So the one thing I miss about writing is world building. It’s actually my favorite part of the writing process, and I have been tinkering with a world building making a secret society or underground of witches (which is gender neutral in my world) called Witchkind. I had the vision of a piece connected with my Witchkind world. And to me, Stiles is connected to this world (plot bunny ahoy)! And then I found the model for his body, and it evolved into a rocker/glam  rock kind of feel. The hardest part is getting the background just right. This piece was so difficult, with so many, many pieces. I really love the end result though.

The-Window-To-NowhereSo I have been sick lately and that has taken a chunk out of my art and blogging time. I’m feeling much better now, and I’m decided to do a simple photo manipulation to get back into the swing of things after my unexpected hiatus.  I really love the end result. The hardest part was cutting the existing background in the windows and getting the lighting and shading just right. In the end, it turned out pretty well. 🙂

Scifi3So I wanted to do some scifi book covers, and I actually recently purchased some scifi stock images and I saw the model while searching through Deviantart. I just had to make it. I really love it and although it looked simple, the text was the hardest part.

Home-On-The-Range2So I wasn’t really happy with my first cowboy themed book cover, and I wanted to do more work with male models and I so created this. I’m loads happier with this book cover than the other one. Everything in it is actually photo manipulated and I had a ton of fun making it.

Leah Clearwater Yeah, I blame Das Mervin for this. I currently doing my annual re-read of her Twilight sporkings and my favorite character from the series is the much pissed upon Leah Clearwater, and I got a plot bunny and I ended up doing this.  I really love it, it’s simple but badass.

St. Louis This is another book cover where I wanted to do something really diverse. I am all about diversity in media and in my real life and thought it was high time to put my money where my mouth is. Again, I saw the model and I was instantly inspired by blues, and jazz. Then, I thought about my friend Starr who has encouraged and cheered me on since the get go and she lives in Missouri. So I decided to do something with St. Louis, and then to parallel the who blues feeling I actually made it blue.

Shut Up and Drive I wanted have a more diverse set of book covers, and I decided to do something with a man on the cover. I saw this photo with the model and I was instantly inspired.  The model already had desert background, but I wanted to expand the scale of the background. I really like the end result.
