Cloud, these are awesome! Fabulous work! The subtle tone works great, the pictures you've chosen look intense and full of emotion and make me want to read the story badly. The idea of putting them on top of each other... the font... the dog-ears and texture of the paper... what can I say, stunning.
I especially like the lower left-hand corner, somehow. Think I'll just stare at them for a while now...

I'm so glad you like it that much. Thanks for your kind words.

This is absolutely beautiful!

I love the pale blue/grey and the dog-ears, and the pictures you've chosen, and the layout...

I love it!

Edit - *grins* and I always write the same things as Roven at the same time... Must be true then... :-)

It's okay to write the same. You two are my personal fanclub. ;-)
and the dog-ears I'm quite attached to dog-ears. They make all look so well-loved. I'm really glad you like it. :-)

You can add me to your fan club. My laptop screensaver file is full of your artwork.

Thank you again for the wonderful, wonderful illustration. It so perfectly captured the mood and tone of the story (which I'm now about to try and figure out how to post).

It's a funny thing having your work illustrated. You hope the artist's vision will mesh with your own, but until I saw your Palest Ink art I didn't realize how seamless that meld could be. Thank you.

I'd like to thank you, for this outstanding story, and for the beautiful title which appealed to me right away.

You can add me to your fan club. My laptop screensaver file is full of your artwork.
You can add me to your fan club, too. My iPad is full of your novels, novellas and short stories. ;-)

This is really good. I love the almost ethereal look to it and I'm looking forward to reading. Thanks, C. Nice job!
Sep. 19th, 2010 03:33 pm (UTC)
Good to know it works for you. And you will enjoy the story too, I think. :-)

Ooo.. aren't those lovely? So beautifully done. The effect is gorgeous!
Sep. 19th, 2010 06:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'm glad you like what I've done with it. :-)

Wow - that's just gorgeous! I love the fading effects and the layout of the different pictures. It's all really effective. All these gorgeous graphics popping up are making me want to bunk off work and RL crap and sit and read all the stories in a row. Sadly I think that'll have to wait until my week off in October, but a girl can dream! *g*

Thanks, so nice to know you like it. And I know what you mean. Sometimes I'd like to read round the clock. And I want to read fast and slowly at the same time, fast to accomplish as many stories as possible and slowly in order to really enjoy them.

Absolutely beautiful and so slashy too! Makes me want to read that story right away if I only had the time! Thank you so much for sharing!
Sep. 19th, 2010 06:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Finally I succeeded in doing something slashy! I hope you will find time for the story in the end. It's worth it! :-)
Sep. 19th, 2010 06:07 pm (UTC)
Really gorgeous, I like the pictures, the different layers and all the effects in this, they make it look fantastic.
Sep. 19th, 2010 06:41 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. I'm glad you like the effects I put into it. :-)

What you've done here is lovely and I'm really taken with the technique. The way you've taken these images from canon that I recognize so well and made something very, very different out of them is really masterful. The fading almost makes me think of the old carbon paper copies and I can't think of anything more appropriate for the summary of JGL's story.

Thank you. :D
Sep. 19th, 2010 07:08 pm (UTC)
So good to know I chose the right images and technique to fit the story. Thank you for your lovely review! :-)
Sep. 19th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC)
This is really terrific! Such wonderful images and then the muted tones and the pale ink -- they perfectly match the story description..
Sep. 19th, 2010 07:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you, I'm glad you like it. You'll like the story even more, I think! :-)

Add me to your fan club - the artwork is gorgeous. I love what you've done... I could ramble on at length (I'll spare you *g*), but this is yet another piece of yours I'll add to my desktop. Thank you.

Sep. 19th, 2010 07:12 pm (UTC)
Thanks, that makes four, and my day! ;-)
Now that you mention it, I just tried it on my desktop, and it fits fine when it's adjusted to the desktop frame and the background colour is white.
Sep. 19th, 2010 07:42 pm (UTC)
These are really beautiful, the subtle tone and light is beautiful. Really makes me want to read the story. Great work.
Sep. 19th, 2010 08:34 pm (UTC)
Thanks, nice to know it appeals to you. You'll like the story too, I think. :-)

A really wonderful interpretation of 'The Palest Link' - I don't know how you manage it but you've come up with another winner which I really like. Well done!
Sep. 19th, 2010 08:36 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! It just happens, and I'm so glad this works for you. :-)
Sep. 19th, 2010 10:37 pm (UTC)
Ha, as you usually have darker warm powerful colours this was a surprise. The blue looks silver with the patina like oldest photography technique somewhat. Well done illustration to the title, very special, an exciting teaser! Thank you!
Sep. 20th, 2010 10:14 am (UTC)
Thank you. It's just the effect I wanted to achive. :-)
Sep. 20th, 2010 12:45 am (UTC)
Beautiful image :)

Sep. 20th, 2010 03:26 am (UTC)
Gorgeous! And very different.

I'm glad you like it! :-)

Ink on Ink
Beautiful - unbelievably perfect fit with the story, and such moving images. The design is so right for this story!!!! Really blew me away.

Re: Ink on Ink
Wow, thank you, so nice to know you like it that much. :-)

What a brilliant cover, I absolutely adore this :D

It looks like a copy in old (school) days ... where the copies did have such a light blue/lilac colour.

Thanks a lot for your fantastic work!
Sep. 23rd, 2010 09:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! And I think I know which copies you mean, not photocopies, but I don't remember the exact word for it. :-)

After a rather huge delay, I'm finally getting back to reading all the lovely stories and viewing the art.

The artwork you created for this story is stunning and totally suits the mood of the story.

Thank you for your lovely comment. I'm so glad you like the way I did it. :-)
