Nice work on the creature, I can see this creature working with overlaid text and small images that usually
appear in front of these magazine. Keep it up!
Best of luck. :)

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.

No you're absolutely right, this would work very well as a cover piece for all the things you said. I was thinking purely in design terms as a standalone piece but that's not the brief ;) Best of luck!
