Both the author and I had both agreed that this particular scene in the book should be the cover. I sketched the girl out on paper and then scanned it to my PC before digitally painting her in. The background is photomanipulated. I went with a darker, red sky to portray some sort of darker things to come versus the previous books in the series. There is some minor digital painting work done to the sky alongside some minor photomanipulation work. 2012.
