Nope, not to the upcoming big illustrated novel of it, but a little foretaste of it. One of those "do your own covers" which I really get a kick out of. Just so nice to do a random illo on an actual book sometimes. Great to take a break on from the pressures of the regular work.
Here's basically how it went, from start to finish. If you like the end result, I put the final book up on ebay. I dig doing these book things but have no desire to just keep it to myself. Figure there's someone out there who'd probably like a Drac cover by me so... see the listing here.
Inking with a fine artline pen. A 0.1 basically.
Filling in the blacks. When in doubt, black it out.
a bit of black watercolour. Some drips for the background. General washy-ness.
White pen time. Just a little.
Finally a dash of red for the eyes and title.
And another little doodle in the front of the book just because.
