Necromancer Book Cover Illustration
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link:

Here’s a recent book cover commission that I created, entitled The Necromancer. This was a fun cover to paint for a couple of reasons. First, I’ve never painted a Necromancer so in order to get the character right I kinda had to mash-up a few ideas to get the right look. And second, I forced myself to go with a colour scheme that I wouldn’t normally choose to just push the envelope a bit. I think the finished result has the energy of a great sketch coupled with a believable character design.

Working with Simon was wonderful. He communicated very quickly and clearly, paid amazing attention to detail, and really made sure to capture the feel we were looking for in a picture. Incredibly talented artist and overall great person.
