Xanth: Luck of the Draw by juliedillon Xanth: Luck of the Draw by juliedillon
This my first official cover art, for the next book in Piers Anthony's Xanth series, Luck of the Draw, which will be released December 2012.

Iíve been a little anxious about this, since I am stepping in for the wonderful Darrell Sweet, who unfortunately died last December. He was an amazing artist with a long career of fantastic and iconic covers, and I hope I can do him and fans of the Xanth series justice.

I just saw this book in the store today, and all I could think was "This looks like the style that Julie Dillon on dA does" and lo and behold a quick search of the book finds it to be so. Great job!

Xanth books were the first fantasy novel I ever read.

Wow, did not know about Darrell Sweet. How sad. I honest found a difference in the cover art, however, it looked damn close enough to be considered a new style of Mr. Sweet's. I find your first effort fantastic!
