Summer time: new book covers

Hello, fellas and playas! ;)

It's mid-summer and it's also a very long time since I posted anything here. I am rather busy to post anything. I've been working on several book covers since my last blog post and, of course, on my big project: the piano room (for the latest WIPs check this forum post on the VrayforC4D forums). I've been unable to complete the final renders, due to crashes and very long render times, in early march, this year. A few days ago I resumed work on the project. I hope to get it done this year.

For more details about each book cover, please click on them. Here they are:

Faronir - Raue zuflucht by Michael Auerbach

Semantic 3D object maps for everyday manipulation in human living environments by Radu B. Rusu

Synthesis and Catalytic Applications of Carbene-Functionalized Hybrid Catalysts by Alexandrina D. Rusu

The reliability and the availablity of the distribution systems of electrical energy by Simona Dzițac

For the Faronir novel written by Michael Auerbach, I tried a different approach, which I hope was successful. Until now, I always had to do book covers on scientific subjects, like artificial intelligence, robotics and mathematics. I never had to deal with literature. Being the first book of this kind, a science fiction novel, I wanted this cover to stand out in my gallery. I hope you find it great. A great amount of effort and time was put into getting the book cover right.

Besides book covers, I also did the logo and the new interface for the PaintWeb project of my twin brother. Some of the frequent visitors of our site already saw the new logo, but for those who did not, here it is:

I've also done other small projects, but I won't post them since they are insignificant.

'Til next time, I wish y'all the best and have a nice summer. I hope to be posting more stuff during the year.

Two new book covers on A.I.

Buenos dias!

Last week I've done two new book covers. The first one was for a book on artificial intelligence by Ioan Dziţac. I chose abstract imagery and I used a colour palette which suggests a high-tech world. Special thanks to Lucian Marin for the suggestions on typography.

The second book is about new paradigms in artificial intelligence authored by several people. For this one, I illustrated fuzzy logic in two ways. For the front I did something rather complex, strictly related to mathematics, but for the back I did something more "humane".

'Till next time, best wishes to you :). Oh, and... it's almost Christmas. I wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I doubt I'll post anything new until next year.
