Equestrian Elite: Tartarus Infernum (Cover v2.3)



Cover for my epic novel-length fan fiction, Tartarus Infernum. It's the first in its series, which I intend to keep continuing.

I'll try not to spoil anything major, but there's 18 good guys and 6 bad guys IN THIS IMAGE.
There's quite a few more in the story that I simply don't have room for on the cover. :)

The villians and the OC cutie marks I did myself, but since there were already plenty of good canon CM vectors out there, I borrowed some of them from other deviants. Full credits are below. Thank you guys, you all rock.

The fic itself should be ready to publish soon, I've written the entire thing and I'm currently editing and finishing a couple of the major illustrations.

Programs used: Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6

2.0 notes: Major change. Switched from landscape to portrait and redid pretty much everything. Will likely stick with this version with some minor changes.

2.1 notes: Darkened the magnataur, changed the Nighthawk's color scheme, added additional shading behind the shield.

2.2 notes: Greyscaled most of the background villains.

2.3 notes: Background villains were just too cluttered, removed them in favor of a more minimalistic approach. Might change the shading on the shield but otherwise sticking with this.
