Hello few people who follow me,
I decided to write a kind of step by step journal of the work I did for this cover. No one asked me to, but what the hell, here it is!
First, I made a bunch of quick drawings and sent them to Venavis
who comissioned it, to get his opinion:
After he had selected his prefered cover, I started working on it with better drawings:
I scanned them and put them together with Photoshop.
Then started working on the colors while making and adding new drawings when necessary (more monsters and such):
One of the steps that wasn't showcased here was the title font selection;
I made a few tries on Illustrator and decided to make a small modification of the well known Trajan Pro font.
And finally the finished kindle version :
These dimensions are horrible, I really hate that format, but Amazon have weird rules for their covers and I simply followed them.
