Elemental Cover - Ice

Last but not least, we have ice. Originally, I wanted to make this water. However, Ice just seemed a bit bolder. Plus, Ice seems more like the opposite of Fire.Elemental Cover - IceI rather like this poses. There’s something about it that says, “Here I am! I’m confident enough to be me.” If you haven’t seen the other covers to this set, check them out. Fire is linked above. Here’s earth, and here’s wind.

Elemental Cover - Fire

Sunsets, sunrises… There’s something special about them that is just too beautiful. Sometimes I wonder if it’s because it’s out of reach. It makes me wonder what’s over the horizon… Where is the sun disappearing to or where has it come from? Anyway… next up is the fire themed cover. If you missed the last two covers, check out wind and earth.

Elemental Cover - Earth

Life is finally starting to slow down again, and I’m feeling a lot more focused and productive at work. ๐Ÿ™‚ I took two classes this semester. With everything going on in life and at work, I think I hit my breaking point. It definitely affected my school situation. Not only did the stress cut into study and homework time, I became forgetful.

But like I said, I think I’m back on track again… at least getting there. I have one exam left this week, and I’m taking the summer off. I need a break. Okay… enough rambling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Back to the series I’m working on. I know I said I’m going to just focus on Saturday posts, but like I said… I’m getting back on track. I found a bit of inspiration. So, here is earth.Elemental Cover - Earth

I decided to use different models with each cover in this series. It just seemed the right thing to do. When I think of different elements, I think of the personalities that go with them… and those personalities are all different… have a different feel.

I’m not sure what’s next. Fire, Ice… well, it’ll come this Saturday.

I’ve wanted to do an elemental series for a long while. However, Iย just gotten around to starting them. What I have in mind is wind, fire, ice, and earth. Up first? Wind. ๐Ÿ™‚
Elemental Cover - Wind-01What I like about this cover is the simplicity. I think because there’s not a lot happening in the cover, it provides an opportunity to focus on the important aspects of the scene… the woman with her hair upswept by the wind, the flock of birds in the background, and the sky breaking through the mist. I’m rather fond of this one.

Little Runaway Wraparound Cover-01


I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about runaways. They’ve been on my mind though. Being a teen runaway seems so lonely. How bad does life have to get at home to push a kid to runaway. I imagine whatever experience would lead to a common distrust. No matter how many other kids or individuals a runaway comes across, would he/she ever really be able to develop a true trusting relationship? I don’t know. It’s hard enough to develop trusting relationships when life is “normal.” Well… my thoughts on runaway inspired the cover below.

So, what about you? What kind of thoughts come to your mind when you think of runaways?

The Mask Part 2

I’m rather enjoying these three-part covers. So, I’ve decided to continue with The Mask series. If you didn’t get an opportunity to check out the cover on Saturday, you can do it here. The changes to this cover is so slight, it’s almost hard for me to call them different covers. However, if you’re looking to stay with something very exact, this would do it. On the other hand, if you’re not looking for a series, but rather a particular cover that fits… have a few different choices can’t hurt.

So… what do you think? Are these two covers distinct enough to work in a series? Or do they fit better as stand alone?

Stay tuned for the third cover in this series.

The Mask

It’s been done before… the mask overlooking the city. The other night we were browsing through Netflix and the Phantom of the Opera popped up. So, I thought it would be nice to do one of those popular mask covers. Rather than the full opaque mask, I settled for a more intricate feminine style.

I’m rather liking these trilogy covers. It’s nice to have something of a theme. This time around, I’m playing with brushes again. This trilogy has a simple feel. However, sometimes simple is what is needed. Without further ado… the first cover of this trilogy.

Check back in the next couple of days. I’ll have the second cover posted.
