Before I show off the final piece and mock up of the adventure cover I thought I'd show off some progression pictures!
Here was my idea for the cover art. Low angle, towering keep, scary stuff, and hapless villagers. Now I know what you're thinking; why would I even have anyone else draw up a piece when I have this masterwork of art...
Stefan sent me back not one but two sketches. This first which is similar to my orginal design, abid, slightly better... :-p
The second was another angle, an over-the-shoulder of the witch! This is just one of my reasons to work with Stefan or any qualified artist is they will hopefully, and I fully encourage it, provide their own suggestions on what the perfect piece will look like.
Well I fell in love with this piece and gave him the go ahead to work his magic!
A week or so later I get this glorious piece!
And here is the mockup of what the cover may look like.
In celebration of this I have started a Google+ Community page for Owl Knight Publishing. I'm hoping in a short time many discussions can be had there concerning this and future adventures. Sky of Crimson Flame will hopefully be out by Spring 2016 if not before. I am currently working on the layout and getting more artwork finished.
HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
