WOW! I know nothing of your book unfortunately, but just from seeing that I'd buy the book or at least pick it up to have a better look if I was in a bookstore.

What is the book about anyway? Do you have an authors blog or anything with info on the book?

Thanks, I got a really good artist. Really appreciate his work. It's a horror novel. Not trying to advertise here, but there is a description on it here- http://www.lulu.com/content/5569085

His left boot seems odd, though. Like, everything else in the image feels like it has three dimensions, except the boot which feels like it's only got two.

It's supposed to be in shadow, so it's less detailed. An all too common comic book trick. I don't mind it though, I think it looks good.

Well highlighted in this case, since it's in the light. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I'm not sure, fog perhaps? But I think my artist did an awesome job as it is, so I'm not going to ask him to change it.
