New cover art for Shard from Greeve

Here’s the new cover art and design for the electronic edition of Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve, which I’m planning to release later this month.

Many of you will recognize the illustration from the title page of the print edition of the book—it’s long been one of my favourite drawings, so I decided to feature it on the cover.

I started by doing a new version of the line art:

I then digitally coloured the illustration:

The artwork then was dropped into the layout:

However, I decided there was too much going on with the wood and tentacles and decided to just do an alternate version with just water:

You can see I made some other changes too, modifying the shape and scope of the black lightning.
