Opera Soft had some cool illustrators on board. I can’t say for certain, but this looks like it might be Juan Giménez. They did have him do other covers.

I dig these drawings by Juan Giménez.  Sometimes it feels like when we got past the Atari age, the US marketing teams felt that we didn’t like nice illustrations.  The European computer game market, and the Japanese console game market kept getting them.
