Book Cover Design (Entwurf)

Recommended Posts

The right side of the head looks a little strange, the hole in the head looks a little bigger than the head

Lovely work as usual. Creepy but very nicely done.

I agree with dutchshader, the hole does seem to extend further out than the curve of the head suggests. Maybe a crack, or two, on the cut of the skull could be a "quick" fix? (Never thought I'd be talking about putting cracks in a skull when I woke up today.)

@ Kasper-V,
thanks for your comment, very interesting. Quay Brothers are very well known (i like the style), but the cut off heads have a different source with me ;)

Not something I'd show my 8-year young daughter -- which is a compliment to you!

 

I like how you balanced the implied gruesomeness of the scene with the design's overall softness, sensing this makes the visual all the more confronting. Great angle; the head-first approach transforms us in a third-party bystander, arriving seemingly too late to witness the butchery, and to prevent it from happening. With that, your design actually introduces a sense of time; a sense of inevitability. 

 

Will dismount my philosophical high-horse now; all meant as compliments!

@Raymond: This is precisely the theme of the new novel for which this cover was made. I am very glad that this is recognizable, so great, thank you!

Thanks for your great comment, and for your honest opinion.
