EDIT: This is not exactly how I want it to turn out, I will probably continue messing with this later. This was actually my initial idea/intention for the cover, this metaphorical blindfold. I just couldn't summon the guts to splatter Alter's face with ink after I had worked so hard, even though the eye actually ended up looking a bit wonky.
Then I remembered- I can still do this, digitally. The symbolism isn't as powerful here as I think it would be if I legitimately went crazy with inks and acrylics and completely vandalized this painting. I still might do so, I just really need to get over my nerves first... I also feel like the new splatters take a bit away from the corner ink splatter, which is actually extremely important, at least to me.
Any who, bottom line, this is my idea, I think I want it to happen, however I'm not sure it I am/will ever be ready to do it to the real painting. Please, tell me what you think! Your guys' input really means a lot to me! At this point, there is still going back.
Sorry for the multiple uploads, everyone! Finally finished the typography, although it's not perfect. I have school work piling up to my neck, so please bear with me here! C:Page one: [link]
