The Living Labyrinth
« on: July 08, 2015, 09:31:17 PM »
Here's a start using Terragen as my main comp background and other tools for the effects, for an ebook cover, a client wanted some specifics so I try to oblige them. When this is all composited together with the text and all that jazz I'll post it up.

Ok, so here's an update as the cover is progressing. The story behind this book is that a ship crashes on an earthlike planet, and there are wormholes everywhere on the planet, very interesting story if you like to read LOL! The black border around the image is there for reference, its the boundary for tablets and mobile phones etc that way we don't get elements cut off the screen when you load the ebook etc.

Very nice man. A well constructed image and nice idea using transparency on the type and not lose the clouds. I didn't think about the black bleed area...well thought out. The client should be well pleased.

Nice image.
 The lower edge of the ship is a little hard to pick out against the terrain colors. It might have more impact (no pun intended) with some slight adjustments to the  lighting or shades of terrain or ship.

I hope so, I don't dabble to much in creating figures but I decided to break open the ole Daz Studio, when I do figures I get way to picky on myself then get frustrated LOL!
