A friend of mine has a boyfriend who is a writer and needed a new book cover artist. This was for the short story smaller book focusing on two of his characters, a dark elf and a northern tribe man. So I sketched out a concept for this and recently finished the design.
It was a HUGE file. I had to split it into 5-6 psd files to be able to finish it. The leather book texturing, the paper layers, the leather tearing, the fur, the dagger, and even the titles were all their own psd files. The snow and blood got added after they had all their layers flattened and combiend into the first leather book texture file.
Safe to say my computer didn't enjoy this.
