Rui Ri­cardo ex­plains his unique iso­met­ric cover for this clas­sic read

Computer Arts - - Project Diary -

Blooms­bury liked a pre­vi­ous il­lus­tra­tion I did for the St Moritz 2017 win­ter games, which used an iso­met­ric view. I like this type of per­spec­tive a lot; it gives the il­lus­tra­tion a graphic and slightly geo­met­ric look. I wanted this to feel a bit like a model-train town where the train goes full cir­cle, as a metaphor for life. I usu­ally start with one or more pre­lim­i­nary pen­cil sketches. Once my client is happy with the com­po­si­tion I use it as ref­er­ence for the dig­i­tal il­lus­tra­tion, start­ing with block colours, then do­ing smaller and smaller de­tails. Only a few tweaks were made – I guess we were on the same page for this project.
