Book illustration: Perdeliquium
Here is the finished illustration done for my friend Emilio Mejía and his cool project Pedeliquium: A book series based on a previous comic book created by him and a few cool friends, including me, back in the day. He took all the story background he wrote and translate it into a impressive book. I have to say that the story is very well done and you’ll have many surprises in it. I got the fortune to work on a couple of illustrations for chapter four, the Sorrows’ chamber, where the main villain is getting his dark powers. Very cool chapter, by the way.
About the art, I wanted to portray the main character with a strong attitude in front of the Aj-sheut, the dark spirit who wants to destroy him. You may remember the egyptian spirit concepts from a previous post. This is how he ended. Also, if you see closer, I worked the entire drawing with pencils instead of inks and then applied the colors. It has a different feel, more organic, I think.
