After reading the synopsis to the book, Starphoenix, I needed to create two pieces of concept art with an option to include them in a book cover or movie poster. I decided to incorporate my concept in a book cover.
I enjoyed this challenge. It gave me a purpose to use my newly acquired skills with my old ones in a real life situation.
I created the mushroom shape buildings, the landscape and the space ship in Lightwave as well as the sword. I then brought them all into Photoshop. I manipulated the sword then added the fire. The finishing touch was adding the copy information.
