Beyond the Ocean's Edge

Completed Cover

Today I finished the cover for Sailing Dangerous Waters: Another Stone Island Sea Story.  I ended up working on it a bit during the week and then again today.  I have a few more intermediate pics, so I'll put up one of those and then the final result.  The in-progress is simply a snap with the phone camera.  The completed one is after being scanned in, and is what will actually be used for the cover image.

Island Expedition starting to take shape.

The finished result.  As usual with such endeavors, the outcome is not exactly what I had envisioned.  I actually like this, the scanned version a little better than the original.  It's lightened up some and the ships (and schooner) are a bit more visible.
