New editor, new cover

The former cover that shows Globama sitting on the beach in front of the blockhaus, and Mogette chatting with Bonnotte while walking along the shore, did not give a good idea of the story. I spent a few evenings designing a new cover, where two rat-men are helping a young megaweed take its first steps towards the sea. Globama protects the operation with an assault rifle. Since Bonnotte is a secondary character, she stayed home, and Mogette walks her dog alone, oblivious of what is going on behind her.

To design this cover, I used a very old version of Photoshop:

Capture From top to bottom, the layers are:

  • Name of the author
  • Subtitle
  • The pixellised large title
  • Inking
  • Highlights
  • Shadows
  • Colors

Other layers are pieces of pictures used as reference:

  • an assault rifle,
  • a fat man hodling a gun,
  • me and my dog, standing with hair in the wind,
  • a group of men in front of a train,
  • a personal photo of the blockhaus of the village La Guérinière.
