Goni Montes - Mother, Crone, Maiden and Process

Tor books used the skills of Goni Montes once again for the cover of an upcoming book by Author Cat Hellisen. He always adds a great dynamic element to anything he does.

And as always, Goni has shared his interesting Process:

"Cat Hellisen‘s Mother, Crone, Maiden was a bit of a challenge. Full of intense, risky visuals, it proved rather difficult to choose some over others. It took one or two days just to come up with thumbnails, a process that normally takes a few hours.

Irene and I decided to take the trippy route with this one

And then I went seriously overboard with the inks. Painting this was more of an excavation process than anything else.

After hours of lasso tooling this into shape, this is what emerged."
