That is a book I would read just for how ridiculous the cover looks.

Wow, I somehow get the idea that the letters, "WWKRD", are important. Not like I have anything to fuel that suspicion besides the fact that they are the only five letters in a massive interesting compilation of gluey-looking tentacles, a tattooed girl on a laptop, a nerd desperately trying to summon icebolts, a long-haired Weasley dangerously wielding a katana, a gruff looking cop character that's twelve times the size of everybody but the Weasley, and a city that is falling apart.

In other words, I really like the order in which the various pieces of this bookcover have been placed. The placing easily leads the eye around in an arcing crescent to the huge crack in the street, and the variety of characters makes me very interesting in reading this book, very attention grabbing.

great perspective and interesting use of angle, such drama in a relatively simple picture. But it speaks of hours of work to achieve the effect.

I haven't used gesso since 2008 or so. Been a while. I was always a bit too... generous with it. Now that I think back on the amount of paintings I ruined. haha.
That's why I mainly stick to acrylics now. :P

I love the composition, full of fantastic lines and angles (I especially love the organic tentacles on the cracked stone/blacktop). The way our main man is holding his gun suggests to me than he was putting it away in a holster when perhaps he heard a threat coming since he's holding it kind of loosely. Makes me wonder what happens next!

The church in background reminds me of the Dresden Frauenkirche. D:
That's just awesome on so many levels. The composition is so nice and I really like the used colours and technique.
