The Fourth Circle Cover

Zoran Živković had previously used my artwork as covers for Serbian speculative fiction magazine Polaris, and when it came time to publish a US edition of his novel The Fourth Circle he asked for me to provide artwork for the cover. Garry Nurrish did the cover design.

The image was created in 3D Studio, rendered as a 2D image, and then applied as a texture to a jigsaw also made in 3D Studio. The original brief was for a wraparound cover, hence the long horizontal shape.
