CABLE MAKES ME DO ODD THINGS
This was interesting. I've been wanting to play around with different techniques for covers, so I did this quick 2 mintue sketch of cable with the intention of trying to do some kind of digital painting on it. Once I scanned it and started playing around if photoshop, things starting happening outside of the original plan and I just went with it. Now, this was just a little sketch, smaller than 8.5x11, and the digital image was really just photoshop sketching. I didn't think something usable would come out in the end. But I ended up being pleased with the outcome. So, I sent the small file in and it got approved for a cover. So, I'm going to redo this, using the same methods, but with a little more plan this time around. But it was a great experiment, and I look forward to doing the final.
