The Song of the Summer King by Nambroth The Song of the Summer King by Nambroth
This painting is the full spread dust jacket for the upcoming novel, "The Song of the Summer King" By Jess E. Owen!

This long format includes the actual cover, the spine, the back of the book, and the two flaps that fold inside the covers.

Painted in Corel Painter, mostly Oil Pastel tool. The original is 8,500 pixels wide and it took me approximately eleventy billion hours to paint it all on one layer.

Yes-- this book is about gryphons. A Gryphon is the main character. :)

This book is available as an e-book, and will be coming out in hardcover this fall! See it on Amazon: [link]
