DotSW - Cover by Nytrinhia DotSW - Cover by Nytrinhia
To be updated as it is completed.

Made more edits. Again, thoughts and comments are welcome :3


----------------


.......I think it's finished. Idk. Anything to point out would be welcome.


-----

Completed Eshal's highlights and shading as well as values. Critiques are welcome. Anything, thoughts, opinions to make this better are welcome. This is definitely NOT my favorite composition ever. In fact, I rather hate it. But *shrug* I have to do what is due.

-----

Added texture and refined the lines and began adding color.

-----

Mock cover for Daughter of the Spider Weaver. And a little blurb so you can get a little insight into the story.

When I finish it, it will have a watermark on it, sooooooo yeah, enjoy this until then.

Characters and story belong to me.

Glowy O.O I like it! The coloring on the web makes it feel much closer than it did before. I'm almost afraid to say it cuz I'm not sure you would like it, but it reminds me of the movie spiderman. Just the intro part where the camera is going through the webbing for the opening credits. That's what I mean by it looks much closer.

I like the purple lighting in it. I feel its more efficient in the cover.

Oh wow! I really like this one best. It's the perfect combination of both versions!

I'd say this one is perfect. :D The dual color scheme (golds/orange, and purples/whites) really adds depth to the whole thing. Really REALLY nice.

Very pretty! You mentioned that you don't like the composition because because it doesn't hold well as something other than a cover. Was it supposed to be something other than a cover? It's an awesome cover. The only suggestion I have is for the description. It sounds like Raahil is the main character, but the title and cover makes it look like Eshal is.

Actually, when I first started sketching for the cover, it was supposed to be a well composed illustration that could be used for the cover, being a stand alone piece as well as an excellent cover. But then my teacher vetoed the composition I had, so I had to come up with something new that fell under his instructions. I do like it as a cover, but the illustrator inside me wishes that it could work more as a stand alone piece. Because right now it has to have text or it looks horrible.

Well, it's true that it needs the text of the title sitting there. But I think versatile pieces like you were trying to make tend to not fit as well as something made for that specific purpose. It could still fit, just not as perfectly. And I think this fits perfectly as a cover.

It's told from Raahil's point of view, and Eshal is the secondary main character. She is the key point in the overall plot, but characterwise Raahil is the character most identifiable and has a better voice and PoV for entering the world and story.

I feel like there should be a little itty bitty tiny bit of wrinkles in that front thing on the dress, and maybe a little on the rest of the lower torso, too. Unless it's supposed to be a really thick material. Idk.

mmm I understand what you mean. It is very thick material. Like... if you've ever held cowhide used for chaps, it's pretty much like that.

That's what I was thinking it was. Maybe a bit of leathery texture, then?

I think it looks lovely. The final result is really something spectacular. I really like the purple and gold juxtaposition: they're one of my favorite complementary colour schemes. Purple and Gold. I think my favorite things are the girl and the glow of her/the title. I also really like the moon.

Great job.<3

Very nice! The lighting really helps to add direction to the webbing. And great job on the frame around the bunnies! Definitively an improved on the gun barrel effect! :D
If you're looking to make a few changes still, the only thing I'd suggest is to make some 'magical flashes' coming from the text going outwards in a circle similar to the bunny frame (but not as many) just to tie things in together from front to back.
But really this looks great!

Tis coming out very nicely. I was curious if you are going to only have a scratchy looking golden background, or are you going to add more designs to it?

hmm.. I don't know... I think I liked the webbing before. The color change is nice, but the magical flow of web really caught the eye before. Now it's just... glowing cobwebs :(
I really like the dress now though. The golden glow over it is perfect. ^-^

the webbing from the sketch? hmmmmm... the reason I changed it up is because of the resolution. It was actually easier to do this than to try making the strokes again. I don't know if Photoshop can handle it, but I'll definitely try. Thanks :3
