In anticipation of launching Wind Rider in print, I have created a new cover image. My first image struck me as cartoonish once I starred pruning it out and looking at proofs . This time I chose to go with an image I created originally for the header of my website.
This is an image of pyramid cave, one of the red smoke seeps in the book. It started as a base photo of a cave mouth. The result came many many layers later.
My concern is that I have been too close to it. So I want you to tell me your thoughts. What do you think of the art? What does it lead you to expect inside the book?
