If you have a look at Mantic’s blog you’ll see the cover art for DKH 2, and it looks pretty good to me. The whole project is almost ready for the printers, which is always both a nice stage and a slightly nerve wracking one. There’s always a slight worry that what you get back will have some dread problem with it, and though it rarely happens it can go horribly wrong. It’s usually not someone’s fault – more often I’ve seen problems caused by tiny differences is versions of software or fonts between the layout artist and the printers.
The best moment is when you finally get the fresh copy back from the printer and it all looks great 🙂
