Cover Reveal: The Dragon Slayer

Here is the final cover design for Jonathan Dorr’s first publication of his three part epic fantasy. I had fun creating the dragon who I imagined creeping forward like a stalking cat almost hissing at the knight. I used a fleshy salmon color for the symbol and fonts because it reminded me of raw flesh and jumped out from the contrast of the illustration. I used to really struggle with dragons but I think I am getting the hang of them pretty well now. There are parts I would have preferred to do a little differently, but in the end this is a unique cover design and illustration that stands out among the competitors on Amazon. I would appreciate your feedback as there is always room for personal improvement 🙂

Cover Reveal: Red & Restless

I had a great time illustrating this cover for Allison. She loves the final result and it had been her idea to merge the first two concepts I had provided her. As a result I think we have a bold preview of Allison’s unique book of poetry.

Below are the first two designs that were merged to create the cover above.
