Thomas Good

Description:

A fantasy author hired me to create this book cover illustration of his characters for his youth fantasy series of the Green Knight.

I love the challenge of designing characters from just a brief outline of a story.  The client asked me to create this in a softer pencil and digital painting style which is pretty different from my line-art driven style.  Real happy with how this turned out.

Young adventurer in a dark temple with golden skull and tiki totems.

Explorer / Adventurer Kid In Temple Book Cover

I wanted to create a an illustration as a sample to try to get work from young-adult fantasy book publishers, a market that I’d like to do more work in. I chose a scene with an adventurer in an Aztec-like jungle temple so I could draw some funny and creepy totems – and I even got to sneak a skull in there too! I like to try different styles and themes whenever I can – keeps things from getting stale. I’m happy with how this turned out, and would like to do more in this genre.
