King of Assassins

Cover Illustration for Jenna Rhodes
"King of Assassins"

Preliminary sketches

Presentation sketch in black and white

Color comprehensive

Final finished art in acrylics on gessoed illustration board.  Some colored pencil just for back ground texture, and graphite pencil for strengthening borders.  Jenna has created a wonderful fantasy world with several races, a breathtaking sense of urgency, frightening magic, and strong characters full of hopes, desires, humor and love.  A joy to read, and I'm only getting the unedited manuscripts!

Happy Solstice!
