Cover Arton January 20, 2011 at 9:30 pm
Okay, I need some help. Maybe I don’t need it but I’m going to ask for it anyway. Here’s my problem. I drew the original cover art almost 4 years ago and it was the first thing I colored. Now after coloring all my pages and learning tons of stuff I see the old cover and I feel like it needs an upgrade. SOOOOoooo, I gave it an upgrade by fixing textures and adjusting things that bothered me and I ended up with Cover #1 below.
Later I decided it needed more color since it’s the image that needs to punch you in the face and make you beg for more. I decided to add more warm colors to the cover and do my super glowing light technique that I’ve grown to love. I came up with Cover #2.
I was content with cover number 2 until I opened up Cover 1 again and realized that I still love the simple white washed out colors and it’s similar to the opening pages of the book. So after vacillating between the two I decided to just take a poll and get your feedback.
Please take a second to look at the covers and vote on the one that would attract your attention when seeing it in the store. Please ignore the cloth color as much as you can. I still need to get samples from the printer to choose from so it might change slightly. In other words, just vote on the artwork only. Leave any comments or suggestion you want as well.
[EDIT- This poll is closed. It was a 50/50 tie almost exactly. What's that all about? There is a new poll starting Monday morning with more options.]

The poll should be on the left side bar of this blog. Thanks for your opinion!
