Roscoe Wizzle

Here’s the cover I recently did for David Elliott’s hilarious book The Transmogrification of Roscoe Wizzle. Click here to see how the whole cover creation process happened.

First I started off with a whole bunch of character sketches.

Then I started putting the characters into a setting from the book and trying some different title treatments.

Next we narrowed it down to the following two cover ideas.

We picked this one to move forward with, so I started by just filling in some flat colors.

Then I actually painted it two different ways. First I painted it in Corel Painter using the sponge brushes. Click it to get a closer look.

Then I did a more stylized/flat/textured version, which is what we ended up going with.

You can buy the ibooks version here!
