"Woven" book cover
|"Woven" by Michael R. Jensen & David R. King|
I wanted to create that classic YA fantasy feel- somewhat like traditional animation... "Disneyesque" in it's appearance. I liked the way it turned out.
I had severely limited time- so I had to turn to some quick techniques to deliver. I used a forest texture brush for the background, I drew the figures separately, scanned, and colorized in Photoshop.
There's quite a bit of head space- that's for the title.
As it were, the cover was offered to the publisher as an alternative to what their art department had conceived. While it was turned down- events with Michael's bio and the whirlwind of media coverage over the controversy ended the project. I fully support Michael Jensen and his decision to be true to himself and I fully agree that a work should be judged on it's own merits and content and not anything beyond that.
