This is my latest design for Belle Books [link] and I'm quite chuffed by the lighting!

That is so cool! I'd love to consider using it for a cover for one of my stories if I decide to post it :) with your permission of course and I doubt I'll change anything at all except add in a title ^_^ only with your permission! I'd really love to use it because it captures the essence of the story I'm working on and it's completely non-commercial use before it's just amateur story-writing. I'd just really like a good cover for my story is all and post the cover on deviant and credit it all to you as well.

Hope you'll consider me :)

Thanks for asking, but I'm afraid I can't give you permission to do that, since this was commissioned for another book cover, and the company holds the primary copyright, even though you're not drawing a profit from your story. :worry: HOWEVER, if you see something else in my gallery that is obviously just my own personal work and not commissioned by another person/company, you can let me know and I'll give you the okay to use it! I hope you understand...

the lighting really adds a lot and the colours really glow. Gorgeous, love the fall of her hair as well. Is this the piece you had to paint with cmyk?

No, it was a different one. This one, I painted in RGB and tried to convert after finished, and it SUCKED. The publisher managed to do a better conversion. I suspect it had something to do with my antiquated PS7, doing a piss-poor job. Boy, I need to update. What version of PS are you using?

I'm running cs5, but I think any of the cs versions from 3 onward are pretty good.
I upgraded from Elements, so cs5 seemed like some sort of miracle to me, lol.
I've never tried converting to CMYK.
