While most of my work focuses on the figure, the client really wanted an abstract shape for the cover and I took on the challenge as an opportunity to experiment with various media and Photoshop techniques. These are some of the test designs:
Below is the final cover that the client selected.
The gig went so well that the client asked me to streamline his current logo as well. Below is the original logo that he had been using, my goal was to simplify this logo while keeping similar themes and the essence of what he wanted the logo to say about his company.
Below is the final logo, that we settled on.
Aaand because I can't do a post without showing off some form of distorted human figure, I have included the last two sketch covers I created for the Alpha Comics Artist Challenge. Alpha Comics is a great local comic store, Chris H. is the owner and is a super nice dude, and the contest itself always has talented, cool contributors.
This Walking Dead cover won me some markers!
