– Larger Toto Image
Hello Bob, I have added the necessary elements and slightly increased the cabin. It is better not to increase it more. I will be adding lightning color cover. Regarding lightning instead of "Z". It is better not to change anything else, there is a compositional axis and everything is balanced. Any additions into completed picture, when all balanced and arranged in a certain rhythm usually carries negative.
Greetings Ruslan, Is there a way we can make Toto bigger. The first cover made it clear a dog was in the window. This could be an ant. How about if you push the cabin to the forefront - closer to the reader. The cabin and Tornado would be primary. The wizard can be distinct but further behind - back a bit in the distance. Toto has got to be more prominent. I am paying but we are not quite done with this draft. You are clever enough to make this work. In the original, the Wizard is not smaller, but looks smaller because he is farther back in the tornado. The portion of the tornado above the wizard's head and leading to the cabin - gives one the sense that that part of the storm from the head of the Wizard to the cabin had moved forward to the forefront. Look at the base of the tornado in the original. It is farther in distance behind then the face and the cabin - all in perspective, balance, and realistic. I am including the original...you made it happen here...you can do it. When we get to words save this for the cover...The Wizard Was Odd Trilogy...Toto's Tale.
Ruslan Vigovsky, Hello Bob, I made some more changes in the sketch. It is impossible to increase the cabin anymore, because the sense of space will be lost. I have attached the front cover separately for clarity. In the color everything will look like saturated and detailed. I sent an invoice. Ruslan
Bob Moyer, See! You could do it and it looks great! Please add the cow and boy at the bottom as you did in the orig. If possible, the boy holding the cows tail in one hand and a milk stool in the other hand. I know it will be small. Once we get this version in color, I would like to work out the book cover text - you may have to change from time to time and I know that will not be free, and I would like the main image or front cover image as a separate cut. Excellent job, Ruslan.Can't wait to see the color.
