I was one of a few people commissioned to do a book cover for a local author, out of which he chose one to use as a cover, sadly mine wasn't used but I was paid pretty well so I ain't complaining. :D

This illustration is probably one that I've spent the most hours on, with all of the background work and revisions to different parts.

I just realized I never shared it here!

Wow, cool

The composition and the level of details are outstanding. The rifle on the bear rider could use some highlight to pop-out from the character. But overall looks absolutely good for a cover book. Sorry it didn't make itself in. Still, could you give me some insight and how the experience would look like doing illustration work for a book cover? Cause I'm doing mine as well. Thanks and keep up amazing work like this one!

Hey thank you! I appreciate that! Basically you need to illustrate it as two separate halves that are cohesive as one larger image. So the right side is meant to be the front of the cover of the book and the left side would be the back cover. Also, this cover illustrates a pivotal moment in the book's story, so that's another thing you want to keep in mind when deciding what you'll draw for your cover. It doesn't have to represent a pivotal moment, but something that will resonate with those who have read it, yet still appeal and interest those who don't know anything about the story, something to draw them in. Hopefully that gives you a little better insight into it! Good luck on your book!

well that's dope my dude
