Ene alt cover by kafine Ene alt cover by kafine
About three days before my deadline for the book I decided I wasn't happy with the previous cover, and drafted this. I decided I wanted the illustration to cover the front and the back, which is why the composition is like it is.

I didn't finish it in time, but actually I think the other one was more appropriate for the book after all!

Painter classic, photoshop.

I love it!! I love the bright colors, but the top of the sky looks a little empty? No worries, still gorgeous ^^

Yeah, that's because it's a cover illustration so there had to be spaces in it. Here's my mock-up; [link] (It doesn't quite fit because I pasted the text and titles from the finished cover, they aren't designed for this one, but you get the idea)

Thankyou!

Very nice :) I like the one bird behind her that's not part of the flock. Adds a nice touch.

I'm a little confused though - the wind is blowing her skirt very nicely, but her hair seems to be unaffected? Should I hide now? :hmm:

You have a book? Where can I find? :D

Her hair is blowing too :XD: just in a very... unrealistically neat fashion for hair!

I should have brought the skirt down a bit, but I decided I had come too far to go back by then.

really got the water to work in the end and the black tips made instant seaguls :) I don't know if this is nice or not but something about the skirt still urks me, i looks right but some little thing is just still doesn't feel like it sat right to me, however it's still a wonderful image and yes would have made for an awesome cover but I want to read the book :P

Love the little details aswell, the hair was awesome :)

Yeah, I know. I have edited the skirt to brigng the furthest flung edge down a bit, but it's still not quite a natural shape. Blown skirts are hard!
