THE PROPHECY OF TARA by isikol THE PROPHECY OF TARA by isikol
This is an artwork for R.L. KISER's new book over at Amazon...

This is the original artwork i made for the client but unfortunately they changed the cover using only the main character....

the final cover and the book can be found here
[link]

you should check this book ;)

p.s i would be very interested on your opinion about the 2 covers... thanks!

Very sexy and stylish outfit here. I love the chain belts to accent her leather strapping and outfit. I Love her facial work and the skin toning is always gorgeous. She appears to have an intense stare like she spots something in the shrubs. Nice bunny detail.

Hands down, this is my favourite version between the two covers. IMO, a bookcover is supposed to
say "pick me up and read me", and I don't get that feeling from the other cover. This cover, not only is
it nicer looking and more interesting, that bunny in the background makes me want to pick up the book,
if only to find out why the bunny is there! ;) (And why it is the size of a dog! :giggle:)

What a shame, what he did to your cover :omg:
I'm not sure why the rabbit needs to be so bit, but maybe it has it's reasons. Except of this, your coverversion is thousand times better than the used one.

Your cover is very nice. I'm not really convinced by the rabbit but I assume it has a reason to be here. I do know how difficult it is to illustrate someone else writen (i made some cover and illustration for a shortstory e-book) so you made a really good job on this.

BUT that he did with your illustration is just a pity :( The composition, fonts,... :thumbsdown:

How someone cando that ?

Gonna hop on the bandwagon here and say that your version is much better. What they did shows they don't understand art in the slightest. What further proves that is the fact that they didn't even try to blend her into the image. They obviously knew enough about Photoshop to extract her from the original piece and paste her onto a generic scenic background, but it never occurred to them that they might need to adjust the saturation, brightness, and contrast to blend it all together?

Don't know the purpose of the rabbit but it's a very good cover to a novel. And the final is enough to have anyone jaw hit the desk. and for eyes to go O.O.
"Don't judge a book by it's cover" they say... Well, in this case I will. Horrible.

Your version is obviously much better than what they used, but it doesn't seem like you left them a good place to put the book title and author's name in this version. No matter how great the artwork may be, those elements are more important to the author, a publisher, and to most consumers too.
Also, the depth of field around the rabbit looks off. Kinda seems like he hopped into the scene from another book cover. :)
Bummer that your signature got removed from the art along with those great ruins.

I don't get the bunny, but that's because I haven't read the book.

Yeah I'm not sure bout the bunny unless that was something they had asked for, but that cover they went with is meh at best, it's only saving grace the character you made. :shakefist: Why must people do that kinda stuff?!

:( Yours is better. Did you sell the copyright when you did the cover? Because they can't just go hacking apart your work like that unless they bought exclusive rights to have the copyright of it.
