So I thought I'd share with ya a little bit of the art/OCD process that goes into some of the opening pages of this fun little "Monsters, Maidens & Mayhem" book.
I had just finished with the interiors, covers (front and back), etc., when I realized the book didn't have a title page. So I thought alright I'll do something with a cool looking machine with Tesla coils and a dark backdrop with the titles and credits over it. And Badaboom Badabing, a Mad Scientist Machine.
Then the artist/OCD kicks in and I decided to add a fun looking castle interior backdrop out of a Frankenstein movie.
Which was cool, but looked like it was missing something...
Some Classic Horror-Movie ambassadors for the book. And who better than Vincent Price, and the Bride of Frankenstein to welcome everyone in.
Here's the final composite image.
Can't wait to show you all what it looks like after it's been Digitally Painted.Enjoy!
