:D Yeah!  Have you met the Erin Hunter's?
DreamworldStudio Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014  Professional General Artist
Nope! I haven't...I work from home in the US and only venture to a few cons per year, so yea, that doesn't lend itself to meeting them very well...that and I believe only one of them lives in the US, making their con or bookstore appearances VERY limited ^_^;;;

You illustrated the Rise of Scourge and Seekers manga, wow! I have a question, there was supposed to be a third Seekers manga, but due to Tokyopop shutting down for a while, I think it was canceled. Do you know if Lusa's Tale will ever be published?
DreamworldStudio Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014  Professional General Artist
Yup! I did! :D

Unfortunately, because Tokyopop shut down it's US office, both TP AND Harper Collins cancelled the series and along with that, the third book :( while the cover was completed, there was no third book completed or published.

I love the way you drew Scourge, who knew evil characters could look so fluffy and cute? XD

Aw, that's a bummer. :( I was really hoping that since they reopened the US office [I'm pretty sure], that they would have thought about publishing it again. The cover did look fantastic though, I envy your drawing skills.
