    Thanks, Agent... It's my first attempt at a book cover. I'm learning some adobe products for work now so figure this was a good way to learn and stretch my skills. It's way harder than it looks really.

    It really captures the Voodoo spirit well. Good job Madame Kitty!

    Me eyes! Wow! That certainly catches you attention kitty, I like that cover a lot if only for that. A great use of basic colour too. I'm looking forward to see what else you can do.

    Meanwhile maybe I should stretch my skills and see what I can knock up in Paint...

    Judging by the entries here, I say we close down these forums and open a new company called MI6 Community Design.

    Try it, Samuel. But one thing I do for all my creative stuff is do it until I think it's complete and then leave it for a few hours or overnight before publishing. There is usually something I want to tweak after I've been away from it for a bit.

    Paint will be harder because you can't move the layers around after adding other bits...

    ah... the life of artist who is never satisfied... lol... i am the same exact way...... i'll love a design i make - and then 2 days later i'll look at it, and go "crap, pure crap" - gotta start over lol...

    Haserot,

    your latest entry might just be my favourite of all your contributions thus far. There's just something not sitting well with me in the "Live And Let Die" portion of it. I don't know what it is so I can't offer any specific complaints. Superb!

    Absolutely. I could have benefited from waiting a little and not have had to post a revised cover.

    Agent, yours and the others are great too. I'm really impressed. And, if it doesn't take away from the mystery, I'd like to know how some of these were built and from where the images come. I use images from a stock image site for which I pay. I then manipulate the images through InDesign and Photoshop.

    I'd like to know what images are totally original and how they are done. Some of them are in credible.
