Only You Can Save Mankind

Book Cover
A speculative front cover for the children’s book Only You Can Save Mankind by Terry Pratchett. For this cover, I wanted to take advantage of the early-90s video game setting, so I looked to primitive real time 3D graphics - like in the SNES games Starwing and Stunt Race FX - and the common technique of dithering to make it look as though there were more colours on screen than were possible.

To give it a feel of authenticity, I initially planned to use a photo of a CRT display as the final cover, however the photos didn't come out that great, so instead I decided on replicating the look digitally.
