The painting is fantastic. I really like the way the light was made and the realism and detail is great.

...and then the publisher goes like "hey guys we got to do something about this wonderful cover illustration! I know! Lets put the author's name in PINK letters, and make the title GREEN, because they're the only colours that don't go well with the picture's ones. And make it 3/4 of the cover, so nobody will be able to appreciate the illustration no matter how good it is."

Awesome job man!
You have really nice knownledge of lights, shadows and 3-dimensional space, those mountains - and whole piece - looks just like a 3d render. Great job! =)

Oh! Wow! I love this piece and i love Terry Goodkins SOT series.
This is very touching. I especially like the sunlight reflecting off the fog/mist.
