About two year ago I participated in the Re-Cover exposition, an innitiative of Dutch dance music & nightlife magazine DJBroadcast. We kept in contact through the years and a while back the guys at DJBroadcast asked me to do the cover of their 52th issue!

They briefed me to come up with a cover in my trademark style and I incorporated a bit of a musical theme to tie in with the DJBroadcast theme. The big robot is controlled by a furry alien wearing an eyepatch (the result of a battlescar! Piloting robots can be hard!) and his friends just landed with their UFO to behold the spectacle at hand. Besides the musical theme I couldn’t resist to fit in some retro game nostalgia as you can see by the NES controls on the robot’s torso. The cover was eventualy printed on a nice sturdy paper with a high gloss UV coating which looked awesome in real life, so I included a few photo’s to give you guys an idea.

Besides just creating the illustration I thought it was about time to do a capture of my work process again! So click on the vimeo player below to get a glimpse of how I set up my work using Photoshop! Black Sun Empire and State of Mind were so kind to let me use their track ‘Pitch Dryfter’ as a fitting score (get it at Beatport and al mayor record stores!) and I’ve included some wallpapers as well for your downloading pleasure! Enjoy!

    Thanks guys!

    @Yoshi haha, you’re right! (ik doe hem even in het Engels, dan snapt iedere bezoeker het ;) ) Should get a facebook page indeed, but I rather focus on Behance, Facebook and Twitter for now (oh and this place ofcourse!)

    Tutorial wise: I don’t think I will dive in to making tutorials anytime soon. To be honest I’m not a big fan of them since they tend to colour the outcome of creative people a bit too much. But who knows, in the future!

    Hoe lang heb je hier over gedaan Martijn?

  6. Super Silo

    Hoi Coen! De uiteindelijke photoshoptijd heb ik terug gerekend naar ongeveer 11,5 uur (aan de hand van de capture), maar dat is zonder schetsen, nadenken, koffie slurpen, drukklaar maken en uiteindelijk het filmpje en de wallpapers in mekaar zetten. Dus ik denk uiteindelijk ongeveer het dubbele :)

    Ye I totally understand, well anyways keep it up!
