Boo, there isn't an actual category for book dust jackets

:bulletred:here's the "book" version: [link]

:bulletred: An actual VoH cover : [link]


edit- changed a few things that were bugging me

This was the most fun homework assignment ever... we were told to illustrate a cover/dust jacket for our favorite book or series (and anything goes) so I could absolutely not resist using my favorite comic book for the assignment.

I really should have used illustrator for this but i only have it on the PC so faking that "Vector" look in photoshop kind of made me hate the decision to go with a graphic flat style.

Anyway, enough rambling, Oboe is putting on a disco LIGHT SHOW!

Aah the comic gets very dark and very epic later on. It starts very very light hearted. I like both sides of it (the comedy and the drama both) but I tend to draw more of the drama. The image I drew is honestly more visually and tonally in line with the anime (which is ironic since I dislike the anime so much ^^; )but the anime is super super super dark and very serious.

the flautist of hameln? you mean pied piper? that's the legend this story was based off of.

This is absolutely amazing, and I am supremely jealous of your skills. I wish I'd had this assignment for my own homework at somepoint!
