I think The Tombs of Atuan is my favourite of Ursula Le Guin's magnificent Earthsea saga. Certainly it's the one that haunts my imagination the most. To mark the book's 50th anniversary I painted this re-imagined cover.
You can see another Earthsea-inspired piece, 'The Dragons' Run' here.
My work often combines hand drawn elements with digital painting. Here, I used parts of my original ink sketch and also painted the background textures using gouache.
