Faux Comic Book Cover

Journal Category



It's not really directly game related but I thought I'd post it anyway (Let's pretend it's a character study). This is where my recent illustration energies had been going rather than into concept art related topics. Created for a charity Auction and my own pleasure, no brief apart from the comic book cover format. Painted in Photoshop with a few details (background an typography) created in Illustrator.

On a technical/hardware note, this was the first painting I have undertaken largely on my laptop LCD monitor. At the end of the project I discovered the tone got progressively, and unintentionally, darker toward the bottom of the painting! This was due to the viewing angle on the LCD. = Very frustrating. Cross checking on my old CRT didn't help much either as I suspect it is warn out and not displaying a full tonal range any more.

Might be time to buy a new monitor.

Looks good. Though, the chick doesn't seem totally in proportion -- head and breasts -- or have the right perspective -- right had needs to be larger due to being closer to the camera.

Still, really like it. The kind of cover that would make me pick it up and have a closer look to find out what it's all about :).
