“The Dragon With the Chocolate Heart” - unused cover illustration by Emma Lazauski, commissioned for Bloomsbury Publishing
This version of the scan is cropped to 6.25x9″, but the actual file was properly sized for British publishing. The painting was commissioned as a (paid) sample, and while a very different style was opted for the book I had a great time working on it with them!
Lovely and in a symbolic way wise
I find this to be so adorable! From the facial expressions (which perhaps convey the most cuteness!) to the pose and anatomy of the dragon to the background, it all looks wonderful. Were I browsing a bookstore and saw that cover, I'd certainly stop and check out the book. Nicely done!
This is really cool!
Very beautiful illustration. The sweeping lines away from the fire looks fantastic. Very nice dragon and cute girl too. I'd horde chocolate any-day.
I really like the translucency of the wings! it took me a moment to realize what the colors in the wings meant.
Woah so beautiful ♡♡
