Here is my first fantasy book cover, it's called Monster Hunter:
For this cover I decided to go back to using softer brushes and more airbrushing to give a cleaner and smoother finish to the image over the harder brushes I've been using recently. I must admit I'm pretty happy with this one.
I used a more dynamic pose for the character, something you can get away with more in fantasy then most other book covers.
As for the monster in the background, I've decided that it is an ice troll that has crept up on our hero 'Hoth Wampa aka Luke's attack' style like a ninja and sprung up out of snow!
