A Melody of Three – Fantasy Book Cover
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Sean Counley | Share link: http://illo.cc/86588

I am super stoked to get my copies of the book, A Melody of Three, by Stephen Reeves through the post. I thoroughly enjoyed working on the cover, which was done traditionally in acrylics with some post digital work. Stephen approached me through Hire an Illustrator and this was one of the first clients I had after joining the site. He is a great author to work with, as was Mark at Sulis International, the publisher. They, along with HAI made the whole experience enjoyable, I would like to say that if you are reading this and considering becoming a member of this great community just don’t hesitate it is very well worth it!

I have attached some preliminary sketch work so that you can see a little of the process. As a bonus I was really chuffed that Stephen also purchased the original painting… a benefit of working traditionally :).

I love finding the character in a book cover, in a creature and, of course, in a person. Digging into the colour, the pose and the expression and pulling it all together to be caug… Show more.
