Post-Tweak Art

Posting got seriously postponed today -- my teenager had a Geometry homework project to finish last night that ran into extra innings, snarled thread, bent nails -- you know that string art thing they make them do with the wire brads and the pearl cotton? That one. Anyway, we finally knocked it out, and I've renewed my opinion that high school math teachers are closet sadists.

Final cover art for Twilight Fall:

Final cover art version

The changes are very subtle, but this cover needed very little in the way of adjustments. Two out of three alterations I suggested were done. I think overall Val looks less alien-eyed than he did in the prototype. And while I'll always have a very different mental image of my character, Valentin v. 2.0 works for me.

    I like this cover the most out of all of them (he's so pretty.) The eyes are usually the first thing I notice when I look at the Darkyn covers, they stand out.


  2. I love the branding you have with the cover art for this series.

  3. Okay he's curl up and cuddle yummy. LOL! Very subtle changes, and yes, I agree...much less alien-like in the eyes! It's lovely.

    Geometry teachers are sadists...they have to be. LOL.

  4. This looks terrific....definitely less alien-eyed...great work!!! Now when can i get my hands on it???

  5. Ooo, Daniel Craig as Valentin! I'm going to have to read the new book just to "see" him running around in the whole thing.

    Looking forward to the new book, now more than ever.

  6. You know, I was never really behind Daniel Craig as Bond (probably because I'm not really a Bond fan, and he'll always be Sean Connery to me)...until I saw the movie. He SO sold it. And now he's a Darkyn? Woot!

    But the guy on the cover is perfectly lickable, as well. No, that's not a misspelling. Heheh. I love your cover art.

  7. This is GORGEOUS! I think it's my favorite of all your covers. Congrats!!!
