Photos: mostly of ball-jointed Asian dolls (some not quite safe for work), cats, plants; occasionally art; and local Chicagoland scenery. Comments are moderated so they will take a bit to show up.
It usually takes me about 8 versions to get a cover the way everyone likes it. This one may take 9 or 10, but most of it is "set" now. Part of me still likes the Giant Carrot version.

Hey, it's like one of those "Can you spot the difference?" puzzles..How intriguing to see into the process of creating a novel cover! Thanks for sharing your work with us. :3I notice that the gentleman got more muscles between versions, lol. A pity--I rather liked the fleshy folds in his side, it looked very human.
Yeah, the art director was very disapproving of anything that wasn't a "hardbody," so he got buffed up. I still miss the flowers on the dress skirt, too, but for some reason they got hated on as well, so away they went. They probably would have passed if I had hooked them together with lace or fabric scallops, but they probably looked too much like cut turnips in their rough form. :D
