Griffin Ranger by KatieHofgard Griffin Ranger by KatieHofgard
At long last, the book cover for Roz Gibson's novel, "Griffin Ranger"!  Roz contacted me some months back asking if I would be interested in illustrating the cover for her book, if it was funded via Kickstarter.  As luck would have it the Kickstarter was a success!  I unfortunately had to pass on doing the interior illustrations due to my own time constraints, but an artist I've looked up to for ages was able to do them instead, Lyosha!  This is a crop of the cover to show as much of the action as possible.  It's actually a full wrap-around illustration, so the back cover is a continuation of the same scene.

If you're interested in a high adventure book with awesome characters, check it out on Furplanet's website - furplanet.com/shop/item.aspx?i… And you can get it at FurPlanet's table at FC this coming weekend too!

Thanks for the opportunity Roz, I ALWAYS enjoy painting gryphons!

awesome, as usual.  i adore the way you paint the translucent feathers overlapping.  and in this one, the top feathers of the dark griffin, the markings and all... especially sweet!

oh, is that um...  is it indian eagle pattern?

I like that you've put the background on a slight angle - it just helps to somehow add to the precariousness of in-flight battle.
