The Dragons of Jupiter: Cover Art Complete!

dragons of jupiter cover-small

The worst enemy in war is family.

Brothers Kaneda and Ryu Kusanagi once fought side by side to defeat Caesar, a rogue machine intelligence that almost enslaved humanity. They succeeded, but Kaneda was forever changed and began to see all artificial life as dangerous.

Now Kaneda seeks to destroy Matriarch, his creator and the last true thinking machine. He and his Crusaders will stop at nothing to achieve her death even if it means destroying Europa, the moon of Jupiter he once called home.

However, Ryu and his fellow Dragons stand against Kaneda and will do whatever it takes to protect their way of life. The two brothers are set to collide in a battle that will shake the great powers of the solar system and force both men to question what they believe in.

Robert Chew, a.k.a. CrazyAsian1, has completed the cover art. What is there to say? It looks fantastic! The artwork will wrap around the book, providing a fully illustrated front and back.

The cover features a formation of Crusaders, elite heavy infantry that serve as the novel’s antagonists. Don’t they look absolutely badass? Their idea of “light” weaponry is a Gatling gun. 🙂 Robert’s armor and weapon designs are incredible.

A lone Dragon waits on the back cover, outnumbered and outgunned, but fighting to the bitter end. Robert Chew added a cloaking effect to the Dragon, illustrating their impressive stealth abilities.

It won’t be much longer now. The interior layout is proceeding smoothly, and the formatting of the cover text has already started. Once we know the spine’s thickness precisely, we can zero in the design for the cover.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present The Dragons of Jupiter!

Coming soon to Amazon.com in Print and E-Book!

Heck, yeah!

  2. Wow, that is fantastic!!

  3. An impressive cover, indeed. The cloaking is a good touch.

    • Thanks! The cloaking effect was Robert’s idea, based the design references I gave him for the dragons. He did a great job following my directions, but he also came up with a lot of cool touches that help give the final composition that extra bit of cool. 🙂
