Today's art, and a choice

Actually, the first piece is technically not today's... but we'll let that slide. I was asked most kindly to go back and flesh out the covers of Dark Brothers of the Light, to bring them in line stylistically with, well, there was a strong nod to the Dutch translation of DBOTL #1. And since I was dying for an excuse to play in photoshop (relaly--I'd been wanting to yesterday, but had no inspiration. I spent all of yesterday pretty much exhausted. Did yoga for the first time in forever, and that just made me more tired. Bah! Didn't do it today--double bah. Told myself I'd do it after lunch, then ... kind of ... forgot to have lunch. Let me tell you I was starving by the time Amy came home (around 9p? 10p? Something like. When does Scrubs come on? Just before that.)

On with the show!



And now the choice --


or



or



or




for most of this, istockphoto was my bosom buddy. you may or may not recognize the helm, though, in the first of the two choices -- I made that for the render of the cover of book 6.

I say go with the first one. It has more depth.

or option 3 or 4? =)

I appear to have lost the layer configuration for the one you picked =/

The first one is still my favorite, but in any case I prefer the helm to the full suit of armor. I am not a fan of the gray clouds with the ink dots.

I agree, I prefer the helm to the full figure. #1 is my fav, but #4 comes in second if you can't get #1 any longer.

# 4

It makes the blood look like rain falling on the helm, and you can see the name of the book more clearly than in the other ones with the helm. Great imagery and a clear read of the name are two good reasons to pick this one.

I like #1 also.
