Book cover trilogy 1 by JohnSilva Book cover trilogy 1 by JohnSilva
It's been a while since I did a book cover for a client (can't say for who yet) so it's been really fun where I actually get to portrait a strong female character without having intimate body parts showing off.
I experimented a lot on this one, trying to make illustrations more organic but still tightly rendered if that makes any sense?
Oh and yea color exists, gotta bite the bullet and start experimenting more on that too.

Thanks for looking!

I love the perspective of this! The diagonal shape flow makes the piece almost look like a moving image when I stare at it long enough. Excellent work ^_^ :clap:

You're like... an artist I've been looking for my own books. @_@ This is a very great piece of work!

Wicked as always John. I love the looseness toward the bottom, but the folds in the undershirt are freaking exquisite. Really helps sell the fantastical armor.
