Automotive Report Cover Illustration (October)


This is one of the more elaborate illustrations I've done for Allen Forkum's paper. Once we decided on the motif, I discovered the execution would be best handled in Photoshop layers. Each image was it's own layer that I treated with its own specific light treatment.That is, the cards, the hand, the table covering and the extra deck of cards at the top were illustrated individually, then composed as a final cover.
