This is my latest painting finished for SAS. The assignment was to create a new book cover for Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
I decided to include some of the process for this as well.
Thumbnails: I started with a whole bunch of thumbnails. I was working on them while listening to the audio book, so the subject matter changed a bit as the story progressed.
Rough Sketches: I picked 3 thumbs and developed them further
Trying out some colours: I managed to narrow it down to two.
In the end I decided to go with the more iconic close-up.
