Well, I'm thinking the unthinkable, obviously!

Re: July Art Challenge - Ptrope

That's awesome! I love the command beret - makes perfect sense on a being with no arms or legs. I could see a Horta wearing something like that as well. Would recommend that you put Captain's rank braid on the beret next to the insignia.

Loving the "used" look of the book cover too. Well done!

How do you get the creases and dog ears on the book?

The spine crease is from a scan I took of an actual paperback cover. The dogear and general condition of the cover is from a scan of a distressed piece of cover stock that I found as a stock image online, and I play with the layer blending to get the final effect.
