From the artists:
This book features the conceptual art of Justin Sweet and Vance Kovacs for a world they have collaborated on for nearly 20 years. The images in this book have been rendered in many different mediums, all with an intent to bring out, more than anything else, an impression that most closely reveals the feeling that was sought after. In many cases, a more rendered image will be replaced with one that emotionally reveals what we want our places and subjects to be like as opposed to literal design.
Justin and Vance are freelance artists in the film, games, entertainment, and publishing industries. Together they are the creators of Carbon Canyon Studios. A studio devoted to delivering artistically guided projects. They have been friends and collaborators for over 20 years.
What is Eclipse?
The echoes and anthems of shepherds and kings. A Well, a Boy. A Horn. A Serpent coursing a Black Sea. A River of Bones. A Daughter in Her Orchard. A Warrior Returning Home.
And above them all... an Eclipse.
Eclipse is a mature poetic fantasy filled with eclectic characters, creatures and places. This is a world that is both mythic and deeply personal to us. We’ve been struck time and time again over the years with dreams, images, and ideas that have haunted us and tugged at our hearts, some stirring and horrific, some inspiring and glorious. All these are threads, woven together by design into a tapestry that will fill the pages of this book...
