Artwork Description

This product was to take place in underground stone caverns, so I got a lot of reference material on caves and caverns. It was a blast painting it all!

The face of Firiona, the main character, was quite a challenge. I had to stay "on model" but had no access to the original model used on previous covers. Also, she had never been painted from this angle before! After a couple of false starts, I finally ended up painting her face in PhotoShop so I could get approval from the client without having to paint then photograph the painting and send it. Once the P.S. version was approved, I copied it in paint here. Much easier than multiple painted versions.

Patrick, great painting. The composition
really works well. I like the use of foreground, middle and background and still keeping emphasis on the main characters. Great!

Well, that's what I say whenever I look at YOUR gallery, John, so I'll just say "thanks"!

Not sure what to write here Patrick so I'll just say "WOW"

Art at its best.
