Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, drumroll please … lights, camera, action! Today we present to you … wait for it … wait for it … still waiting? Ok, without further ado, here is the cover of Necromancers’ Pride – Quest for Elderstone!
*And the crowd goes wild!*
On the cover, damas y caballeros (for all my latino family), let me present to you one of our heroines. She’ll make you laugh. She’ll make you cry. She’ll steal your heart and you’ll be glad you’ve met.
Introducing Velladriana Ral!
*More wild crowd!*
No. Stop it. Please … you’re too kind.
I must say, we are very happy at the artist’s rendering of Velladriana. It was a long process to go from inception to visualization to completion of the cover itself. We had literally dozens of graphic designers submit over 120 various versions of the cover. To all the artists who contributed your time and ability in helping us find the right cover, we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts … and from the top too, for that matter.
We finally decided on the work of an amazing artist named Kinnara. D.W. and I marveled at how she was able to take our thoughts and put them on the canvas. We are thrilled at how the cover turned out. We hope you like it, as well.
Along with the cover, she is the artist who has created all of the amazing character drawings that we have been releasing each week. By the way, there are more of those weekly drawings to come, so stick around. It has been an incredible process to work with her, made even more impressive by the fact that she lives halfway around the world. You see, when you have the desire to see your dream become reality, there is truly nothing, not even various continents and a couple of oceans, that can stand in the way.
Kinnara, THANK YOU so much for lending your talent to the magic of our world!
Now, as a special gift for you, our soon to be readers … we thought, what better gift to give you than that of the story that we plan to eventually charge you all excessive amounts of money for!
