Cover Design Part 2


This is the full front and back illustration for the cover (maybe XP). It need redoing partly because the original is A3 and I could use the A3 scanner and partly because I used pencil, not pen so the edges are very rough...if you click to make it big you'll see XP! But that's what I was thinking of when I drew the sketch last night!

oooh I really like this one!

Just a couple thoughts- if it's front and back as one image, you might want to scale up to A2, or else you're working 1:1 which will be horribly unforgiving.

I really like it though, you might want to push the detail in a few bits like the suckers and eyes...octopuses are so fantastically bizarre.

Yeh I might work on the details and redo it in pen, then I can fill it in in the workshop in the morning (which I think I need again since I have the memory of a retarded goldfish >.>)...Is the publication going to be A3? I know nothing apparently XP

the publication will be around A4 portrait closed - A3 horizontal as a double spread!

I think you need to take the whole composition, background in all into consideration - but on the up, each stage seems to get closer. I think katie's is beautifully drawn and composed - though not really as suitable as yours in concept or mood for the work that will be printed

I'm redoing it entirely now, hopefully to a more detailed and interesting appearance (though using the same sort of concept of octopus and the spread. I should be done in a few hours and I'll post the new one up.
