The Nightmare Card by spoonbard The Nightmare Card by spoonbard
For the cover of a book called "The Nightmare Card", written by Catherine Johnson and published by Barrington Stoke. This one was a fun challenge. The brief was to take the tarot card, the Nine of Swords, and adapt the imagery to the cover of a horror novel for teens. It was a great design exercise, and I especially enjoyed referencing all the swords, and looking up info on the tarot card (I have an Aquarian pack that I bought because of a script that involved Tarot, beautiful illustrations!)

may I ask what you use on the computer to create these works of art? I know you probably use a tablet.

I used pencil and paper for the lines, but computer and tablet for the colouring. That's my usual method :)
