Faustcoven - "Hellfire and Funeral Bells"
I finally found a place in Lynchburg, VA that had one, and had them scan the drawing. I'm still not sure that it was a better option than having a professional photographer shoot it, but since I'm not in as close of contact with the person who has a lot of experience with that now, and I didn't have to deal with any blurry edges or carefully adjusting levels and contrast, it was a neat experience. I might be going that route more often for commissions.
The drawing itself is done in the same style as the last two, although I tried to add a lot more depth and darker values in this one. There's a lot more specific details, as I tried to incorporate many of the songs themes into the cover. I wanted to do something that you could look at for a long time, finding new details, although this is no "Somewhere in Time".
