Cover artwork for A Brush with Magic by sonialeong Cover artwork for A Brush with Magic by sonialeong
I can't believe I've already finished this (O.O);; that's what happens when I'm really into something, I can't stop working on it! I've designed the full cover layout already, and this is the image to go on the front.

I bet some of you have been wondering what Rua's colour scheme had been for a while! But yeah, she's just awesome, lots of reds and browns and golds :3

Silas, you should have seen before:

I actually pencilled and inked this line art about a year ago! But they came out very nicely, so I went ahead and coloured them. I'm quite happy with how they came out ^^

By the way, the rainbow threads in the background are totally intentional and part of the story - it's how magic is used in this world, elemental threads of it woven in different colours :3

Very vibrant colors. Colors are great visual elements that shares allot in expressions.
The color blue is often associated with something deep, cool, calm and collective, while the color red is often associated with something
hot, fiery, passionate, and attractive. Personally I always had a thing for kitsunes and cat girls generally speaking and this one looks like an interesting story I'd
love to read into. The background has that magical feel that really engages my imagination. The waterfall effects with the vibrant colors adds a sense
of sophistication that really foretells a deep story. The elf being the practitioner of magic. The fox girl, strikes me as a mercenary/bounty Hunter somehow. Perhaps from her
light clothing and her brash expression, she's a go getter type character. The elf is more reserved perhaps even brilliant as a tactician. It's a great contrast of characters in which opposites do attract.

Well that concludes my interpretation. Hope you enjoyed the read. Interpretation is a cool gift I discovered at the time when I first joined DA and in mid commentary. Since then,
I combined my gift with my writing skills to provide creative feedbacks. It's a fun way that enables me to reach out and connect with fellow artist on a deeper level. Epic art work once again. I would love to see this comic when it comes out.  :)

I'm loving Rue's colour scheme, she looks so pretty and cool, I adore her hair the most :la:
Great cover too :D

Her hair is awesome, I love the gold streaks in them. I wanted the cover image to be totally arresting! The rest of the cover is a bit more understated and classy looking, so the image really pops out :D I'll post up the full cover design at some point ^^

WHOA! You finished that fast! :D The colours are stunning! Bright and fun and gaudy but not over-powering. Astonishing use of tone and I love the blueish tint to the shadows on silas. Really love it.
