Here is the cover art for the next two episodes of Season 2 of Serial Box’s serialised prequel to Ellen Kushner’s Riverside novels, Tremontaine!

Earlier posts:

Episode 5 had some lovely floral imagery, but fortunately Serial Box restrained me from getting too wild with kingfishers in mid-flight, and other embroidered details from the episode.

I still rather like the little Kaab middle left, and Micah, Tess and Kaab at the bottom right, but then I’m very fond of Micah.

But I was pretty happy with the final selection, and still have vague thoughts that it would make a nice crewel embroidery.

As with almost all the episodes, the final image was cut in one piece of black paper, with colour added digitally afterwards. With many of the covers I’ve selected parts to be coloured. In this case, however, the colour was simply added to spaces in the image: the black is all of the original cut-paper.

Episode 6 had some rather fabulous introductions, and I would like the chance to illustrate the opinionated, angular woman at the bottom right and middle one day.

But this image, with its flowing draperies and a chance to attempt an impression of transparency in black paper was the final selection (and a good thing, since she showed up first in the thumbnails for Episode 3, and there was a chance she’d have kept returning indefinitely).

Again, she was cut in one piece. Once the image was scanned and tidied, I chose areas to recolour.
