Mortals came to me with a pretty strong idea of what they wanted on their album cover, not necessarily image-wise but they had certain elements they wanted included, and certain feelings conveyed. Their idea was for an underwater scene, looking up, with the light coming from the surface. With bodies being pulled underwater or somehow entangled with demons or spirits of some sort, conveying a struggle. All of this sounded great to me, I truly enjoy underwater scenes and I immediately had images running through my mind. After some back and forth on sketches, and a shitload of stippling, this is the final image for the album.
