Yet more artwork for Borrowed Time. It was an interesting challenge putting this together, as I wanted to get the most depth with the least amount of colors. It was also nice using digital color again, as I've mostly been doing everything traditionally with only digital touch ups.

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".
