BEHIND THE MACBETH PLAIN TEXT COVER
Here's my character sheet design of Macbeth , i drew the style to have a clean line but also roughness to it to go with the subject matter, my editor / publisher Clive Bryant like it all straight away .
After a few weeks once we all got into production of the book Clive reckoned my original figure design for Macbeth would make a great cover, so the art was sent to Nigel Dobbyn to colour , Nigel finished Macbeth's sword tip and did a wonderful colour job on the art , i remember telling him to think Frazetta when colouring it and for there to be a blood red sky.
Nigel also designed the great logo for Macbeth.
the art was used for promo ads for the books and also as a poster and used for the plain text cover, it's funny how a quick sketch ends up being a great cover , here it is...
