Here are 2 book covers I did for Coniglio Editore.
One is for Solomon Kane, a novel by Conan the barbarian's author, the other is for Sinister Barrier, a classic scifi weird story.
Never did a cover for a book.
So I started with two :)
Both covers were done in the same VERY quick technique (2hours each).
It's basically a quick draft photoshop sketch, layered with true paint spatters, and then rendered with a quick, standard photoshop white brush.
The original files are very big, while the final output will be rather small so I didn't care to hide all the photoshop artifacts as they will blend during the downscaling process generating interesting subpixel details.
Below the covers and the process!
