's head and sword. They give great emphasis on what's ahead of him. It's intentional things like that in a piece that I like, keep up the fantastic work :)

I can't give much of an advanced critique, but I can say without a doubt that this cover would catch my eye (especially if the title text is positioned in a good area).

this is amazing!! the red is so bold and eyecatching, and becomes even more entrancing when you start to notice swirls and patterns in the mist in the background.. absolutely love it!! definately one book i would pick up, even just to own that as a front cover!!

Just added this to my favourites - its classic heroic fantasy. Brilliant. His outfit looks authentic and his sword, though quite flamboyant, has the look of a practical weapon.
