yeah a bit too close to the book, but awesome illustration!


Awesome! Nice job!


this style is sooo cool


this is very good, i hope it gets printed.... good luck! $5


a bit too close to be a tribute imo


i like it also, but it is VERY close and also for your design i don't think that the red "edge!" is necessary.

Thanks ph03n1x (and others who like the design)! I thought the style was different enough in itself, and I changed a number of elements on top of that, that it would easily be interpreted as more of a tribute than a knockoff. Maybe I was wrong? I wanted it to be similar enough that the reference would be noticeable but different enough to stand on it's own.

At any rate I really appreciate the positive feedback, it's sincerely appreciated.

I really love the design (I gave it a 5). I just know that copyright comes up a lot here, so I was curious to know what other people thought. I agree with Descendras that it would work just as well without the red "edge" and would help separate it from the original more.

I do wonder about the dog's position though. The more I look at him, the more he seems to be defying gravity. Anyway... great job!

There's a city and there's a moon and it's night, and that's just about the only things different from the original drawing to me. Not enough for a homage, but too little to call it a ripoff. You've got talent, so keep trying.

the focus is still exactly the same with the positioning of the dog and the two kids. if i made that book cover i would consider this a rip off
the design is sweet tho
