One more on cover art —

I’m pulling this link out of the comments:

This is the STORMDANCER cover Mary Beth actually had in mind, only it’s really a “making of” post, that shows stages in the development of the cover art. Which is very cool! I really enjoy this kind of post! I hope you do, too.

Plus, hey, a griffin! Which was not even hinted at on the other cover I posted (which I still like, but a griffin definitely improves the cover!)

I don’t mind steampunk, but I don’t seek it out, either. But I need to check out this title now that I know there’s a griffin!

While on the topic of cover design, if you missed it previously, you MUST go watch this “Cover Design In 2 Minutes” thing on YouTube. It is so much fun!

    Wow — that Youtube vid was incredible. I don’t think I’d ever actually realized how much of a role Photoshop plays. Crazy!

    Griffins improve everything.

    Yes, I loved it when I first saw it and it still is one of my all-time favorite YouTube videos — not that I’ve seen a wide range, actually.

    And yes, griffins do improve everything! Actually, though I don’t that I’ll ever get to it at this rate, I have a whole different world in mind with completely different griffins. Like an alternate Eighteenth Century Europe, only with griffins in the Balkans. Someday, maybe I will actually get to it.
