Illustrator / graphic designer / comic creator says hello ...
« on: December 22, 2018, 01:06:48 pm »

Hello,

I'm here mostly for the possibility of designing or painting covers for self published books.  :)
Is kind of different to what I have been doing for many years (board games art and its g.design for sending to print, graphics for video games, web design & coding, 3D modeling & animation, comics... I'm 46, been doing all my life this sort of varied stuff, mostly at companies, now freelancing)  ...But I love the idea, as is just that one illustration that has to be beyond excellent (instead of 75 for a card game :D ), and you get to change constantly of motive and even genre with every cover... Dunno, seems it's going to fit me like a glove.  :)

Cheers to everyone 8-)

    Welcome. :)

    Making a good cover is tough. I've only dabbled and I was satisfied with the results but I could not imagine trying to do many of them regularly.

    I have made covers for board/card games.... which in a way (also, they are usually quite bigger) requires similar amount of work... So, yep, not too optimistic in that regard ;)
