I have also produced this image ahead of the release of the second book in the trilogy, Breaking Storm. The picture depicts Athena flying over the ice sculpted landscape of Hells Cauldron, a parallel world version of our Iceland.
As an artistic project, an indulgence, this image has been an utter joy to work on and left me hungry to produce more work. I'd forgotten just how important visual expression has always been to me.
I'm planning to release this as the first of a limited addition set of images themed around Cloud Riders.
I hope you like this first glimpse of Athena as much I enjoyed making it.
