Voyager Picture

The last two weeks I was very busy - I had to paint the cover for the coming Manilla Road cd. They are an Epic Metal band and exist for over 30 years now. I love their music since I´ve heard it for the first time in 1994, so it was a great job to do this!
The strange shape of the skull on the spear was an idea of the great Eric Larnoye (R.I.P.) who did the covers for the band in 1985 and 1986.
I only had 1 week to finish this, wich was not that much (and I even didn´t have the time to work on it every day)
Acrylics on pressboard, 42 cm x 45 cm

Here´s the finished cover with a little computer help (I also did the layout):
