Collegium Chronicles: Bastion

My Drawing Board 

I turned this in yesterday.  A cover for Mercedes Lackey's new novel in the Collegium Chronicles for the good folks at DAW Books.  In the upper right you can see my color comp and below that my now 17 year old son posing for me as Mags, the Herald trainee at the center of this series.  Oils on illustration board for the painting and a digital background of silver horses and arrows done in Photoshop.  I'm not sure when this is coming out, as Misty is in the midst of writing it!

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous (as always ^-^) I love how you do drapery for clothes, and especially love the lighting in this particular piece.
