"CLUES" -Final Cover- by kyla79 "CLUES" -Final Cover- by kyla79
Here it is, the (final?) cover of my comic book "Clues"!
Now, I just hope my publishers, and you guys (maybe future readers? ;) ) are happy with it!

I fixed a lot of things (or at least tried to) according to all your wonderful comments! I couldn't thank you enough for pointing out what was wrong with pic, and therefore help me try to fix this beast!

So, this took me 13 hours to color (in a row... I didn't stop) and around 170 layers (one for each little detail... sounds probably ridiculous, but at least, if I have to change a color anywhere, it's much easier!)

I really do hope you enjoy this! Never have I worked this much on a picture! phew!

Oh, and I'm making a print out of this if you want! :D

170 calques ! O.O Quel travail !
Cette couverture est vraiment très aboutie, et a bien évolué depuis le premier jet, c'est très intéressant à observer. Le mouvement, les différentes perspectives et tous les détails sont un plaisir pour les yeux. Autant d'heures de travail n'auront pas été vaines et donnent un sacré beau résultat.

Hey there! Karmi-Sempai here!

It's really such a shame that Clues won't be out in English... Still, there's no use denying that it looks so interesting and tempting to buy all thanks to this cover. I mean, your perspective work is awesome, the character designs are well done, and the coloring is rather simple but it produces an old London-ish atmosphere. I also like the combination of traditional shading and cel-shading. Do you ink your works traditionally and color digitally?

He seems to have such a severe personality... I think poor Emily will have some encounters with him.

This piece goes to my fav's. Thanks for sharing!
