I know, I know, those of you who follow me on dA/FB/Tumblr/Twitter hhave seen it already. But hey, I like to brag. Especially after months of barely being able to hold a pencil and do anything remotely 'creative'. :P
This is a tentative cover for "Was", or, rather, for its first volume:

So I can't include any important element in those. I don't know if I'll go with Lulu in the end, but I know that this design will allow me some leeway if I decide on a slightly different format in the end.Was

I finish writing a 1-volume beast, and then find myself going all "oh noes". For the moment, if you want to read the new (and, hopefully, improved) version, you can either do so on Wattpad: http://www.wattpad.com/11151858-was
(which is going my teaser-page more than a whole publishing place), or by sending me your e-mail address (for Google Drive, where you'll get more chapters).
