Throwback Thursday: Tempered Steel Covers

In my advanced graphic design class, we operated as a student-run design studio and accepted real jobs from southern Colorado non-profits, such as the student literary magazine, Tempered Steel. These were my proposals for the spring 2013 cover, shown here in 3D mock-up.

These were created using the matte painting process in Photoshop, a method of combining painting and photography for a seamless, fictional landscape.  They feature my own painted planets, creatures, skies and photos that I took in southern Colorado. The logo was a pre-existing design supplied by the client.
