The second of two book covers I painted for Simon & Schuster - Caro King’s Seven Sorcerers and also the sequel Shadow Spell.

I painted these last year and it's nice to finally be able to share them. This is my favourite out of the two!

This reminds me so much of Serpents Shadow by Rick Riordan, especially with the snake and the girl looks like the main character Sadie, especially with that amulet.

O.O This is amazing!! It looks almost exactly like the main character in one of my fantasy stories-- except my character's hair is longer and darker, and she has one blue eye.
But aside from that, this is so detailed and lifelike!!! :D

wonderful illustration indeed. That cat really jumps out.
superb rendering, the entire scene has a very 3D feel to it.
