Here is some art I created back in high school called “Midnight Prowler.” (If it looks a little messed up, it’s because this is a scan of an old photograph. The original artwork is too big to put in my scanner). I’m not entirely sure, but I think the medium is charcoal pencil (although it could be graphite). I thought this one was appropriate for Halloween and so decided to share it. Enjoy!
I would like some feedback as to what viewers think about my book trailer for Transmogrified. Here are some questions you can answer to help me improve my marketing strategy in the future. Please write your answers in the comments section here on this blog, or on the same post shared on my Facebook page (by following this URL): Transmogrified Book Trailer
1. Does this book trailer look professional? Why or why not?
2. Did the video capture your interest? Why or why not?
3. Are the character degins appealing? Why or why not?
4. How did you feel when you watched this video?
5. What could I do to improve the “Transmogrified” book trailer and make it more appealing to a science fiction reader (or even to capture the interest of people who are not normally drawn to science fiction)?
Feel free to write any other comments or suggestions regarding this book trailer.
I have not posted much lately because I’ve been working on polishing up my art skills and I’ve also been dealing with a lot of personal things (depression, chronic illness, etc.). Everything has been pretty overwhelming lately. So here’s a random, varied selection of some of my older artwork for you to enjoy . . .
I wasn’t satisfied with the video I made where I colored Eugene with colored pencils, so I made a new one where I paint the same character in a different style with watercolors. This one is more realistic and less cartoony than the first one.
I had a lot of trouble making the video, including having to reinstall the software I was using to record it after it got corrupted!
Darn you, Eugene! Not only are you a troublemaker for Dr. M, but you’re also a troublemaker for me! (Heh, heh.)
