Darklaw | The Lost Daughter Cover Detail
Detail of the eleventh cover image for a series of Darklaw Stories.
I was excited to paint a scene from an entirely different part of the fantasy world, a snowy peak with a temple of disciples. This gave me a different color palette and lighting. I created the painting with my usual warm tones but then played with screens of varying colors and opaqueness until I got the ethereal quality I wanted for this scene at the top of the world.
I also got to paint a girl. Children’s proportions are quite different from adults — larger head and eyes, small jaw, rounded features. Avesha is on the edge of puberty, but she’s also a god, so she’s supposed to look older than her age. I hope the resemblance to her mother, Avestine, is clear. Maybe also, her father?
