This is the third in a series of covers I was asked to produce for “The Planar Cycle” series by Chamberlain Potts.
An incredible fantasy that gave me lots of amazing imagery to work with. Here I depicted “The Bleeding Elm“. A thirty-foot gnarly leafless tree with an abnormally thick truck. They’re covered in thick thorns and have vines that run along the ground to capture and impale anything that ventures too close onto the trunk. Along with the Cymarion in the foreground. I always do my best to ensure all my customers get the maximum value and impact and I also really enjoy doing this.

Lots of fun with this one. Dark forests are always a challenge. Once again the inspiration of Frank Frazetta and Todd Lockwood, as well as Alan Lee, Brian Froud, Rodney Mathews, and Peter A. Jones, play a big part, but hopefully I’m mostly channeling me!
