Book Cover


This is what I'm calling the finished painting for the book cover, I had posted the rough HERE back in July. Now it's up to the art director's approval.

Dude! It would take me a month of Sundays to do this. I don't know how you churn these out so quickly.

Talk about detail, I zoomed in on the paper clips, they're almost a finished illustration in and of themselves!

Nice Job, Steve.

Another lesson for us all in textures and perspectives-
I hope that in true AD form, they don not obliterate your painting with typography...

but where's the dead body?

Wowza! Nice work there!

This job was fun to do, I set up the scene in our vacation house (rental) so I got all the reference I needed from every angle. i did the sketches from the live set up which made it all the more enjoyable. They didn't want a dead body in this one, oddly enough.

And for a split second, i thought it was a photograph. Brilliant work.

Wow....fabulous! I almost thought you were photographing your own desk.....but the color of paint shines through. Great work S!

This went out to the AD on Tuesday and I haven't heard a peep. No news is good news, since you never get a call to tell you they liked it, you only hear if they are unhappy and want a change. And so it goes.
