This is the new cover of Wyldwood Fate -- the book will be coming soon! We're nearly done with the edit, and P.J. Ochlan is getting ready to record the audiobook! I'm looking forward to hearing all the crazy new voices he'll do for this one.
The artwork took me far longer than I expected. Surprisingly the hardest part was the castle -- I'd never drawn one before. I had a good idea of the landscape I wanted to put our boys in, but finding reference shots wasn't easy. I can't draw all that land strictly from memory. I need to look at stuff to remember what rocks actually look like. Chemo keeps me pretty much locked up these days -- I've been in 'lock down' for 4 years now. Luckily I have a wild imagination so I don't go stir-crazy.
I had a lot of fun with Tormy and Tyrin on this image too. They're identical of course -- but so different to draw. And of course Omen and Kyr had to get some spiffy new outfits. Omen's sword got a bit of an upgrade as well.
The image below is the full version of the Kindle cover -- I have to do a large one for the audiobook so I usually start there and crop it down for the Kindle version. I hope you all like it!
