FABLE cover art FINAL

Here's the final cover painting.
I apologize for taking so long to post this...
The front cover for Fable, the fantasy novel by Lisa Fender is finished!
This has been a labor of love for me. :) 
While working on the cover, I have had appropriate movies/shows playing in the background to set the mood. 
In the course of finishing this painting, I have been through Game Of Thrones Season 1 - no less than seven times! along with LOTR - all three movies - twice! and Star Wars III - Revenge of the Sixth - twice...
(I'm really in my element here!)
Now I'm getting the print ready to submit to the Spectrum 20 (annual competition of Fantastic Art.) :D
