this time I propose you an image that is the back-cover of a book.
I have created it in a very short time (a couple of days) so it is not a complex image… it is just a simple portrait.
The author asked me an image that remind a classic renaissance painting, the subject had to be a girl with red hair and gold ribbons.
She is a kind of witch. Author wanted to have a strong contrast between the front cover (that is very bright) and the back-cover (that is very dark).
The book name is Alchemia and you can see the front cover in my portfolio (http://narcius.cgsociety.org/gallery/1004361).
Sorry but this image (Alchemia Front cover) was not accepted in the Showcase Gallery so you can not give me a your feedback about it.
No matter, let me know your impressions for this back-cover of the book… if CGTalk guys will accept it ;)
I was inspired by a photo of Nadezda Koldysheva.
This time I have conserved some intermediate steps of my work, so if you want you can find them here:
As usually it is totally made in Painter (with my Wacom tablet).
Well, I hope you like it.
Let me know your impressions!
