A New Pre-made Cover

Been a busy couples weeks of commissions but this morning, I figured I’d try to squeeze in a pre-made before the weekend swallows me up. Enjoy!

Pre-made pieces are $100 for ebook standalone covers, and can be expanded into print jackets for a $25 charge. For more info on our design services and prices, click HERE.

Commission Complete: Garret Schuelke’s GODAN

I met Garret online first and eventually in person while camping out with Michael Allen Rose and Sauda Namir for Chicago’s Printer Row, a huge book festival that shuts down a few city blocks.

So, I was more than happy to help when he asked me to help flush out an interpenetration of his character GODAN. He sent me some reference material and after a quick chat, I made a sketch to get my placement set and then, some hours later, came up with this:

And let’s take a look at the rough sketch and line work to see just how far things progressed from pencil to the end result:

I tend to go fairly rough and fast when it comes to pencil work that I know will end up digitally painted. So as I soon as I was finished, I could see that proportion would need to be corrected once I got to the coloring phase.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and as soon as the current docket lets up, I definitely want to play more with this approach.

New Stock art and Now Introducing Premium Packages

It occurred to me that it might be real nice to have a package available for authors who want more than just a book cover version of their product. I’ve done a lot of book shows in my life, and it’s always cool to see a book’s eye catching art as a poster, or buttons, or stickers. A lot of my latest work has been built at larger sizes , so last night, I went ahead and split our Pre-Made Section in our Design Services into two categories – Premium and Standard. The initial purchase for an ebook/jacket is exactly the same for both categories, but the Premium covers can be expanded to 11×17 inch posters and various other larger merchandise like shirts, banners, etc. etc.

If you are buying a Premium cover, it is not required to expand the package and spend the extra cash. It simply just gives you the option.

Premium and Standard can both be made into smaller items like book marks, stickers, ads, and buttons for an extra charge, but the Standard covers cannot really go up in size because they will distort and lose quality. The Premium package begins at an extra $150, and will provide the author/publisher with a hi-rez file with the book cover and its text. You are not just buying a poster version of your book, but essentially buying the rights to resale this poster as your own merchandise, and keep the profit all to yourself. Each item beyond that will be a smaller charge – items like buttons, stickers, ads, and book marks for example – are easy to retrofit and begin at $25 per item. Some items will need to be discussed because time and difficulty can be a thing. If you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to us at roosterrepublicpress@gmail.com.

Now let’s take a look at the two new covers – The Ritual, a Premium, and Bladepunk, a Standard cover.
