Lady of The LThis was a piece that I couldn’t get out of my head, and I just had to do it. Again, it look simple but when I got into the details then everything turned really complicated. There are a lot components that made up this piece and I think this was one of the reasons why it was so difficult.

ROM2I had to take a long hiatus to do some work on the blogging side, and then my computer died and then I had to set up the new laptop. So long hiatus on the art stuff, and believe me I was sorry to do it. This is sort of a warm up, something familar and supposedly easy. This piece looks easy, but was hard as heck to do. I had to scrap the first piece, and this is the second draft. It really took a long time to get the details right.  It was the lighting and the shadows, and the rose. Don’t get me started on the rose.

Dark-LolitaSo I wanted to tip my toe in some more darker Gothic theme work and I saw the model’s awesome photos and I literally jumped at the chance to use it.  This piece looks really simple, but it took me hours to cut out the platform, get the lighting and coloring just right. I actually like how it turned out, and I’m really proud of it.

Photo Manipulation So this piece turned out nothing like I envisioned it would be in the end. Seriously, it was supposed to have this hot check layout over an American flag  painted car on a road with the sunset. As you can see none of this happened.  I actually like the end result and again it looks simple but this took me like 7 hours to complete *smh*. I think I might do another piece this week, and that’s it. I’m not sure. I’ll see how my weekend turns out.

Xander Harris From Buffy: Vampire Slayer Xander-Updated---FINALSo I’m currently working on a BtVS Xander centric fanfiction story, and I had a vision of Xander that wouldn’t get out of my head. By the way, I really hate plotbunnies. They are evil, evil things. Anyway, this is the result of the that plotbunny. This photo manipulation wouldn’t be as great without my friend Mel, who basically gave some good constructive feedback. So shout out to her as well.

Cinderella and the glass slipperI haven’t done a purely photo manipulation composite in a while.  I recently re-watched the original Disney version of Cinderella and was inspired to do something with it, and this is the result. This  piece was so much harder than I thought it would be.  I especially had the the hardest part with her hair, which was not her original hair. It’s digital weave, if you will.  I tried several different hair pieces on the model,  in the end I modified the hair in the piece to something I really liked and really fit the model’s dress.  I actually tried to extend the canvas a bit and add a coach, but the coach overtook the photo and put the balance of the items in this piece of out of balance   I think everything in this piece is a photo manipulation, and all in all I’m very proud how it turned out.

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.

So this is an idea that has been on my mind for a while. I was inspired by the movie of the same name, because I was always disappointed that the  movie was about a badass team of women action heroes> Instead, we got the incoherent mess that movie ended being.  I was going to make a title movie poster for this, but with the upgrades with the site I really don’t have time to do it. I might do at a later date.

Mother Goose Nursery Rhythm So I wanted to get back to basics, because I’ve been having trouble with a few other of my commercial stuff.  This was pure self-indulgence, and I regret nothing. I had so much creating it, but the file itself had so many groups and sub-groups when I was done that I don’t think anyone but else could make heads or tales on it.   I will shortly be doing some prompts tomorrow for a friend, and then Monday I will be do so more commercial stuff. :)

Arabian NightsI was inspired by the movie and the book of the same title. Instead, the roles are switched are more femslash-y. This is more poster than book cover although you consider this piece both. Honestly, I wanted to do more with this piece, but because the background so superb in both the lighting and color all I could do is add the subjects in and do shadowing.

Taking Risks by DuWinterSo I thought I would challenge myself and dip my toes into full book design. And let me tell you it was a bitch, and bow down to people who have to do this all the time. I’m not completely happy with the book design, but it refuse to come out anyway.  *lesigh*

I want to thank Duwinter for giving me permission for not only allowing me to do the book cover, but for allowing me to convert his awesome story into ebook formats.  Thank you! ♥♥♥

The book is available for download here and be sure to check out the original verison of this story at duwinter’s livejournal.

ETA: I totally messed up the title to the ebooks and the cover. I have no clue how I missed it. The link is now to the corrected version.

Note: You can find the full size versions of these posters here on my site.

Spellbound is a Teen Wolf AU plot bunny born from all the fantastic magical!stiles fics out there in the fandom. I wanted a fic where after Derek and the pack pushes Stiles out of the pack, he finds out that his mother was a witch and that he is set to inherited her powers.  He of course forms a coven with Lydia, Danny, and Kira.  There might be a storyboard for this coming up later in the week. So stay tuned!

Don't Tell Mama

This design was inspired by the early Burlesque posters, and some of the designs from the 1940’s, 1950’s, and 1960’s.  The model is the lovely Dita Von Teese.  This poster was made to complement  a Darcy Lewis not!fic fanfic and fanmix which of course you can read and download here.
