Painting a Book Cover

Leave a comment

Premade Exclusive Unique Cover 1

For my book cover design job, I do a lot of photo-manipulation (combining images and using that as the base, and adding effects on top of that), but I decided to also start painting some covers from scratch. (That’s ‘digital’ painting, mind you, done in photoshop with a tablet). I thought it would be neat to share some step-by-step progress images, for anyone interested in seeing what goes into painting a piece. Enjoy!
