M is for... Michael Offutt Says I'm Behind

Apparently, everyone else in the world is up to P now in the epic A to Z blogging challenge.

I tallied the votes from my previous post... then I discarded them all Andrew's note that number 1 comes the closest to feeling like an appropriate cover for his novel, Shadow Spinner.

So, I'm going to play with that as a concept and see how that goes.

Sky is cool!
Tomorrow is Q. Go with the flow, dude.

It makes me sad, because I really like the last one (9?), but I think this idea works better for the cover.

Andrew - I actually agree with you, but I'm struggling with the composition of the image... I need something in the foreground to be really, really close to the 'camera' and I don't know what to put there... it's just a framing device, but I wanted something to be there. I'll just play around some more.

Alex - I'll never skip a letter... NEVER!

That's a purdy sky. Just do what Pagel does and do like 3 letters at the same time to catch up.

Andrew Leon said...

Move Tib to the left and make him closer to the "camera," putting the tunnel more in front of him. I think with a more straight on view, you can make the scene more active when you add in the combatants.

This cover makes me want to know what's inside. Exactly what a cover is supposed to do.

You could always post two letters tomorrow and call it watch your P's & Q's

Glad I found your blog. I may commission you for a cover at some point! Of the previous images, I dig the one you've kept the most.

Being behind is an essential part of the process.

LOL well you were/are behind. Like Tyrion Lannister says, "It's not slander if what you say is true!"
