The second Drunkduck anthology is nearing completion, while there's still work to be done it's definitely very close.


With that in mind it's time for you to vote on the cover design.

A. Andrea Helifinger


B. Genejoke


C. Plymayer


D, Jason Moon


E. Banes


F. Banes 2


G. Emma Xross


H. Plymayer 2



A couple of these have slight variations which I haven't included here, such as the first Banes design and Emm Xross's, these can be found in the following thread.

https://www.theduckwebcomics.com/forum/topic/179106/?page=6

if you have any thoughts on which variation to use feel free to express them with your vote.

Voting will remain open throughout April.

This is a VERY tough call - there are wonderful submissions here. I've had to think about it for a few days.

Gonna go with D by Jason Moon.

D, Jason Moon

All the entries are very fascinating but this one really stands out and fits the dreams theme perfectly.

I vote C. Love that minimalistic mysticism about it.

Love the range on offer here. Well done, everyone.
I'm picking C. Simple and elegant.

Agreed that this is all great work and everyone who contributed should be proud.

Both A and G read to me like accessible covers that get their point across. A has a literal point that extends into chaotic infinity (there is likely more to the composition that I do not understand). But G is so comfortable, familiar, and well-rendered that I can't help but vote for it.

So G, please.

Some feedback for the rest:

B - Genejoke, you nailed the tone. I feel like you were trying to render creativity and absurdity and I think you hit that just right. Your choice of which details to include and how to present them was sage!

C - There's a lot you can take/project/imagine in the smoke, here, and the abstract nature and non-defined shapes fit in well with the theme.

D - Jason, your illustration here ranges from childhood wonder to nightmarish! Your use of color is striking and powerful, and your composition is very clear. I also hope that you are getting enough rest.

E - The eye is your strongest rendering for this composition, and the upside-down tree is very interesting. You've got an almost Dali-like feel here, mixed with something more sinister… cool!

F - The feeling of dreams/dreaming/creativity is very clear. I also love her expression.

H - Love the mixture of mediums, here (not to mention that it's a digital file on a website)! I also love how it looks like she is casting a shadow on the cement (it's the shadows from the leaves above, right?). Very cool. She looks appropriately-placed in the photo's composition.

Hopefully it won't be too much longer. Waiting on a story which I think will be an excellent addition, aside from that I just need to finalise the order and finish putting it together the final product.
