Cover illustration for the second book of Irene´s series, written by Jesús B. Vilches
For this cover we wanted to show Tristán and Irene, in a kind of broken encounter, so close but so far. I started from a rough grayscale sketch and later I add colours. I had some doubts about the final colours. During most of the process I was thinking in an orange sunset background but finally we decided that a blue background will emphasize Irene and makes the book cover more recognizable. In the same way to let Irene some leading role although she is behind him, I enlightened Irene in contrast with an overshadowed Tristán.
