Freakangels Cover Illustration by spoonbard Freakangels Cover Illustration by spoonbard
Here's an illustration I can post because it's been previewed on Freakangels.com itself :)
It's the full-crop of the softback cover. Personally I'm not too keen on the crop they've used... it makes the fish-eye effect confusing, and removes some of the atmospheric interest in the lighting. I'm hoping I can persuade them to change it.

Love the colours here. The green, yellow and violet go so well together and the off-set black gives a great frame and nice contrast. :)

Thanks so much! The original is just the linework, since the colours were done on photoshop.

Excellent! Love the tone of this image. Impressive geometry. Did you ref a wide-angle photo for that perspective? Elegant lines. Very nice.

spoonbard Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010  Professional General Artist
No, but I didn't feel confident getting it right un-referenced, so I built a simple 3D model and rendered it using a virtual fish-eye lens and used that like I would a reference photo :)

Great cover. I totally buy the tech yet it isn't over rendered, that's is such a hard balance to pull off.

The fisheye effect is really convincing, so hard to pull off well but you succeeded with style!

spoonbard Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2008  Professional General Artist

I have to admit I cheated a bit on the fisheye, since I built a 3D model of the heli which I rendered in 3D with a fisheye lens and drew the scene around and over ^^;

Saw this over at the Freak Angels page but it really takes on a life of its own without the graphic and text overlay. The notion that the reader is peeking into the freakangels world is fantastic.
