Cover Art - The Thirteen Nights of Halloween

I was asked to do some alternate cover art for the Dunesteef's 'Thirteen Nights of Halloween'. I think I took a little too long to complete it - but I DID get it done !

Not the greatest - but there are some bits I like. It's pretty much just a collage of photo elements I stitched together.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #93 Give Up

The challenge has been off the boil for the last few weeks, thanks to all the other art stuff I've got on - but I have been slowly picking away at it.

I'll admit though - this one REALLY stumped me for a long time. I just couldn't think of anything to link into the phrase 'Give Up'.

But then I thought of this :

I'm not especially thrilled with it - but it's done at least 1

Seven to go !

Cover Art - 'A Lovely Singing Voice' - More fish

Got another couple of fish completed :

Learned how to do a three colour gradient shift fill with that top fish - which sounds far harder and more impressive than it actually is.

Cover Art - 'A Lovely Singing Voice' - Fish development

Been working on the tropical fish. The girl is supposed to be looking through a fish tank - not that you would have been able to know that up to this point ... though maybe the rocks gave a small clue :

The bottom one is mostly ( if not totally ) done. The orange / white one has just been started. I'm hoping that they don't make the image look too busy - but I guess the beauty of photoshop is that I can just turn the fish 'off', and rearrange their positions to mt heart's content !

Cover Art - 'A Lovely Singing Voice' - T-shirt, hair, face development

Had some time to work on the covert art a little this evening:

I'm still not overly thrilled at this stage. It's slowly coming together though.

Cover Art - 'A Lovely Singing Voice' - face development

Had some time to develop the face today :

I don't know that she looks particularly young at the moment - but she does look a good deal more sinister.

It's a start.
