Still a ways to go. Shadows? No Shadows? I liked the purple semi-circle until I realized it is physically questionable sooo might go with the bottom for that. Other thoughts welcome :P

Shadows, no. Arc, yes (though maybe not as long). Puddles maybe? I like it better when they're framed.

Oh yeah, puddles of paint to show the ground plane. Dope! And keep the arc. Much more dynamic.

Pretty cool so far man...
I love your book choice and think the use of sumi-e like fighting splats is pretty rad. I say arc as well, and shadows.

Here's what I'm working with so far...

The Jabberwocky slain by "unnamed hero" - I will call him Hiro Protagonist...

Put Hiro in the classic David pose as it seemed fitting...



What's it need?

Depth. Some jabberwockish foresty business in the background. Simple though. Just tree silhouettes or something.

I admit, I am still laughing over that one. Also not sure if it is utterly ridiculous or has potential as a future book title...

Rasabi, watch the location of the puddles... not many women will enjoy having one blue breast and one purple. (I really like the colors in general, just not as circles in an awkward location!)

I love this! I think my favorite part is the whale's eye: it has that glassy "dead" look to it.

So do I go with the Experienced Version, the Innocent Version or both?





William Blake wrote about the Lamb, in terms of innocence, but he also wrote of The Tyger and painted dragons, symbolic of experience. I couldn't decide which animal to use for "Experience", so I tried to come up with something that could be either (using my early edition D&D cover of a dragon and a couple of tiger pics as inspiration), or a bit of both.

I laughed at both the concept and the design itself; I love it! Will the magenta pig nose end up on top of a nipple? It's the most prominent "pop" of color in the design. Although as I look at it again, I suspect it is in a nipple-philic location, but I also think it wouldn't be obvious when it was on a body unless it was a really cold room or something.

Lyonscc, I got kinda dizzy looking back and forth between the two options. And then I thought about looking down all day and being able to read my shirt and I got dizzier and I pictured myself falling off a curb while reading my shirt. So that's not very helpful to you.

This is what we have for this derby, do you like the colors?? We think that Alice in Wonderland need bold colors...

Add any original text on the book?

@rasabi, definitely the bottom version -- no puddles. I do like the huge arc on the top one, though. The only issue I have with the characters is that the anatomy of purple gets a little jumbled -- it's hard to make out his arms.


I think it's a killer design as is; it pulls off that simple tapestry look. I also think you should go with "The War of Art".

You're right about the colors, they definitely pop. I don't think you should add any specific text, partially because you have the cartoony look down really well and partially because it's tough to get an all-encompassing quote for the story.

Perhaps some scribble-text on the pages? I think that would fit.

Be very careful on that one. What we think is humorous and such can be very offensive.

I was joking because the original rule was "no Bible". I wanted to shed light on the omission without saying "hey might want to prohibit other religious texts"
It is my way.

It might be cool to make the shadow on the book look like a hole. No text needed then.

Oh, and one other thing - the two flamingos behind the queen look like her arms. I just realized they weren't. Maybe space them differently.

Augmentation is good, but I would use "arm" instead of "arms."
