this is my first post after long long time… I was very busy in the last months but now I hope to have more time to work at new pieces.
For sure no one has notice my missing… I mean my pieces are not so impressive and here in CGSociety there is a huge number of amazing artists!
In any case this is the cover of a new Italian book (title: The parallel clock) that is the collector of three stories: the sad life of an old man with his secrets, a modern love story connected to second war events and the strange story of a pianist that plays with death. All stories seem to be different but if you analyse better their essence you can find a common factor: time is the real protagonist of the life and we are only actors on its theatre stage.
On the background there is a clock tower and two roads that connect everything to it.
The original author of the three stories is a great lover of cartoons (it’s a journalist). For this reason I tryed to avoid a realistic style and I have decided to use a strange melting between stylized shapes and photorealism.
For publishing reason I had a very short time to create the cover and I could not take care the various details… I hope you like it anyway ;)
As usual I create it with Painter and my Wacom.
Let me know your impressions!
