This is soooo cool…

Back when the great Richard Anderson was submitting ideas to Orbit for the cover of SEVEN PRINCES, he did an illustration inspired by a specific scene from the book. It’s from Chapter 23: On the Cryptic Sea, wherein Prince Vireon battles a colossal Sea Serpent, a deed that earns him the title “Vireon the Slayer.”

Until now I had only seen the rough “thumbnail” of this piece, but Rich recently posted the finished version on his flaptraps art blog. I couldn’t resist posting it here as well. Rich’s covers have received universal praise, and his SEVEN PRINCES cover even made the most recent edition of SPECTRUM.
