cover rework

The Secret of the Sacred Scarab author, Fiona Ingram has been taken on by a local book distributor and publisher. So further books in her series will be printed locally which will be so much better than doing it remotely. The distributor was not a fan of the original cover (not done by me) and so Fiona asked me to come up with a new cover. They wanted a sense of action and mystery. Hopefully this is what we’ve achieved.

I painted the scene in two pieces, firstly, the boy in the columned hall and secondly, the scarab. This so that I could use Photoshop to add in the glow that was necessary.

It was also fun to paint some details for the back cover, like these camels.

Let me know how you like it! I have already started sketches for the cover of the new book… more to be revealed soon.
