The Tale of Mally Biddle by IleanaHunter The Tale of Mally Biddle by IleanaHunter
This is the second book cover I've drawn for wonderful author M. L. LeGette :heart: Based on a photograph by :iconsssssergiu:

'When Mally Biddle agreed to spy upon the King of Lenzar and his overbearing knights she knew she was heading into danger. She didn’t know she’d find a family unlike any other. Posing as a servant in Bosc Castle, Mally serves tea and restocks the fires for the most dangerous men in the kingdom. Her goal is to learn the truth of what happened sixteen years ago, when the infant princess met her death … a death that has more questions than answers. Along her search for the truth, Mally meets the energized Lita Stump, the strict and matriarchal Meriyal Boyd, and the opinionated Archibald Diggleby. Then of course there are the knights: Sir Leon Gibbs who is slicker than a greased hog, Adrian Bayard, hot tempered and violent, and the worst of the lot: Sir Illius Molick, Captain of the Knights. And then there is Maud, a mysterious woman who just might know everything…'

I knew you would get scoped up from someone for book covers. You're just too darn good.

This looks absolutely wonderful. The way you do hair and eyes always strikes me, and the slight minimalism brings both out from the contrast. In addition this sounds like a must read!

Again, wonderfully done piece :)
