Offspring Cover by kerembeyit Offspring Cover by kerembeyit
Cover art for the upcoming book named Offspring (The Sword of the Dragon Book 2) by Scott Appleton [link]

The book will be published in in Spring 2011.

Originally I didn't go with that costume and made the sword differently, here's the first sketch:

But the author was strict about his descriptions so the first version turned out like this:

Finally they thought the backlights drew too much attention so I turned this into a night scene.

Enjoy!

Note: I used reference for the cave.

I noticed on the author's site that he asked you to redo the cover because this one seemed to "sexually provocative". Personally I see nothing sexual about the image. Maybe I'm just blind to it or it's just the probably over rantings of a conservative soccer mom. Though as said I see nothing wrong with the cover.

That aside, fantastic work on this one and the new cover, as well as the one for Key of Living Fire.

Wow, this is so beautiful. I read the first book, and I'm looking forward to reading this one as well. I love the final version; it looks good as a night scene. Though, I have to admit, I like your original costume design, even if it doesn't fit with the story.
