Nice work Don! I feel it is a tad on the dark side, although I know your stuff tends that way mostly anyways The rendering is very nice. I think the two crits I'd have is that a side on profile view is prone to being a little less dynamic and interesting and the design work on the creature could potentially do with a little more detail and design in places. Nice stuff. Good luck!
Thanks a lot! Yup - I guess I'm not that guy that love bright and fun colors. On the other hand side - dark cover works best with white or high contrasting elements such as title, copy txt or some extra images. Agree with you to a certain point I think having not a high dynamic image for a cover will pay off with all other elements. Peeps could focus on certain points and the eye will be guided around the cover. Sorry - wasn't able to work more on details and heres and theres. hope to find more time for the next challenge
Thanks again for pointing out some weakness of the images and for the useful crit as well. Best
