This is fantastic Shell. The project I have set for my Photoshop/Illustrator class for assessment is a wrap around CD cover. Would you mind if I used this to show them a REALLY GOOD example of what I expect?
Hope all is well with you. Miss everyone around here. I'm busy, exhausted BUT loving it. Except there is NO time for my own art and I'm pining for it.
This is a very relaxing picture--both the colors and the symbols you use. My first thought is that it was a music cover, but it definitely works for a book cover as well! The black bird in the corner definitely gives the paranormal feel. Good luck in the contest.
