Ket-Ralus: [gallery]

In preparation for FC, I've created a design for the cover of my <a href="http://ket-ralus.com/journal/books/reptiles-of-the-mushroom-kingdom/"><em>Reptiles of the Mushroom Kingdom</em> book</a>. I've actually been waiting to do this since AC '08, but have shuffled it aside like so many other things. I'm rather satisfied with my work here, since paint pens aren't always easy tools to work with. However, since this book has a canvas-bound cover (as opposed to the smooth-ish surfaces of the other books) there was little risk of smearing. I did the scan before applying the packing tape this time. Also, the tape covers the entire front of this particular book, though I'm skeptical as to whether it's actually needed for a canvas-bound surface. Only about four more days now...

BlueVmon: XD I must say that is so adorable. Love the fonts you used on it too honestly, and the star at the end looks so cute XD

Very nicely done indeed! It's a shame I won't be able to see it up close! But You must let me know what other people at FC think!

Ket-Ralus: Hehehe, thank you. =} I lucked out in that I had (or bought) all the right materials to make this come out as well as I did. Here's what I used: <ul>
<li>Elmer's&copy; Painters&copy; - Opaque Paint Marker - Medium Point - Green</li>
<li>Elmer's&copy; Painters&copy; - Opaque Paint Marker - Medium Point - White</li>
<li>Sharpie&copy; Poster-Paint - Water-Based Opaque Paint Marker - Medium Point - Metallic Silver</li>
<li>Sharpie&copy; - Permanent Marker - Fine Point - Black <em>(to correct minor mistakes)</em></li>
<li>Sanford&copy; Major ACCENT - Highlighter - standard yellow <em>(used on the star)</em></li>
<li>Prismacolor&copy; Col Erase&copy; Pencil - Non Photo Blue <em>(used for the initial sketch)</em></li></ul>

I'll let you know if I get any feedback on this at FC. And I would like you to see it up close sometime. We need to meet up eventually, somehow. ;}
