Perfect Mercy book. Read 4 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Mercy Hamilton has the perfect life. She's gorgeous, has amazing fashi. Editorial Reviews. From the Author. Writing Perfect Mercy was the fulfilment of a life dream to write a fiction novel. I never thought I could write fiction as I was too.
Being an ongoing series also provides an opportunity to really develop the character much further than a single image permits. Mercy may be tough and proud on one cover, and yet sexy and vulnerable on the next. This goes a long way to making Mercy feel like a real person. Because the covers are printed with a metallic spot coating over the background, I have a lot of compositional restrictions. This is particularly challenging when painting hair.
There is a fine balance between consistency and redundancy when working on a series.
You want the whole series to look good together and have consistent themes that run throughout, yet you also need to ensure that every cover looks distinctly different than the last. On this particular series, we decided to maintain consistency through the use of the metallic background and the actual composition. This is no accident. It was actually a request of the Art Director, ensuring that the covers maintained a steady look. Given that restriction, I need to pay close attention to the manner in which I pose the figure, as well as the overall color scheme of the cover in order to make sure each one looks different than the last.
The image had so much buzz about it, do you think that affected you artistically or professionally? Prior to the Mercy Thompson series, John Jude Palencar had done some brilliant covers for the Kushiel series, which depicted a woman with a large, prominent tattoo. Apparently it struck a chord with people, because I became absolutely inundated with requests for tattoo-centric jobs.
I literally could have painted nothing but tattooed people for a full year. I accepted a few of the sweeter ones some of which remain my personal favorites , but I really did have to make a concerted effort not to accept too many of them for fear of typecasting myself. Aside from the type of job, the popularity of the series has actually affected the quality of jobs I receive as well. So much of creating a striking cover comes down to what the publisher does after the painting is complete. One might argue that it is even more important than the painting itself.
When a publisher expects that a book will debut at the top of the bestseller list, they are much more inclined to throw money at the project. This means I can spend more time on the painting, and that the image is going to get extra special treatment when it comes to type design, print quality, advertising, point of purchase displays, etc. Irene Gallo is the art director for Tor Books.
