Got some chills looking at both the shooting star and Falconia shots. Really clever amalgamation of recent events.

Same here.

I like how the left side is where Guts and crew are at in the story while the right is about Griffith's side. Also love how the ship, Irvine and flowers escape the usual boundaries of the outlined cover, and reminded how glorious yet ominous Falconia appears. Awesome stuff Grail (!) and congrats Rupert.
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

Grail put a lot of time and hard work into this piece for me and I'm very pleased to finally be able to unveil it here for everyone!



the coloring here is gorgeous. I really admire when an artist is able to draw profiles really well. I am not quite in a place where I can draw people from the side without them looking stupid. But I am working on it. At some point I would love to be able to draw Berserk fan art but the drawing are so detailed and I am crazy OCD about getting every line perfect that I defeat myself LOL!

I also really love the coloring. I only color with color pencil.  :farnese: I love the shadowing you put in the coloring. That can be very hard to do convincingly with just color pencil.

Yowza! Thank you everyone for the kind words, it gave me a real case of the warm fuzzies to read through them all! :slan:

I've been working hard on the art for the Patreon donors since November, and so far I've gotten a real kick out of working with Rupert and the other donors. It's a refreshing experience to work on another person's idea! I just wish that I could work faster, but judging by everyone's feedback, it clearly pays to take your time with these. :serpico:

I love it. Was this done with oil paint originally? Looks like there's some real texture to the lines.
Thanks, man. This was actually all done digitally, using mainly Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI, and a painting program I recently purchased called Clip Studio. The latter two are really useful in producing nice textures.

Got some chills looking at both the shooting star and Falconia shots. Really clever amalgamation of recent events.
I believe Rupert gets credit for that! He mapped the general layout of the composition, which saved me a lot of sketching! :ganishka:

This is such a great cover, Grail! Everything about this is awesome, and I love the textures and colors. It's nice seeing a collage cover reflecting the current status of the story. It just realized we haven't had one since about volume 25!

Thanks for sharing Rupert!

Amazing what a splash of colour can do to a picture. The strength in the distinction between her skin and "clothes" is something you can't pull off in a black and white medium. It's like i'm seeing the character for the first time again. Awesome job!

That Danan coloring is so gorgeous  :isidro:

Somehow since her transformation i always imagined her in white and light green color. But this coloring seems even more fitting, also considering the cherry blossom theme.
It's really awesome.  :ubik:
