Palace of the Damned

Here are some stages from the cover of Darren Shan’s next book, the third in
the Saga of Larten Crepsley. They are always quite demanding, because of the
limited space (2 thirds of the image will be taken up with the title, etc.)
and the need to adhere closely to the scene description. I tend to use
buckets of Artistic License for covers, and treat them more as a design
rather than an illustration, but it’s nice to do something a bit ‘old
school’ now and again.
The first image is more or less what will appear on the shelves in October,
having been ‘de-pinked’ from the previous version.
