This is a preview of J'Animals' CD cover. I always wanted to create a cover that incorporates fire in some way and when this opportunity came I siezed it. I already created a smoky cover (Adastra CD cover), water based illustration (Darker It Gets) and icy illustration (Violin) so fire was the next element on my list and next logical step :)
The idea was simple: to create each member of the band as if they are up in flames or made of fire. The frontman, or should I say frontwoman Žanamari was a special challenge since I wanted to create her hair in the form of flames. A lot of twaking and patience was needed for this image. The rest was a stroll in the park once I knew how to put things together.
You can see below the original images and the final images.
