Spent the last two days working on cover concept art for E’steem Goddess of? And I finally got some of the images out of my imagination down on paper.
E’steem Goddess of? takes place after E’steem: Ascension and is what E’steem is doing while Isis and John are trying to Escape from Transylvania in Isis: Escape From Transylvania. In this story, Hell’s aspiring angel takes on Avarisk, The Tormentor, a demonic Dominatrix out to make E’steem submit to Lucifer and return to the Legion. And as she takes on that Demonic Dominatrix we get a showcase of E’steem’s new powers and her stronger resolve.
The scene for this cover is fairly simple. E’steem is on the beach of the Island of Solitude hovering above the sand with an intense look on her face and her hands glowing with her new light powers. Avarisk is rearing her whip back ready to strike to take her down.
E’steem’s look for this one is simple, just her powered up in a red bikini. The reason why I haven’t drawn a bikini top is I’m on the fence about having her topless. In Goddess of?, E’steem loses her Chanel bikini top in the fight with Avarisk, The Tormentor, and she’s topless in this fight sequence. While wardrobe malfunctions are par for the course with E’steem in her battles, but I don’t know how readers would feel about seeing a topless woman on the cover. I might draw her hair over her breasts as a compromise .
Avarisk, The Tormentor’s look in contrast to E’steem’s is intricate. Her outfit is black leather dominatrix gear with lots of laces. I was gonna keep it simple, but I felt the laces added texture to her outfit and drew our eyes to her face where we’d see the plume of blonde hair, blue eyes and red lips along with that badass spiked collar. Avarisk is a demoness you don’t want to mess with she can kill a gnat with a crack of her whip!
I’m hoping to have E’steem: Goddess of? Available in Spring of 2019. The book is edited and uploaded to Amazon and ready for sale. All I’m doing right now is just trying to get the cover concept art ready for the artist.
