Tor - The Long Man
Way back in October 2008 I was contacted about doing a cover by Irene Gallo of Tor books for a new novel called The Long Man written by long-time comic writer Steve Englehart.
After doing some initial loose sketches for feedback, the job was placed on the backburner for a while and I eventually forgot about it.
However, late in January the job started back up again and we were able to flesh out the concept for the book a little better. I would describe the concept of the story if I was able to do so accurately--hopefully you get a sense for it from my cover, though.
I ended up doing two versions of the cover, but the brighter colored version is what's going to be published. I think it will stand out more that way. The less saturated version, however, is my favorite of the two.
If you haven't noticed, the process piece I posted a few weeks ago was actually used in this illustration.
The Long Man is scheduled to be released on August 4, 2009.
