A little (tiny) bit about process.

I'm pleased to say that since launching this new website/blog, I've had lots of positive feedback. I was also kind of surprised, to be honest, that people have been asking me questions about my work.

My cover for the Old Man Lizard / Earthmass split in particular, has had a few people asking about how the illustration was created. The short answer is that it is a sort of collage - using a photograph as its base with sections duplicated, a scanned found image added on top and some digital colouring and wotnot towards the end.

I thought I'd post some images of this stuff, to give an insight. I'm not going to be doing a step-by-step tutorial or anything (mostly because I can't remember it, step-by-step) but here are the elements and a few choice points in the process.
