The Big O

Another cover released over at Total-E-Bound.

The Big O by Lyn Cash is the 2nd book in the Kinky Kruising series.

Another sunset and more boobs! LOL. The hardest part was the life preserver. I needed to cut it from the background and change it's perspective, add writing to it and hang it on the rail. It still looks a little off to me. Yes I can see the spelling inconsistency. Shhhh ... don't tell anyone ;) I really should go in and fix it.

I've noticed that I'm starting to dislike some of my previous covers. I guess as I grow, my tastes change. It's funny that it seems to be the covers that I spent the most time on. I was quite proud of those covers at the time. I guess I felt a sense of achievement. Now I seem to look back and think they're overdone. I wonder if that will continue or if I will 'find a happy place' with my covers. Don't know.

That's about it for me. I've got the guilts because I need to get stuck into my Assignment for my Graphic Design course and I've got a few banners to create. All I feel like doing is reading my book Dead after Dark by Charlaine Harris. Well. I guess I'd best get on with it :D

Lynn, my daughter is a graphic art student and is curious what design programs you use to create the covers. She's thinking about applying for some cover artist positions.

I hope it's okay if I ask and please forgive me if it's not.

Absolutely no problems Ashley. InDesign/Photoshop/Illustrator seem to be the one's people are using. I've only got Photoshop CS2 atm but have the Creative Pack (CS3, Illustrator, InDesign, etc) on it's way as we speak.

If your daughter is a student she should be able to get it at a good price. It's normally around $3,000 AUD but I got it for $400 since I'm doing a student. Yay! for courses LOL!

*sigh* let me rephrase that. I'm not 'doing' a student (although sometimes I wish I was LOL). It should have read 'Since I'm a student'. ;)

Woman, none of my covers better be on your regret list. Mine are just as freakin' sweet as the cool ass chick who designed them.

Nah, yours are safe m'dear :D
