Romance CoverChevalier2


Just a little something to get me back in the swing of things.  I saw these two models and I knew I had to use it. The biggest issue was just getting the coloring and the lighting just right. I really like the end result.

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.

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.

Princess2nbI wanted to do more book covers, and challenge myself. The  main part of the challenge was to do a book cover from only from creative common images. And everything is in fact from creative common images.  I also wanted to have a good cache of book covers to sell this summer. I also wanted to practice on making original covers.  Also, I really wanted to use the model, because it’s very rare to find affordable stock images with people of color.

Free Premade Book CoverSo I have been doing a lot of free premade book covers. Mostly, because I been busy with a lot of other things and I wanted to keep my skills sharpened. So here is another free premade book cover. The real difference from my other covers was it was actually the background that determined the color scheme of the piece. I actually had to do some adjusting the model’s shirt color.

Premade Book CoverOh my god, this book cover was a such trial to make. I had to replace the model like three times, and I still wasn’t completely sure about it.

CreedSo I thought about selling this, but to be it reminds me too much of Assassin’s Creed for me to do anything commercial with it, despite the fact these images are licensed for commercial use. This book cover took me forever to do, and the roofs and setting up the city, and getting the lighting and shading just right was the hardest part of this piece. This really was a labor of love, and I’m so proud of how it turned out.

So I was cruising wattpad, because I thought it might be a good place to get exposure.  However, I saw some cute book covers and wanted to try my hand in making something similar. I actually saw the stock photo I used for a few days earlier. I really thought it was cute, and so I decided to do this. I actually used the new technique found with dodging and burning tool in photoshop.

Punk Rock Girl (Fire Down Below)So another premade book cover.  I was inspired by the actual stock photo which is fantastic.  I actually took a regular cityscape and set it in fire (well in photoshop)!  I actually like it a lot, and it didn’t take a whole lot of time to make.  I really loved how it turned out.

Algo Queda Xander-AGUAnother cover for the Xander Harris centric story that I’m currently writing.  The name is in Spanish because a good portion of the over all series is going to be in Spain or Puerto Rico or Chile. I haven’t decided yet.  I blended two pictures into one, because I love the position of the one picture, but my vision had a window. So I just blended them. together. I wanted to add junk, but I couldn’t get the right picture to do that.  Oh, well!

YA Book Cover So I wanted to dip into something YA Premade Book Covers. So I found a summary on Fictionpress. I liked the base concept, but I hated the name and decided to base this premade cover based on the concept.  I really like the outcome, but it took forever to tweak everything just so to make it as awesome as it came out.  This cover for me, is the best original cover to date,  and I practically made it on a penny budget.  I’m just so freaking proud of myself.

LWM_BookCover2 LWM_BookCoverJess, whom I have done two previous book covers for decided that she wanted a third one done for another anthology of her poetry. She wanted something a little different, and I was inspired by some art that I found on pinterest.  Admittedly, it does remind me of the twilight book cover, but I think I put my own special twist on it that anyone can spot the subtle differences :D!

Perdido Book Cover ap_bookcover3Okay, after a week of being so sick that I couldn’t freaking work,  I actually got the acutally urge to write. So I wrote this sad little Buffy fic (I recently read the comics) and I got caught up in a whole lot of Buffy feels. I decided to write a biracial latino Xander (because I love shoving diversity everywhere I can) and ended up with 800 words of weird notfic.


What I posting right is actually the second draft of the cover because I accidentally chose to work with stock that was for DeviantArt use only.  So I had to change the model at the last minute.

Strive Seek Find Yield Star Trek So I always been a huge fan of this fic, it is in fact one of my favorite Star Trek reboot fics.  So when I read that she has given blanket permission on any spin-offs such as fanart and podfics on her works, I nearly jumped at the chance to take a crack at producing a fanart for it. This piece looks very simple, but in fact far from. I had to manipulate everything, and it was way harder than it looks.


ETA: This is like the third time I had to repost this because I keep messing up the title.  I should never post while sleep deprived.
