This isn't the Beginning by arvalis This isn't the Beginning by arvalis
This is a book cover illustration I did for a friend of mine. I don't really know much about the character, other than he is mysterious and somewhat magical.

Is the tea not spilling because he is magically controlling it? Because at that angle any liquid would pour out

Has your friend bothered to publish his/her book yet? If so whats the name of it? I would love to read the story as this cover got me hooked.

This picture rocks so hard. I think people are going to pick the book off the shelves and buy it for the cover. Later, they will read what I wrote and go, "what?"

Amazing work!
