Heroes of Atlantis & Lemuria

Cover artwork for a collection of Golden Age pulp stories centered around the sunken continents of Atlantis and Lemuria, published by DMR Books. We see the warrior-bard Kardios attempting to rescue Queen Theona of Atlantis before the city is completely engulfed by water.

Ideas were worked out in pencil, final drawing done digitally and transferred to the board for rendering in Acryla-Gouache. Finally, it was touched up digitally and had a 2" extension at the top to allow potential repositioning of the artwork on the book's cover.
