Dimensional type design can be a great look for book covers as well as logos. Each of these illustrations was done in one day, with the type taking around 4-8 hours total.
Dimensional Type Designs
I have a few different styles for book covers- one is line with wash, the second is more realistic and digitally created, the third is oil. I often combine more than one medium to get interesting results, or the client chooses the look they want. I can do interior black and white drawings either in pencil or ink, and combine this with wash or subtle grays. The images at the top of this page are more recent examples, the drawings are on the left, the final color is on the right. These take between 1-2 days from start to finish.
