Knights of Autumnland

Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
This illustration is one of 5 that my friend Jason McCarthy commissioned from me for his self-published debut novel, titled "War Drum". It is a young adult fantasy story, which I have read first, and then made paintings for, so while it had a pre-set flavour and feel to it, Jason was very open to my ideas and gave me pretty much all the artistic freedom in terms of style, composition, etc.

How was the illustration used:
print (book)

How did you make this work:
It was a fun little project, a collaboration between two young up-and-coming(?!) artists, one being the writer, the other (yours truly) as the illustrator. In terms of technique, the piece is entirelly digital, my preffered way to work, and I have experimented with a few different angels for this image, it was quite challenging to come to this conclusion that pleased the both of us.
