More cover art critiques!

How to rock a limited color palette! This is gorgeous. The image interacts with the strong font. The dripping blood is very evocative of Dark Fantasy. There’s a hint of fairy tale, with the crystal rose. I love the texture details behind the image, though I kind of lose what it’s supposed to be behind the lower half of the image. I might have cut down on the number of ‘tendrils’ weaving over the words by one or two (the S seems excessively ‘entwined’). But it’s a stunning image, regardless!





Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
