This is far from finished but I am excited to show the initial draft of The Besieged Unicorn Army of Ryk's cover. I am working with Kerstina from 99Designs https://99designs.ca/profiles/kerstina She created the original Dragonsown cover and I couldn't wait to reach out and continue this design journey.
