As Darkness Falls Sketch 2 (Winner)
Now this is what a book cover really looks like. When Leo presented these two options to me, I think it was the closest I ever came to actually having a blood vessel pop? I mean, how does one actually make a decision like that? In the end, we determined that this was the one we had to choose. It fills out the cover so much better, and it has that brilliant, traditional fantasy look. The dragon looks so much more imposing in this scene, and... I'm just without words after that. The fact that Leo was able to convince me away from something that I had in my mind for the last three years is bloody impressive. I'm looking very forward to seeing what the final piece looks like!
