Book Covers 101
Illustrated by Michael Whelan, this images appears on the cover of Skybowl by Melanie Rawn (Dragon Star #3). For the longest time, it was my favorite book cover, and I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve tried to recreate it; colored pencil, acrylic, watercolor – you name it (they all sucked lol). It wasn’t until recently that I noticed the dragon looks a bit like the giant cockroach alien on Men in Black… Takes away a little of the appeal, know?
For what it’s worth, this is the final book in a fairly decent series of two trilogies (overall 3/5 stars). The first book is Dragon Prince, and I think they’re worthwhile reads provided you’ve already read the other excellent dragon titles out there (see Niki’s Best Book Bulletin: Dragons!).
