Book cover art: Cael

This piece was a job through Cohesion Editing and Proofreading.
The client wanted a dark, brooding, vampire with just a hint of malice. Cael’s appearance went through a number of incarnations until I got his expression just right.

After doing the drawing in pencil it was coloured and textured in Photoshop to give it that “painted” finish.
What do you think of the final product? Geoff Brown’s cover design complements my artwork just so, don’t you think?
If you’d like me to provide artwork for your next cover, contact me through Cohesion.
