Writer Jay Swanson is publishing his fantasy trilogy soon. The cover is a scene of the book where a woman is floating in a capsule. Is it a really old woman mixed with a young woman, like she is preserved well. After the briefing I started with a thumbnail sketch and some keywords for the bookcover.
Clean sketch: Graphite and blue pencil on paper.
Because I didn't want to loose a lot of her face I made the mask half transparent, half metal. I wanted her eyes to be strong and beautiful.
Bookcover. Photoshop. (Needs to be approved. Not the final yet.)
