Darklaw | The Spark Becomes a Flame Cover Detail
Detail of the seventh cover image for a series of Darklaw Stories.
Painting separate figures is one thing. Entwining those figure and showing their skin impact is the challenge. Here, Avestine’s lips and fingers clasping Kami’s flesh. Having layers allows working to the edge of each object with smearing.
I like the natural skin tones but thought lamplight could add more depth and brighten the image, so I added a layer of yellow.
