Dream Storm Sea by Valentina-Remenar Dream Storm Sea by Valentina-Remenar
First of all...happy holidays :santa: :la: Oh my...I didn't post here in a while :omg: I'm so busy that I hardly find some free time... but anyway... this is cover which I did for A.E. Marling's newest novel called Dream Storm Sea (you can purchase Kindle edition here and paperback edition here). I'm honoured that I got a chance to illustrate cover for him. And I had total fun to draw it. I really wanted to draw something different and theme of his book was perfect. I never drew kraken, so that was totally interesting. And cuz I had so many layers, my Photoshop got insane...haha. I can't help myself...I need to have so many layers...(and of course red jellyfishes...again :giggle:). So when I had to draw smaller details I had to make a new PSD file and I drew over JPG file. Other info...like most of time, I drew it from beginning till the end with colors. I really want to draw more environmental pieces like this in future...but that's gonna wait a little ;P I hope you enjoyed this :heart:

WIPs, details and cover from this painting you can check on our Tumblr here :dummy:

:bulletyellow: original size is 3956 x 5085 px (cropped front page- which you see here... 3324 x 4994 px)
:bulletyellow: I had 317 layers (I had 2PSD-main ones...one had 277 layers and other 39...1 layer was just 3D effect edit)
:bulletyellow: I drew it 16.5 hours

I just came across your fantastic piece of art! it is really worth the 16,5h you needed for it! It looks vivid and i love the different colours... from red to blue... i also adore the fact that the sky is the sea and at the same time just sky... Really good work! :D :heart:
