Yay, thanks!

A little bit of back story on the piece: this image was not a scene in the book when it was painted, as is the case with most book covers.  Instead, the cover was painted first, then author wrote a a scene into the book to match the image.

cool. its great to see inspiration working in both directions, especially when you can fit so much story into a single image. illustration as concept work for writing sounds very natural to me.

Thank you!  I spent a lot of time figuring out the composition and lighting so I'm glad you like how it turned out.
