Book cover - 'Tempel van de spiegels: 1' by ElsaKroese Book cover - 'Tempel van de spiegels: 1' by ElsaKroese
This is one of the bookcovers that I've been painting last year. I don't think the book is available yet, but I think it will be this or next month... soon anyway :D.

It's the first book of a trilogy. It's written for kids (teenagers to be precise) but I found myself enjoying the read a lot (I always try to read the books that I'm illustrating for).

Painted in Photoshop, using a wacom intuos 3 (like all of my stuff really :P).

- Reference was used for the monkeys :D
- Big empty space in the sky is because of the book's title.

The cover is (c) by me and Kluitman Publishers.

Very interesting placement in this, I'm impressed!
You also did a great job on the mountains and the castle in the distance,
its simple but very detailed too, it's very pleasing to the eye.

You did a good job of showing off a potentially good story,
seeing this I'm interested in knowing what those moneys are and what she is holding,
you nailed this job.

Nee deze is meer fantasy-achtig. Het gaat over 3 jonge tempel priesteresjes die in een avontuur belanden.
