  • Fahrenheit 451 Cover

    Done for a Pummel Street Fight. Really wanted to give it a book cover feel.

    I would suggest either losing the text or not making it stand out as much; defining the flames better. Other than that, looks really good.
    Money can't buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search.

      chk out some custom brushes for flame effects dude, those could be better.

      also, consider the shadow cast from the fire would project shadows upwards, the coloring on the body in particular.

        I like the pulpy feel of the cover, and especially the fact that you manage to convey the essence of what the book is about -- important in a book cover, but somehow rarely achieved by illustrators. I agree on the text -- it's clumsy the way it is. I like the flames being strange and stylized, but i would watch the direction of the shadows they cast, and make them two colors.

        Good work! You make me want to read that book again.

          Popninja - Thanks brother! Really glad you like it. Do you think the text looks bad/ Or just pulls attention away from the image? My intention was for it to attract just as much attention as the image like a real book cover.

          Kae-ae - I agree the flames could be better, but the ones I got accomplished what I was going for; something abstract and graphic at the same time.

          lance_bailey - Thanks man! Glad you dig it. Good point on the shadows (a really good point you and Kae-ae bring up.) I wasn't initially going to have the pile of books on fire, so all my lighting, even the colours, were done with the torch flame in mind.

          Thanks guys.
