Project JKF-1: The View From The Window Cover

December 4, 2017

Digital Art

This is another book cover for my project with John Fulton.  John’s short story is called “The View From The Window”.

This time I wanted to tweak my process a bit by taking more time with the construction early on.  It also gave me a chance to get to grips with the perspective ruler feature in Clip Studio Paint (which I really liked as it turns out).

Here’s the initial construction from basic forms:

Here’s the full line drawing:

 

The colour block-in phase:

 

And the low res final version:

I think for the next piece I will push for a bigger contrast in brightness values right from the paint block-in phase.  Maybe something like 20% to 80% right from the beginning.  Then I can push to 5% and 95% for the final bells and whistles.

I am pleased with the tighter construction approach, as it gave this piece a solid foundation.  I will be keeping this tweak to my process.

I did this digital portrait drawing in Gimp 2.10 and then added to a pocket sketchbook cover design.
