Fantasy heroes book cover commission

I was contacted by author Ben Boardman to illustrate a book cover for his upcoming novel, Local Heroes. I quickly arranged a meeting over Zoom to discuss the cover. Ben’s creative description and depth to his fantasy heroes was both awesome and inspiring. I loved discussing each of their nuances. It made working on them a lot of fun. I always love the classic combo of the warrior, mage and rogue, which features above. There were some secondary characters too, which I alluded to a little in the background, but with such depth of setting we had to make sure to be focused on what featured prominently.
