After MANY years just coping very popular fantastic books like the Necronomicon or the Gravity Falls Journal 3, I decided to make my very own completely original mysterious grimoire! This book is my own original work and art. It’s obviously inspired in Lovecraftian lore and themes since it’s one of my favorite universes, but I will not reference any specific god or creature. I will try to keep it sort of generic. I still don´t know what exactly will I do with this book. It will probably have some sort of story behind it at some point since I really like worldbuilding but for now, there are only mysterious pages! I will be uploading new pages regularly to it’s google photos folder and will let you know! You can take a look at the new page over HERE! And the google photos folder over HERE!
So, after a VERY long pause, I’m back making new pages! After making Dipper’s journal 3 from Gravity Falls and The Enchiridion from Adventure Time, I thought the logical next step was to make the Magic Instruction Book from Star vs the Forces of Evil and complete my cartoon book collection! First step as always is to make the pages to put inside, so I’ll be uploading the tracings I make as soon as they are ready, when all of them are done I’ll put up all of them in a ZIP for download.
The first step was to print the illustration then cut some thin wood for the cover stick the illustration and copy it to the wood After the drawing was copied I traced it the a pyrograph Then a bit of wood stain so the outer part is darker and the middle illustration pops out Done! Next time… assembling the text block!
A friend asked me for a book design and said it needed to have “a tree and a lion“. After collecting a lot of pic of lions and trees i came up with this illustration I then added some extra elements to complete the cover and finally put some textures to see how it would look in the real world.. Next time… starting the build!
