Montana Surrender Cover v.2

This is the new cover for Montana Surrender, a romance novel by Tran mae Simmons.  Like the original Bittersweet Promises cover, this one was only the background image to start.  Trana wanted something attention grabbing and spicy, and I think I pulled it off.

The guy, or really body in this case, didn't need much done.  I added on some hair on both the chest and arm.  The woman, on the other had, had a lot of work done.  First, I had to move the corsett up a bit and then paint out the black & white tube top.  Then I darkend her hair, then added in fallway locks on both sides.  Next, I added in the eyelashes then adjusted her overall skin tone.  The last bit I did was to extend the grass down in the background a bit so that the tree sat a little higher.

On a funnier note, I've noticed that this one seems to be a little too hot for many of the groups on dA.  It's been accepted then removed from three so far.

Bittersweet Promises Cover v.2

This is the revamp of the Bittersweet Promises cover.  The original version of the cover only had the background image and title/author text, and was done quick since she had to get the book up with a limited amount of time. 

For the most part, there wasn't a lot to be done with this one except some clean up.  I added in facial and body hair on the man and evened out the woman's skin tone.  The hardest part was making the sweat.  I'm not overly satisfied with it, but I'm hoping to go back at a later date and fix it.

The Wormhole Project Cover

The finished cover for the upcoming science fiction release of The Wormhole Project by CL Smothers.  This one was fun, mostly since CL had a very clear idea of what he wanted.  The hardest part was finding good star brushes.  The apple was my own creation, and I was super happy that I got a chance to create my own stock for a change.

Also, the binary code says 'The Wormhole Project', repeated several times.
