Last time I showed off the rough sketch I did for the cover of my anthology, Tales from Ocherva Volume One. A collection of Space Western short stories set on the planet Ocherva from the Galaxy Collision universe.
Today I’m showing off the first design sketch from Byron. The font is not final, he just used that in order to show size. The actual font will have a more Western feel to it. The android model is from Poser and the dunes are actually from Mars. He’s experimenting with colors and eye shapes and the gun amongst other things. But I think you can tell the idea is definitely eye catching. The android is Eighty-eight from the lead-off story, “Tin Star” about an android sheriff.
The reverse tilt of the android’s head is kinda gangsta style, not sure I like that, but we can play with it a bit. The orange colors are perfect for the planet. We’re going to try and make the android a bit more shiny plastic looking. Like a black iPod. I was pretty stoked about the concept and now I’m really starting to love it.
