Winter's Heart by Robert Jordan (eBook)

Hmm. I’m not sure I love this one as much as I have some of the past covers. I like the style of Scott Fischer‘s art, and the balance between red and blue, but the image itself sits poorly with me. Is it a small guy looking up at a giant? Or a normal-sized guy sitting in front of a statue? Knowing the context of the scene, I can answer this question, but it’s still a little jarring.

I think this is more an issue with the final crop, rather than the art itself. The pulled back perspective of the full piece of painting works much, much better than the clipped image used on the cover.
