Sci-fi cover art for author, Dan Peyton
I loved receiving this brief to do this sci-fi cover art piece. I’ve known Dan for some time now, and often talked to him about working together. When he said he’d like a piece with Star Wars montage vibe, I was eager to get started straight away. Dan’s characters are all fully realised and he has drawn some of them himself so there was a lot of references to check in on. I’m really pleased to have kept to Dan’s mental picture, including the particular costumes and nuances of his characters.
I liked the fact I could block in the scene (left) quite quickly to show Dan. Then the final product was a really enjoyable process.
A bit about me, the illustrator:
I’m Jamie, I am an illustrator, graphic designer, business owner and fantasy geek. I live and work in Sussex, UK.
I love working on fiction book covers and games in the broad genre I like to call “Escapism”… I’m particularly a massive fantasy fan, but love sci-fi and horror too. I’ve been working professionally on video games, books and board games since 2010 and even published my own successful board game: Hero Master: An Epic Game of Epic Fails back in 2018.
I achieved my lifelong dream of regularly working on illustration for the Warhammer 40k IP in 2021, and can’t wait for the next challenge to arise. Shout me if you need me, you can fill in a few details to get the ball rolling, but following the link below.
