Mirror Sight: Cover Art by pallanoph Mirror Sight: Cover Art by pallanoph
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: 
Mirror Sight by DonatoArts

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)

Art April Schumacher. All rights reserved. Do not plagiarize, use without permission, use for profit, etc. 

dA desperately needs a sub gallery for cover art. BUT I GUESS I'M JUST NEEDY. *runs away*

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!  :heart:

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.

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 :)

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. :love: So, thank you very much!
