Fan Art Friday (56)

This week's fan art is based on Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. I recently read the book and loved it. (Review coming soon!) So, I think I might be onto something with these close-up main character covers. This is nowhere near the gorgeousness that is the real Nightshade cover, but I think it's pretty cool. I think I hardcore messed up the calla lilies. (Yes, those are calla lilies. Except that's what happens when they undergo massive photoshopping) But oh well! I got only so much skillz, you know? Anyway, I am pleased with myself this week. What say you?


Comments? Yay, nay, amazeballs or epic fail? Let me know! I love hearing what you guys think!

As always, if you've got fan art that you'd like featured on Fan Art Friday, just shoot me an email at skellington28210@yahoo.com.

ALSO, this is abundantly obvious by now, but I've decorated my blog in celebration of October! If you have any comments/questions/concerns about the new layout (that will only be up until November 1st!) click here and let me know!

Happy weekend!

  1. I like it, but Calla kind of scares me on that cover, maybe it's the angle? I don't know. I really love the bottom section =)

  4. Love the eyes!
    The Calla on your cover does look pretty aggressive and self-possessed. The impression I get from the original is more coy. But, that's not bad, and from what I've read of the book so far, I don't think it's far off of her character.

    Awesome cover!

  5. How do you manage to create something like this?

  6. Holy fudge on a stick! Alright, so I'll admit that most bloggers aren't known for their graphic abilities. God do I feel small. This is such a freaking awesome cover.

    I have got to ask: what program do you use? I myself use Adobe Photoshop CS3 (Extended). Methinks my mom has CS4 (for which I will have to mob from her) but I'm trying to branch out from my regular style. Anyways. XD

    For real...awesome cover. Now how the heck am I supposed to compete with THAT?! XD The thrill of competition!

    New followah over here..!

  8. Wow. No offense to the original designer, but I think your art would make a better cover! It feels more modern, very edgy, and the eyes add that hint of werewolf that just makes it all work. Nice job!
