My latest commissioned illustration. This will be the cover of a nationally circulated science fiction novel. My third to date, with at least three more on the way. "Irony of Survival" Published by Zharmae Press, ([link]
) will be available on Amazon and other major book retailers later this year.
So happy to finally have this done after over a month of working on it! The book is an anthology of many different short stories from some very talented sci-fi authors all relating to the theme of survival. This was painted from scratch using a wacom intuos graphics tablet and adobe photoshop CS6 using mostly the hard round brush, the soft airbrush, and a few custom texture brushes. Some of the underlying themes are light vs darkness, and the juxtaposition of the mechanical and the biological. The premise here is this ginger crashes on an alien jungle world with only her wits, a floating robot friend, and an SMG to survive!
