I have some pretty good news for everyone, especially myself.
To put it simply, I've convinced a good friend of mine to do the cover art for the first book of the Sword of Kirakath, Through the Flames.
And she's already done.
I'll get the original copy of it tomorrow, and I'll scan it to my computer. It's done using charcoals only, and it looks very good. She blew me away with the low quality picture (via camera phone) she sent to me. I saved it to my computer, rotated it, cropped it, and added text to it, so I have a low quality story cover already.
Here it is:
I look forward to comparing it to the scan. I'll probably do it just like I did the one above this, though it's entirely possible that I'll move the title around a bit more. It really just depends on how it actually looks.
The truly funny thing about the picture is that it is very close to how I picture Caleb of Kirakath or his forefather.
On another note, I wanted to use the same font that I use on here for my blog title, but alas... it was for not. The font that I use for my blog title appears to exist nowhere else. It isn't in word, and it isn't on the website that I use to add text to pictures.
Anyways, I'll post again tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
