ATR: Chapter 1 cover - coloured

Chapter 1 cover of the next short graphic novel I'm trying to work on. Spring is the theme for chapter 1, so it's spring and also the sunrise. Colours were going to be in watercolours and then I realized the paper was bad (and I wasn't skilled enough), so I made another print of the lineart and coloured it in good old colour pencils. Some GIMP correction in terms of the colour layers (multiply) of the sunset gradient colours. Exciting stuff.

Transparent backgrounds are still cool, right?

Oooh, I hope to see it soon. The spring mood looks really nice. I enjoy the transparent background together with the obviously traditional art. It looks especially cool :) .

Thanks! I also like the transparent background; however, I hope to one day make prints of this story so the hard-copy probably won't have the transparency Sweating a little...  (OR COULD IT???). Anyhow, it's fun.

Well... I guess it'd be expensive, and you'd still have to think about some kind of background for the image in the actual "fist page" of the thing, but it'd doubtlessly be a cool looking book, I guess ;D !
