Back Cover, Finished Illustration

I finished painting the back cover today.  It was originally intended to be the front cover but after a critique, it was suggested that I make a new front cover where the hero is standing instead of sliding on his back.  Painting this illustration went fairly smoothly, there are a lot of opaques in this one - the fire and dust are almost completely opaque.  It is much harder to paint smooth flames using transparent paint.  With opaque paint I can get much smoother and softer blends with the flames.  Quite a bit of adjustment layers in the scan since yellow-oranges always create an issue.  The scan matches the original fairly well.  Only two more illustrations to go!!
