Dragon and girl color rough

The editor of that fantasy ezine got back to me about which sketch he preferred. So I colored roughed it.

This looks like a pretty decent cover. I think I need to make the corners darker. This is the roughest of roughs with the values blocked in and an idea of the background. The castle is a photo that I’m smearing paint over to make it look like I drew it. It’s a bit detailed for a background image, so I might scrap it and go with a different castle. Good thing there’s so many stock castles!

Here’s the detail of the girl.

She’s so tiny that I’m almost painting her pixel by pixel. She just has to read well from a distance.

  1. Hrm. Think I’ve visited that castle. Wouldn’t mind visiting it again, preferably in this setting though. Didn’t have a chance to admire the scenary with a dragon last time. Could be an interesting experience.
