Tempest of the Soul cover 1 by MeredithDillman Tempest of the Soul cover 1 by MeredithDillman
size: 8x10
medium: ink, watercolor

Well, hopefully there will only be 1 version :) I'm still not sure whether I like it. It will be cropped a lot for the actual book cover because I added a lot more to the sides than I needed to. We will see if I have time to do anything else (not likely though). I have to finish adding text to all my pages first.

Gorgeous work! The dark colors lend a haunting feel to the overall image--almost moreso than the melancholic character in the foreground :wow:

your watercolors really want me to start experimenting- I would like to see a tutorial of your technik- I always have issues with control and flow of the water- Keep up the awesome work.

Here's one but it's not very detailed. [link]

As far as water I tend to put down paint and then let it dry before putting on more. If I want to blend something I clean off the brush and blend the edges with clean water. I always test on paper scraps to make sure I don't have too much water or the right color. Paper towels for soaking up extra water in your brush.

I redrew one entire chapter and am rescanning and lettering everything. I may change the wording here and there, but otherwise it's the same.
