SPIKE cover suggestion by oomizuao SPIKE cover suggestion by oomizuao
I was just playing around with the idea of making a book cover for "SPIKE"... :p
This was inspired by the coloring style of Marco Mazzoni (marcomazzoni.tumblr.com/). I painted it with watercolors, photographed it with my Samsung tablet and edited it in Photoshop.
I kinda like how it turned out... ^^;
What do you guys think of this? :)

I like it a lot! But.... the way I've always imagined the characters are anthro, and that image has always stuck with me, and it fits well with the atmosphere. (and most of your art on SPIKE is anthro as well) It also makes the characters more easy to bond with as well (added cuteness n'such) , which is one the best things about the novel. If you don't want to limit the flexibility, however, may I suggest something along the lines of the note Sam made with Spikes name in the heart? I'd love that cover very much!!

Although this is a good cover, I don't think it would really be a good choice for your novel. But still, very amazing.

i really like it. i think it'd be perfect for the book cover, and i know a lot of people imagine the book anthro right now, but once it's in public, people won't know that you've done anthro artwork, y'know? So I believe this would be awesome. It reminds me of the prologue too.

I like the rough layers of color. The blindfold and darkness really work well to give insight of what the story entails. I do however like the FEARS piece you did a while back. I sort of think it might make a great cover for the graphic novel. It's also very expressive of what Spike deals with and a few elements in the story.

How's it so far? I hope your doing well.
