Corax book cover

Not a monster for a change! My second project in my Projects in Illustration class. This one was to redesign a book cover. I decided to redesign the book cover for the now out of print Corax Breed Book by White Wolf Publishing. I've been playing their RPGs for ages now, and the Corax are the werecritters I've always been most fond of. 

The thinking behind this was to show the two most essential components of the Corax. They're ravens, and they spread information. I ended up taking a Russian constructivist motif for the image, and using a similar color pallet.

All done in Ps CS3.

Three monsters this time

Bit of a monster backlog here.

 Abstract art monster. Loads of fun to do. Nice change of pace from doing representational work.

 Greek pottery monster. Tentacles are always fun to draw. :P

Japanese woodblock print monster. First monster in full color!

Woodcut but not really

 Monster number two. A medieval European monster in the style of a woodcut. Done with a crowquill ink pen on watercolor paper. Below is the brain storming process to get to this point, including a rather derp first idea monster. :P
