Deadly Past

A while ago, a good friend of mine (who is an aspiring writer) asked me if I'd like to create a book cover for his upcoming novel. So, what you see here is the final outcome :D
The basic story revolves around a japanese samurai from the middle ages who has been teleported into the future to accomplish a secret mission....

Pretty happy that I got it all worked out. Intentionally created at a much larger resolution so that it also works as a poster.

Enjoy :)


Facts:
- original resolution: 7,500 x 10,000 pixels
- PSD filesize: 820MB
- Total working time: ~1month (deduct 1-2 weeks for studying for exams)
