Astrofunk 2 Cover Concepts
Back with some Astrofunk issue 2 action this week - I'm almost finished the final version of the cover, but thought I'd stick up some of the work involved in getting there. As you can see, it's changed along the way, the only constant being that right from the initial sketches i knew that i wanted the cover to use the 8bitChick, and preferably show off the 8bit guns themselves, so went doodling crazy. The first page shows where i got to with my first pass, i liked the fact that u saw the scared rabbit and the stickers of the chompatrons, but upon reflection the post just wasn't exciting enough....soooo, i went back to the sketchbook, and came up with the idea of her running towards us with chompatrons by her side, and i think it works much better - there's more energy in the pose, and i think it just reaches out and grabs u more. Or here's hoping anyways - sure you'll let me know if i'm way off the mark :)
Back next week with....something else!
