    Well, this is weird! I have something ready to post and it's not the very last day of the challenge, yet?? What am I thinking??

    Well, I'm thinking the unthinkable, obviously! :D

    Thanks! This cover is getting a lot more response - and all positive - than I expected ;).

    :lol: 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! :techman:

    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.
