Now that the Bolthole is releasing more information about their second anthology, Marching Time, I can show you the art cover I’ve created for them. The theme for the book is war stories with a time travel aspect. Once more, the Bolthole finest writers are teaming up for this anthology. I can’t wait for it to be released.

It is always a pleasure to work with creative, crazy people, it make my work even more enjoyable. Ross O’Brien, the manager of this anthology, was very open minded and more or less gave me free reign to work on the cover.

I hope to cross paths with the Bolthole again in the near future!

P.S. Don’t forget we’re now on Facebook!

  1. Aquí si que le metiste punche Mannuel. Muy, muy buena carátula.
    Como recomendación: Chequea estos demos y lo que puedes hacer con el Painter.
    Ese programa es para ti. (este es un poco largo, pero vale la pena).

    Y si sale muy caro comprarlo allá, recuerda que en este bendito país, lo podemos “conseguir” para los amigos. ja.

    Un abrazo:


    1. Gracias Ricardo. Voy a mirar los links con tranquilidad. Usé el Painter hace unos cuantos años, pero estaba muy acostumbrado al Photoshop como para sentirme cómodo. Sin embargo la interface del último Painter la veo muy bien. Voy a bajarme una demo y te cuento 😛
