The Dæmons

Oh dear, the Master has summoned the last Dæmon, Azal, and now all Mankind is facing annihilation…

My alternative cover for The Dæmons is now available to download from Velvet Jacket. For this cover’s background notes, I’ve looked at some of the Photoshop techniques I used. I hope it’ll be of interest to other cover artists and non-Photoshoppers alike.

    luv this cover, way better than the official Beeb version – definitely going to be investing in paper n ink to print the back catalogue off asap 🙂

    Hi Joe,

    Just wondered if we could expect any new covers any time soon?

    Can’t promise when, I’m afraid, but I will catch up as soon as I can. This close to the end of the range, I’m determined not to fall at the final hurdle.

    Hi Joe,

    just wanted to thank you for your photoshop tips… as a fellow cover designer (not in your league though), I wouldn’t object to you doing more of these posts!

    You’re welcome, Brian, I hope they are of some help. Of course, they’re just some techniques I use — as I said, there are probably other ways of achieving similar results, so play around as you might find something better, or at least which works better for you. I’ll do more if some specific approaches arise that I think may be novel to others.
