There is an absolute epic amount of detail put into this, and I'm impressed.

The main thing I noticed was the railing to the left an right of the statue. They don't seem to line up well.


It appears that there is slight lighting a little to the right of the viewer (on the right side of the woman and statue). If that's correct, it's probably man made lighting, and you might consider making the light warmer. If that's not the case, you might consider harsher shadows on the right sides of the woman and the statue.

The only other thing I noticed, I had to really nit pick to find. The center pillar in combo with the far left wall with the clock, seems to have a mild perspective issue. To my eyes it appears that the clock wall should be the end of that arch, but instead it cuts off maybe a 1/4 of the end of the arch.

If the end of the arch isn't supposed to be the wall with the clock, you might consider putting it behind the stair railing and making it a little bit more in shadow.

It has occured to me though, that if an arch ends at a wall, you might not get the full arch you would see between two pillars. So it is totally possible it is by design.

As for the impact of the drawing, it didn't make me HAVE TO HAVE this book. I was interested, it looked like it had possibility for something I would read, but it didn't instantly end up in my hypothetical shopping cart. I would have had to read the flaps before deciding.

If I came off as rather critical, I'd like to sat that it's a beautiful piece with exquisite detail.

Vaya... creo que esta vez sí que tengo que ponerte alguna "pega"... vamos por partes.

La sombra de la barandilla no encaja. La luz proviene de la luna, asi que las sombras de los postes de la balaustrada deberían converger hacia la fuente de luz. Además, falta la sombra de la columna central y de la propia protagonista. Si los postes tienen una sombra tan bien definida como la que les has puesto, el resto de los elementos también deberían tenerlo.

Los detalles arquitectónicos tampoco encajan demasiado bien. Es posible que la estatua interrumpa la barandilla de subida (creo que esa era tu intención, pues creo que quisiste poner un recodo) pero entonces debería haber un descansillo en la escalera a esa altura.

La curvatura de los arcos que descansan sobre la columna central quedan extrañamente asimétricos incluso para tratarse de una arcada que está alineada con la escalera de subida. Además, da la falsa impresión de que la parte del arco que sube por la derecha de la columna central y la que descansa en la parte derecha de la imagen forman parte de un único arco de curvatura un tanto escorzada.

Las escaleras de subida no parecen paralelas a la balconada, sino que parece que terminan "entrando" en el bloque del edificio bajo que está bajo los pies de la protagonista.

La estatua está a contraluz respecto de la luna y sin embargo se ve como iluminada desde arriba. El pedestal, en cambio, sí tiene una orientación más correcta de la sombra, aunque en todo caso la iluminación esperada sería como la de la columna central.

El resto de detalles ya sí son los acostumbrados en tu estilo. Y hay que decirlo, no hay chica que se te resista.

Con mucho cariño y mucho ánimo para que mejores en esos aspectos que se te "resisten".

Hola Ricardo,
Gracias por tu aportación. En muchas cosas tienes razón pero se trata de 3 trabajos en uno. Cada parte del libro tiene que tener un sentido en el conjunto pero también individualmente. Por ejemplo, la contraportada. Si no al verla, quedaría sosa o no se como. He tenido que tomarme ciertas licencias. Creo que me explico. De todas formas es una fantasía.
La escalera si, pasa por debajo de la tarima donde está la modelo, por ejemplo.

Gracias y tomo nota :hug: sss

Caramba, una vez que se ve la composición de la cubierta todo cobra mucho más sentido. En efecto, es una composición "por partes", no es una unidad.

Mis más sinceras disculpas por haber sido tan duro en mi primera valoración. Ya me parecía a mí raro que la arquitectura te hubiera quedado tan a lo M.C.Escher (es decir: imposible), cuando en el resto de tus trabajos que yo he tenido ocasión de ver no pierdes la coherencia espacial.

Y visto el propósito de la ilustración, se disculpan también las licencias con la iluminación y las sombras.

Aunque suene a disculpa tonta, te diré que mi feroz crítica fue hecha en base a ver sólo la ilustración del fondo, sin ningún detalle más de la cubierta, y por eso no tuve ninguna pista visual sobre lo que en realidad era. Por cierto, no sé exactamente porqué vi en esa ocasión sólo el fondo. ¿Acaso vi una versión incompleta? ¿O el navegador me jugó alguna mala pasada? En fin, de haber visto el resultado final completo, ten por seguro que no habría hecho los comentarios que hice, porque ahora me parece evidente que no los merecía.

En todo caso, muchas gracias por tus amables palabras de respuesta. La próxima vez me aseguraré bien de lo que veo antes de abrir el pico.
