Software used:

Then, with that picture and the initial sketch, I did a quick digital mockup of the full picture as a cover, trying to match the mood I had in the original sketch, and adding basic fonts to check for title placement options (Fig.08).

At the end of this phase, I drew a final sketch on paper that would serve as the line foundation for the painting (Fig.09). I scanned the line sketch into Photoshop and made it a separate layer. I pushed contrast and brightness on it, so that the whites were whiter and the grays blacker. Then I turned the layer onto multiply mode to make it transparent and created another layer underneath.
