Hey there, I have been so lazy these past weeks that I couldn't submit anything, let me make it up to you
I made this guy for the cover of the Dragon Chronicles series by Susan Fletcher, Ancient, Strange & Lovely. [link]
This one is for the paperback edition.
They originally asked for a dark creature in a dark cave setting but eventually they found the cover too "dark", so then I had to come up with a brand new approach. But the first cover didn't go to drain, I polished it up nice and clean and I will submit it next week.
Oh, and here's what the final cover look like: [link]
