Creating cover art

This is a fascinating pictographic story of the creation of cover art from the artist's point of view. She also talks a little about each step.

Here are a couple of highlights, but I recommend looking at each step if you're interested in how some artists go about creating the image they want for the cover.

 Selecting costumes
 Posing models
 Getting the right shot
 Choosing the right shot

I'm sure not all artists work the same way, but this is still an interesting window into something most of us only ever see once it's complete.
