First time posting on Skillshare! I'm so excited to take this class.
I chose the Telltale videogame The Wolf Among Us, which is an adaptation of the comic books titled Fables, written by Bill Willingham.
This videogame has beautiful lighting with pinks and purples painting the night in a mysterious mood, and I wanted to keep that aura with this cover.
TWAU mixes fantasy and urban cities with crimes and fairytale references. I kept that in mind while using both script and inline fonts, and intrincate flourishes mixed with city windows.
The main character is the big bad wolf, Bigby, the city sheriff. I did a little nod to him at the bottom.
These are some of the game visuals for context:
These are some of the thumbnails I sketched, and the lucky one marked with a star.
A bit of the process:
And this is where I am now. I'll definitely take this project to Illustrator to polish all my shaky lines and add all the special pieces Jessica mentioned. I loved the process and the classes!
Every bit of feedback is encouraged! I'm looking forward to make all the corrections and changes to make this cover a good final product.
You can find more of the process over on the gram! @josefinadgm
