As we ramped up to producing Luthiel’s Song book III: The Nightmares of Winter, we searched high and low for an excellent new cover artist to showcase. As usual, Deviantart has been a huge help — continuing to aid us in unearthing new and pheonomenal talent. After sending off a few queries we’ve contracted with an amazing new artist for the third Luthiel’s Song book: Sandara Tang.
But you don’t have to take my word on how talented she is. Just drop by her Deviantart page and look through some of the amazing work she’s produced: sandara.deviantart.com
Though I’m biased, it’s really tough for me to choose a favorite. Probably her rendering of the forest dragon is my top choice.
In the work-up for the third book’s cover, she’s also generously provided us with a number of concept images for characters in the series. Some of these she even drew on the packing paper for the books we shipped her! You can view these images below!
Overall, I can’t tell you how excited I am to work with Sandara as she’s produced covers for a number of books, including one to be published soon by Simon and Shuster! So please join me in welcoming Sandara and, if you have a chance, go to her Deviantart page and post some nice comments!!
