Roseandheather is another poster's site name, and she has very strong opinions on things Honor. ;)

Viva la deferance, mon ami.

Calling roseandheather's opinions strong is rather like calling the Atlantic mildly damp. :lol:

At least over the past decade or so most publishers have gotten better about #3. I haven't seen nearly as many egregious errors (such as the wrong hair color etc) as there used to be. Baen's always been pretty good about that sort of thing.

@Genkis - as always another great cover!

Great action!

However the Protectors household colors are a variety of red and gold not the sky blue and black of the naval uniform. The assassins were wearing the uniform of the household guards! What's with the white uniforms she is not escaping from an insane asylum!

Your Nimitz is my favorite although some might call him the Hunchback of Sphinx ;)

Edited to add pic.

Erf :( I didn't find any information about their uniform...I had an hesitation about it, I wanted to contact you or Kitty but... I didn't want to disturb you... But yes, you're right, it could have been a little strange...
But with this inspiration it could have been cool, I mean, not too close from an hospital...

Cover art is a synthesis between the Artist's vision, the publisher's desires, and the limited information in the books. As we discussed on Caparelli I saw your point on civilian attire rather than a uniform. Again differences in view of the same material, I'd of made him plumper, but he was an athlete so he looks right your way too. Feel free to ask questions of me or a general post asking for help. All those who helped with the Manticorian Royal Palace feel pleased in helping with an art of yours. If you have a quick question you can always PM the Duckk he has a real handle on things Honorverse and will usually try to help you or any other fan. The French royal army wore white, as shown so did some of Napoleon's troops, culturally a white uniform may make a French buyer feel more in-tune with the Honorverse although not book correct. The artist must serve his employer and his target audience too, and you do well at it.

Is this egregious enough, biochem?
