Aleksei Parker’s new novel with my fantasy cover art
I’m really pleased to have got the call from Aleksei Parker to work on the fantasy cover art for her novel, Lamorra- Sorceress of Destiny. Aleksei gave some fantastic character descriptions for me to follow, I particularly like her beast companion, Nyx.
For this composition, I wanted to do something a little more abstract. I had a similar epic landscape vibe when I did the cover for The Prince and the Witch back in January, but this time I wanted to have the characters more prominent. I really enjoyed structuring the very apparent foreground, midground and background, while adding the characters in as the main feature.
As you can see from the sketch below, Aleksei and I were pretty much on the same page from the onset, and only minor details changed before fully rendering the image above.

Share the love!
I love my job. I’ve always wanted to be an artist working on fantasy settings, creating world that give people real escapism and suspend their disbelief. One of the things I absolutely love though, is the interaction with people who are following along with what I’m doing. Hearing comments, and seeing my work make it’s way around the world makes me so happy!
