This is the first Maiden cover I have done in quite a while. It was for a kind of retrospective live tour thing where the band were playing songs from "Powerslave" and "Somewhere in Time". The brief was to combine those two sets of images and come out with something that worked. I re-drew the Eddie using the earlier album as reference and I 3D Modeled the gun. I used the original pyramid from "powerslave" because I couldn't see any good reason to re-paint it, but I made it look really old and crumbling using textures I extracted from a real pyramid and some desert photos. I did one of those vortex skies because everyone seems to like them, but I did it with photographs, mostly to see if I could do it. and to give it a more modern look.
