The author originally wanted me to make a cover for a zombie novel, but she felt the concept of this cover was better suited for her upcoming paranormal mystery. So the zombie I originally created was scrapped and turned into a ghost. This piece is completely photomanipulated. Using some effects, I gave the model a wispy, ethereal look and used my own photography that I manipulated for the background. Unfortunately, I don’t think it was ever used for the book, but I really like the color palette. 2013.
