Amora managed to represent HB lore in a single image, the image fortells a symbol for the creation of this world.
With only a month away from releasing Heavenly Bodies, my debut novel. I’ve decided to start releasing the illustration’s that go inside the book. You can check out the cover now!
These are meant to expand the world, and through the journey of writing this novel became a way for me to see my writing through other artist’s eyes.
The Astral Chart is the symbol of the old ones, a reminder of how their world came to be, a truth in a single image, “gazing upon it, eyes become unclouded and the mind perceives the truth,” or so, that’s what they thought.
But in reality the Astral Chart is nothing but an old tale, told from within.
The Astral Chart is the flag I wave for Heavenly Bodies.
Maes did such an amazing job with the cover, but it’s no wonder since he worked for other licenses such as WoTc, D&D and even Star Wars. I felt Heavenly Bodies to be up there with them, what I mean is Heavenly Bodies, in my mind, deserves the full product features. Movies, merchandise, the lot. Even if that never happens, I know at least that’s what this cover say’s about the series, about those who worked on it, and most importantly about me. I die with no regret’s. So, because of that, the first novel needs a cover that screams. EPIC, FANTASY + 4 ELEMENTS. (because of the story’s nature). Heavenly Bodies is who I am, it’s me as an author putting my heart and soul into words. Heavenly Bodies releases 06.12.20. (I am lucky enough to know Maes personally, if I didn’t I don’t think this cover would ever had happened.)
You can find Maes on facebook, where he post’s art and processes.
