Well, not totally random. This is our first sneak peek at the cover of the Love, Time, Space, Magic anthology!

heart_model_06_texture_01

This (more or less) anatomically correct heart was modeled by yours truly in Maya. This is just the grey skin that Maya puts on the model, and default lighting, but wait till you see what I’m going to do with it!

The whole concept behind the cover is to have an ‘ink drawing’ of a heart, on parchment, that looks eerily 3D. So, to accomplish that, I’ll be using a whole bunch of tricks, such as .png file textures and fancy render layers. It’s so great to have a 3D project again!

More updates on the way as the cover progresses! Wait till you see the font I got… I’m probably more excited about it than anybody else, but it is really, really nice.
