Okay, I finally saw this somewhere online so I guess it's okay to post it here.
This cover features a character that can manifest Japanese Folklore.
Things sorta changed for me on this one. I decided that I'm going to try and be less literal with covers and have more fun with design elements, etc. It's probably my best work to date, IMO.
Hopefully, I'll hate it sometime soon. I already see some major flaws and things I could of done better. I guess that's a good thing!
UPDATE: Oddly enough, this cover made iO9.com's Covers of the Decade list. Check it out: [link]
