You didn't ask for my opinion, but I'm gonna give it anyway, so gird your loins…
But first, I have a question: Is the artwork a single composition, or an arrangement of several images?
(it looks to my eye like an arrangement, but I want to be sure before commenting)
Okay.IT was made for me by my cover artist.
I think you misunderstand my intent. This was not a come on for work and I'm not trying to horn in on Jake's biz. It's great that you are happy with it.Thanks, but for me it doesn't communicate the mood of the story.
I've worked with Jake at J Caleb Design for years - we talk at length before he begins, sometimes we exchange sketches, then we keep communication open all the way through the process. I'll continue to use his service.
Slightly off topic (bad Indianroads... bad!) - I like this guys art, nuff said, and he's set to do the cover for Inception... after that though, the cover I have in mind for the Last Ride is outside his bailiwick, I'm looking at other artist's but their work doesn't seem right. I may purchase a photo and do the rest myself.It's probably a little late, but since you asked for opinions, here goes.
First, I find CG covers to be very unappealing. They look cheap and fan-made. If you're paying a cover artist, they should be able to paint you an original work of art that looks good. However, if you're really sold on the CG figures on the cover, maybe ask your artist if they can at least render the two figures at the same resolution. The difference in grain between the two images was very distracting, and made the whole thing look like it was copy-pasted together.
Just my opinion. Feel free to ignore.
