Dragon Sword Book Cover
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link: http://illo.cc/87429

Just finished my cover illustration and design for ‘Dragon Sword – Demon’s Fire Book 1’ by Christopher Patterson. It was fun to create not only the illustration, but also design the title artwork for this book cover. For the illustration, I wanted to convey the heat and intensity of the dragon’s fire behind the knight, but also the coldness of the sword that he’s holding. The title artwork had to have a medieval feeling to it, but still be easily readable and ‘fit’ as part of the overall cover. A challenging project, but it was a lot of fun as I enjoy painting all things fantasy.

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.
