Odyssey of a God – Making of "Der Gottbettler"

When I got the job to paint this begging Person, I thought wow cool thing!
But it was going to be the biggest challenge in the last months. 

Final illustration for "Der Gottbettler" by Michael M. Thurner
Below you can see some steps of creating this illustration.
And this is one of the few cover I completely created. :)

This was the second try of the cover... the type only made it ;)
So we went to the third round and startet from sketch again. But it was worth it!
