Oliver Twist | Book Cover Design

The process for this illustration started with a rough sketch. This was replaced with a pen outline and some detailing which was then covered in a watercolor wash. The last refinement shows dark and subdued watercolor tones creating a tense, discordant atmosphere.

Some digital enhancement was added to bring the colors and textures to life.

A blend of classic and modern characteristics were added to the layout for a cohesive overall design. The balance of dark and light in the illustration and layout metaphorically reflect the story’s contrast of characters.
