I created this illustration for issue #21 of S!CK Magazine, a super-cool pop-culture news magazine based out of France. This time, the S!CK team asked me to create a wrap-around cover based on a Fluted Knight from the Dark Souls video game franchise. 
The gang over at S!CK Magazine were really excited about this cover, because they are huge fans of the game and all it's sequels, especially Dark Souls 3. This one was also a lot of fun to illustrate because I got to design the look of the haunted knight as well! 
The cover idea was originally conceived by the team at S!CK Magazine, and once again they provided me with a rough layout idea, color palette, and reference pages already keyed out for the issue. They wanted the cover illustration to really tie into the design and layout of the corresponding article within the magazine, and everything looked amazing in this issue because of their planning ahead!

Below is a 15-minute time-lapse video that shows me creating the art for the cover.
Below is the full art created for the wrap-around cover, along with several cover sketch roughs and the black and white line work that were generated.
