Cover 3 sees the addition of the main character’s robe. It’s the identical design to what I had drawn on him on the original cover for book 1 years ago (she was pretty specific about the way the robe looked). I got to explore some fun things with this one, too. I added a canvas texture that I manipulated and warped using Clip Studio’s new liquify tool, as well as tried out some different painting techniques. It was also a good excuse to play around with making all those gems shine and glow and reflect.
I also shifted the day a tad later, adding some warm sunset colors and lighting effects.
