This is the final cover for a book I mentioned back in July 2012, when I posted the color comp. It’s for an upcoming self-published alternative, more adult version of the classic fairytale in which Beauty is replaced by… well… Brendan! (though Beauty is in the story as his sister). Painted digitally on Adobe Photoshop. More info on the author’s site here: http://brendanandthebeast.wordpress.com/.
I read the entire novel and found it very enjoyable and well written! Excited to someday see it in book form.
