Matt Bogacki Scifi Cover Sketches
Top right: Sketch for Fantastic. I was thinking about frogfish and how they use their tongue to trick fish into thinking it is food and then eating them. In this sketch I had an idea of humans discovering a small civilization on another planet that is actually a giant frogfish alien bating the humans to the planet so it can eat them.
Bottom left: Sketch for Weird Tales. I was thinking something along the lines of a cult of sorority girls who murder the jerky frat guys at their school.
Bottom right: Sketch for Fantastic. For this sketch I had the idea of this parallel universe where humans were pets to an alien race and this would be an ad for some sort of pet food.
I ended up going with the idea of humans being bated by a giant alien frogfish for the Fantastic magazine cover. I felt like it was the most interesting composition and I was also fond of the idea. Here I have the black and white sketch and the colors I was thinking of using for the final.
