Here's a bit about the process: I always find drawing things that need to appear random (like the star field) to be more difficult than they should be. Ultimately, I ended up dotting each star individually... it's a real Christian Bale in American Psycho type moment but I wanted them to run across the sky at a diagonal and felt that was the best way to do it. The lighting effect ended up looking really Deco to me and I reinforced this with the headline lettering. Rendering the iceberg was the most time consuming element. I ended up layering three blueish green colors on top of one another (darkest to lightest) to achieve some of the more subtle gradations and value changes that ice faceting would have. The stars, moon and light water highlights all glow in the dark.
