Hey everyone!

Today I received the advanced copy of my art book! I am very pleased with the book and I can't wait for it to come out. Like I mentioned before, it will be available in the UK in October and in the US in November. Don't worry, the book will be available worldwide, so you will be able to order it from anywhere.

- $34.99
- Hardcover
- 200 Pages
- Over 300 paintings/drawings, over 100 of those have never been published or seen by the public
- Published by 3DTotal
- Foreword by Kekai Kotaki

You will be able to purchase the book from the 3DTotal site, or by going to any site like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. Actually, if you just Google "elysium the art of daarken" you will find tons of links.

Some people have asked what is inside the book. It is mainly an art book, but at the end there is a written tutorial of how I created the cover illustration. I also talk a lot about the freelance world, staff jobs, and specific paintings throughout the book.

Hopefully I can post some more previews soon and possibly a video flipping through the book. We will see what my publisher thinks. Thanks!

Man, I'm kind of interested in it but I have so much other stuff I gotta manage over the next few months, so we'll see! Great to see you releasing something like this, though!

Yep.. 100% gonna buy.
Just imagine how it'd be if they asked you to make an illustrated version of LOTR :D This book would be EPIC.
