While playing No Man’s Sky I've been turning my favorite screenshots from the game into classic sci fi novel covers. I've made three so far: Ascendant Eden, The Satellite Sun, and The Scavenger of Eden.
Here's my fourth No Man's Sky book cover: Crimson Eden
Here's my fifth No Man's Sky book cover: Eden's Equinox!
For my 6th No Man's Sky book, I went back to my fictional author's early career, featuring his breakout hit: The Children of Anthe
No Man's Sky book 7 is "Time's Mausoleum," a two-book collection featuring "The Scavenger of Eden" and "Crimson Eden" from Albert Q. Tash's "Eden's Outlaws" trilogy. Two books in one! What a deal!
@TandyQ if i haven't made it clear, i love these
@jwisser I'm glad! I halfway posted them here specifically for you~
@TandyQ These are fucking amazing.
@benhamill Thank you!!
@TandyQ That's a great idea!
@TandyQ this is so good.
@brenderlin Thank you!
@TandyQ that’s really freaking cool 😎
@TandyQ these are EXTREMELY GOOD
@TandyQ the $1.25 is possibly the best part but seriously you absolutely aced the style and you used the screenshots perfectly
@InspectorCaracal Thanks so much!
@TandyQ Very cool.
@TandyQ Honestly, pretending I'm playing inside book covers is my favorite thing of playing this game
@TandyQ Yo, I’m really into this
That is awesome! Thank you for sharing!
@TandyQ WHAT!! These are fantastic!!
@amora_b Thank you!!!
@TandyQ these look super rad!
@TandyQ SO Good. IIRC these classic sci fi book covers were inspiration for the artstyle of the game in the first place. So, mission accomplished, I'd say?
@nocksock Yes, exactly! Hearing that inspired me to make these, actually. I wanted to bring it full circle.
@TandyQ Dope! Full circle achieved!
@TandyQ it’s actually awsome how well NMS works for screenshots and photoart?
As a digital painter I’ve been using my screenshots as landscape drawing references for example.
@Doggo Yeah, absolutely! There’s something about how the procedural generator makes such unique worlds that really works for this sort of thing. Using them as reference for landscapes is an awesome use as well!
@TandyQ but these look really awsome! They’re v good screenshots and work very well for the covers used :3
@TandyQ :O I love this so hard
@TandyQ wow these are awesome!
@TandyQ you did your homework, that's for sure! Example: actually old scifi
@Mainebot Thank you! Researching inspiration is my favorite part of working on these, haha.
@TandyQ I’d read them and love every problematic bit
@TandyQ holy shit I love these
@TandyQ wow, really cool!
@TandyQ love them
@TandyQ these are excellent!
@TandyQ Dear people who think NMS is unthinkable to like, it's pretty. There's other shit but it's pretty
@TandyQ These are awesome. Bravo.
@TandyQ Awesome cover. I read this at first as 'Crimson Divide' and when I realized I made a mistake I thought to myself -- this is a good name too. But it sound more 1980s fiction than 1960s and 1970s.
@TandyQ I love your typography omg
@Mainebot Thank you!
@TandyQ aaaaaa this is such a good idea
@modernmodron Thanks! I'm having fun with it!
@TandyQ THESE ARE SO GOOD!
@robin Thank you!!
@TandyQ Did you use Prisma? Or are those effects all yours?
@jwisser Just me and some textures in Photoshop!
