The long awaited cover art for the long awaited 5th novel by Kristen Britain! This will be featured on the UK (and elsewhere) edition of "Mirror Sight," published by Orion Group/Gollancz in London.
I'd forgotten about this until DonatoArts official US edition cover art caught my eye:
For those wondering what's up with the winged horses/lack of narrative tendency with the UK covers, it was the publisher's decision to go with a more symbolic motif: In this case, the winged horse brooch that Karigan wears. Simple as that!
Graphite on Bristol vellum, roughly 14x17 inches (35.5 x 43 cm)

This is absolutaly beautiful :'3. I'm hesitant to ask but... c-coould you make me a p-pair of wings as beautiful as this?
I love these winged-horse covers of yours. Some of the most beautiful artwork I've ever seen in my life. *____* I would love to have a collage-poster of the whole set!
I love this book series and I can't think of anyone more appropriate than you to do the art. Beautiful! I'm going to make sure I get a copy with your art for the cover.
Love the wings!
This is superb! The pose is full of so much action!
Damn...this is next level...awesome dude
That is awesome!
It's so beautiful *o* Wonderful work!!!
Absolutely stunning textures and attention to detail!
I love these cover designs! Absolutely elegant. You must be thrilled to have been chosen as the artist for this series.
very beautiful ^^
oh my! so splendid this is!
Beautiful details on both the horse and the wings! I have all the books with the American covers but I think I like the simplicity and power of your versions better. Really catches the eye
Just when I thought I'm good...back on the ground again
Wow, this is really beautiful! And it gave me a whole new look on book covers; I've been thinking of designing a cover for my own book, and I haven't thought of a more symbolic design until I saw this. So, thank you very much!
Wow, the detail is very impressive ; O ;
^A new blog I started with personal posts, recipe ideas, and DIY and crafting tutorials. It would be amazing if you could check it out and tell me what you think! I just posted up a tutorial on how to paint a clay Angry Bird. Stay tuned for more, and thank you for reading!
I wish I could draw like this but my artistic ability isn't up to par yet hahaha, I'm still learning.
You are so good at drawing Pegasus!
i love this, this would be me and my wild side. love this so much.
You just made my day. Not only is the cover art lovely, but I hadn't heard in a long while when Kristen Britain was going to release the fifth book. Double win for a Friday!
Yep, I think it's set for release sometime in May? Thank you! I'm expecting to continue cover work for any future titles in the series.
Wow, this is an incredibly great work with pencil! These details are just amazing. Very beautiful (:
Wow so detailed! O.O
Beautiful details, the crosshatching is simply outstanding. Oh so stunning work!
I'm sorry but I've seen this before years ago...when did you draw this?
nevermind, I just went into yoru gallery and found the same Pegasus drawing i recall from years ago. happy to know you are the same artist! XD
Beautifully done, April!
Gorgeous. I love your soft yet confident and perfect lines.
Thank you! I have a habit of drawing really light, so this was an exercise in getting darker tones where they needed to be!
Oh, it's fantastic! I have any words. You are a master, Author!
no words can describe this...
