Copyright © Lawrence Mann. Warlord of the Lonely Fortress. Fantasy book cover digital painted in Adobe Photoshop & Corel Painter.
This book cover was created from a simple description from the client and delivered on the first attempt without any changes or amends. the client was very happy. It was indeed the perfect commission for us both.
I recently finished the sequel. The description was larger and we did make some amends but it was still a very enjoyable commission. The illustration followed the same silhouette with a seated Warlord surrounded by an arch, the background symmetry and a slight curve at his feet. Some visual elements were obviously changed in line with the storytelling.
