Xi Mkien Iehor: L-Irdum

The first of a series of promotional illustrations I am creating for my book Xi Mkien Ieħor. I will eventally post them all here. At my booklaunch launch (1st November 2008) I plan to have a display of a single-edition these illustrations.

The book itself does not have illustrations, rather some very interesting design. I created these colour-illos just for fun and the book launch.

I will post the cover art very last ;)

The title of the book 'Xi Mkien Ieħor' means 'Some other place' in Maltese.
l-Irdum means 'The cliff'.

:butterfly: Technique :butterfly:
straightforward airbrushing, with textured overlayed into it in matte-painting-ey style.

I wanna zoom zoom zoom...(no I'm not drunk, ok, I don't take beer that often)

and I'm really really really curious about the book. Even more. How excrutiating.

They don't usually have beer at book launches and exhibs, only wine :)
51stnereid's avatar
That's lame. Beer should be everywhere. You have to drink at least two bottles to get tipsy.

You haven't been to too many launches and openings have you? hehe.

Not one :D
Tell me. Dress code.

No, Lisa, I'm serious. Tell me. I was the kind of person that stayed at home at the time until a couple of years ago.

this is so scary:fear: like they're just about to fall and the blue abyss is opening right in front of their eyes, and they cannot turn back anymore, like in some nightmare when you know you'll make a next step whether you want it or not

Hehe.. in the story, the Lady is showing the boy something a the bottom of the cliff. She is a very powerful sorceress - no one will fall in this case ;)
barbarasobczynska's avatar
btw - very beautifully (and even scaringly convincingly) executed sense of depth:clap::fear:
barbarasobczynska's avatar
