It's been awhile, demon wind

Here are the covers I've been working on this month.

Demon Wind is probably my favourite of this group, and really tested my skills. The original couple were clothed so I had to paint out their swimmers. Even went to the extreme of painting the woman's nipple, only to be told it might be a bit too sexy LOL! I tried to paint in some wet cloth, but I ain't that talented, so went with shadowing instead.

Whipped probably took the most time as there were quite a few redo's and touch-ups but I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

WOW Lyn - I think Demon wind is my fav too. You have been a busy girl you talented thing. Keep those great covers coming - I love looking at your new work.

BTW - I like the shadows better than if they were completely naked, because it leaved a little mystery for my imagination. Just like I don't like to see the heroes face on the cover - it never matches my imagination.

Hey there Tracey! Thanks for dropping bye. Yes, I felt that the 'nipple' that I'd painted in may have been a bit too much and I do prefer to leave things to the imagination. I also prefer covers without faces as it is just impossible to recreate a character's features and the result would always be disappointing for a reader. Anyway, must drop by your blog to see where you're up to with that amazing MS of yours. Cheers!
