FALLEN SKY - Girl:Fusion cover


Don't worry, I don't count this as a "real" post. This is basically in response to Mike Nason's comment on my choice of colour. This is the artwork with the typeset for the cover. I like the layout and I think the choice of pallette draws the eye - especially on the noisy comic book racks. On a nice shiny paper stock it would look really nice.

I especially like the placement of the logo.

well I disagree...

um, I'm not sure about what, but I still don't like it!

so there.

sure, now the design makes good sence, but the colors still suck...

again, it's just personal tast, I hope the book sells really well all the same.
I'd probably look at it 'cause there's a chick on the cover...just like so many other guys I allways flip through the books with ckicks on the cover.

so sue me, it's only natural.

later.

Mate, there's enough room here for both of us.

KILLEROO: Damn. I love the composition... and this is gonna kill you laughing... But i hate the colours! LOL!! I think the blue works great as a fill light, but I'm not big on it as a main light. Technically, it's nice tho. Rufus' hand holding the cigar is brilliant.

FLESHWEAPON: Cool name! Lurve that cover!
