Dan Dos Santos and the Wheel of Time ebook cover: The Fires of Heaven

Presenting!...The next of our Wheel of Time ebook covers: The Fires of Heaven with art by Dan Dos Santos.

Dan had the unenviable task of having to paint a preternaturally beautiful and ageless woman. He did a wonderful job of it, I’d say.

Head over to the Tor.com post to see his sketches, progress shots of the painting, and our initial thought process.

WOW - stunning result! Great to see the working process too. One person's sketch is another person's masterpiece...

Sam Weber said...

Gah. This is so effing good. Dan really out did himself on this one.

Tor really should consider releasing these covers as lithographs or a limited edition portfolio. The time and effort by both the artist and the editorial staff deserves no less! As someone mentioned on the Dragonmount site, the proceeds could be used to benefit amyloidosis or even develop into a new market for Tor and other publishers.

The Cover turned out great. the color scheme alone has made me a fan. And I have gotta say, Dan Dos Santos always knocks it out of the park.
