So, still feeling super ill today. But I just curled myself around my laptop and sketch books and made myself do work.
I actually got a lot done today! So I have two new book covers that I started working on today. I am still not too sure on either, but I have now realized with the deadline looming. It is perhaps time to look at the ones I already have a choose one or two and develop it further. So here are the two newest editions of my book covers:
So as I had discussed yesterday, I had tried to recreate the same style of image as the Star Wars posters. I did this to the image on the left, I don't really feel that this worked. I even added textures to make it look more like rocks and wilderness. The book is based on the Isle Of Skye, Scotland. So I looked up lots of photos in hope of seeing lots of forests and things to create a similar branch effect to create a type of inception image. But no, just lots of mountains and wild flowers :

So, as you can see just a lot of rough rocks and cliffs. Although I tried to recreate this landscape within my book cover I really don't think it worked. So I looked at all my previous book covers and thought, well what do I like about these? I then went back and created the image on the right. Of just a spy, It is definitely a lot simpler. than the image on the left.
I also started doing a little more of my designing of a deck of cards. I looked up royal families from around the globe. Looking at the costumes, uniforms, jewelry and of course crowns and tiara's. I came across this photos. The only thing that was said about them was these are photos from a party. I don't know what year, or place. but the costumes and amazing looking.
