Project 2 - Book Cover

For this project we needed to create a book cover hence the title of this blog....

Step One:
At the beginning of this process I chose two books that sounded fun to do, one was a children's book called  Porcupining: A Prickly Love Story. It was really cute but I would have had draw a lot and honestly I don't think I could have drawn a porcupine, so the second one I choose was a novel called The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This one is a murder mystery. I never read it before but the cover sounded interesting so in the end that is the one I chose to do.

Step Two: Ideas/Thumb nails

Step Three: Picture Ideas


Step Four: Rough Draft

Step Five: Final
