Mount Vernon News in Ohio did a yearly automotive publication called Under The Hood. I did the post-production and graphic design work for the 2010 cover.
Creating the cover:
I wanted to create a dynamic image for the Under The hood cover. I liked the idea of an action shot of a car racing down the road. Due to the lack of time and resources to capture the principal photography myself, I started with 3 stock images. I took the 2 cars and put them on an open country road. I felt the scene lacked drama so I added the breaking storm to the sky and water to the road. After some time of digital painting to make the scene more believable I had the final image to use for the cover. The rest of the photographs for the cover were stock images pulled from the web.
