Black Swan Little White Lies by Veroine Black Swan Little White Lies by Veroine
an original cover illustration depicting the main character of Black Swan in response to the D&AD brief for Little White Lies.

Cover
in Black Swan, the main character Nina Sayers is portrayed as an innocent, timid, and fragile young ballerina. However, although she grew up having these personalities, Nina truly held a darker side beneath her innocence. Therefore in depicting her character, I took the concept of showing these two sides of Nina. Interpreting both sides of Nina, Nina is illustrated having her dark doppelganger gazing at her in her reflection. Similar to how a blank canvas can be tainted by ink, the use of ink splatters in the background represent her dark side spreading and slowly taking over her innocence. Additionally, the cover is created in black and white to show the contrast between the two personalities.

Tools
Digital painting with Photoshop CS 5 + intuos 3
