Xinyi Liu
Her Secret

Book Covers

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I have been interested in the book illustration market. The work is a book cover of a Chinese novel called Her Secret. It is a sci-fi story about a girl who crosses the universe to find the truth about the destruction of her hometown. Since I had never tried sci-fi themes, the story gave me an interest in challenging the sci-fi style in illustration.

How was the illustration used:
The work can be used as book cover.

How did you make this work:
I made this work on Procreate. I am interested in collecting random textures from daily life. I used the curdled milk in my coffee cup to create the value textures that depict a sense of sci-fi in the background. The light dot shapes on windows were created by the inspiration from hot pot oil. I played with random effects based on the topic to describe the story.
