Krieg der Welten Buchillustrationen / War of the Worlds book illustrations





I made these illustrations to figure out how I would prefer to do book illustrations for War of the Worlds. The most important thing to me is to catch the unique, scary and turn-of-the-century atmosphere of the book. The comic book adaption I consider could end up in a different style than these illustrations, though (because it´s another type of book media). But I aim to be as same as loyal to the contemporary setting and the subliminal horror that I tried to catch in these "period piece" illustrations. Thus I sometimes also regard them as "studies" in preparation for the graphic novel adaption.
