Like most of my work, this cover design was initially drawn in pencil, inked using a dipped nib pen, and colored in Photoshop. I chose the imagery of the main character of the series trapped in an alleyway with the ambiguous shadow of a beast to not only literally depict the conflicts of the story, but to also reflect its underlying themes.
