Inhuman | Back cover illustration [updated]

| »

I’m on a roll. Here’s another book illustration finished:

Back cover illustration: Sean’s disabled escape pod approaching the Earth
Sketched, inked & colored in SAI, retouched in PhotoShop CS4 • Tools: Wacom Bamboo tablet

Anyone who’s read Chapter 1 will know what’s going on, here … I know the Earth looks a bit crappy, but drawing a realistic pic of an highly complex arrangement of colors and shapes such as our watery, earthy and cloudy planet is surprisingly hair-pull-inducing, so I copped out and just Photoshopped a photo, instead.
