This is my cover for Warrior's Touch (book 2) in Deb E. Howell's Deadly touch series.
It's a pleasure to work with Deb E. Howell on this series, it's very much a collaborative process and satisfying to be able to work so closely with the author on their work.
Spent a very long time painting this one trying to get the mood and their expressions just how I wanted. There's a very strong bond between these two characters and I really wanted to get that feeling of "us against the world" into the cover. Tried to get as much storytelling as I could just using their posture and expressions alone. I really enjoy character focused pieces like this.
