The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

This is an illustration for a competition over on The Fox is Black website.

Bit un-nerving to be able to see all the other entries there already. Have been wanting to do book covers for a while, this an The Outsider are hopefully the start of something bigger. Not submitted yet, think it might need an additional colour, but i need a break from looking at it ...

********** UPDATE **********

So I kinda had just shoved the authors name in there in a font that i had considered using for the title before deciding to do it by hand. Following the original post this was called into question and i decided i had been lazy, i have therefore redone this bit of text and am much happier with it now. Thanks to Mr Velky for the constructive criticism xx

p.s. blogger is driving me crazy i may have to switch, where is the compatibility between picasa and blogger??? they are both made by google for christs sake!!

House of Illustration/Folio Society - The Outsider, Albert Camus // COMPETITION

WAHHHHOOOO!!! Just finished my drawings and entered! To be quite honest I'm rather pleased with how they turned out. They should probably be a bit darker but if I win the other scenes i have picked will be. Wish me luck.
