Sleepless - Contagion Album Cover

This project was commissioned by an Australian metal band. The album's tone is an examination of beauty and decay and they needed artwork that would visually represent the underlying meaning. The client explained what they needed via email. I did an initial sketch with pencil and paper and got approval to move forward. I then cleaned up the sketch with ink and sent it for feedback. The next step was adding colors and effects. Once again, including the client in every step of the process until the final product is ready for the printer.
