Previously, on the Saga of the Cover Art:
This is actually the character’s natural skin tone. However, we can’t have that! He’s a necromancer wearing a corpse-body, after all, so he needs to look a bit less lively.
Except without looking dead, since he’s good at faking life. Which means us flailing at colors to try to make him look pallid or stark.
And then the tinkering began.
TOO MUCH HONEYCOMB.
All right, well….stucco!
THAT IS NOT THE RIGHT HAND COLOR.
All right, have this. And your beads.
Hair and clothes!
….how is it wrong?
ALSO WHY IS HIS EAR A PLAIN FLESHY TAB?
…because…I’m not there yet…
I WILL EDIT IT!
IT MAKES HIS JAW LOOK BIGGER.
I ACCEPT THIS. DON’T KILL ME.
‘Kay. On to the throne and stuff.
Here, have this.
HOW ABOUT WE FORGET THE SUN THING I JUST DREW AND USE THE WINGY THING FROM THE SPINE OF THE FIRST BOOK?
ALREADY EDITING IT!
WHILE YOU DO THAT, IMA FIND US A BACKGROUND! HERE, THIS IS VAGUELY WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE!
This looks right.
Can we go back to the clothing now? The throne hurts my head.
No, no, I’ve got it.
I know, but it’s past midnight. Howwww aboooout….you go and find some reference pictures and figure out something you would like, and we can start again in the morning?
To be concluded…
