I recently illustrated the cover for Jon Pogioli's book 'The Light Bringer'. It's set inside a human body and the story revolves around immune cells and viruses. The book is available on Amazon and 20% of all book profits go to The British Heart Foundation.
Jon sent me a sketch for how he imagined the cover. Then I designed some character concepts and a thumbnail sketch for the cover. I then rendered a black and white value study for lighting. Afterwards, I painted in colour and detail.
The concepts were sketched on paper and on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil. The finished the artwork was created in Photoshop CC with a Wacom Cintiq.
