illustration book cover - lord of the flies

i am so sick of book covers. the finals in all my art classes were some form of book cover. for this one i did a book cover for lord of the flies by william golding. it is one of my favorite books so i thought it would be fun. my idea involves the ever popular glasses. in one lense i put a picture of the civilized boys and in the other i put a picture of them as savages because that is how the book progresses for them. i started with some line work and then put watercolor over it. i think it was pretty effective. i felt a bit more confident working on this one for some reason and it payed off a bit. i feel like it is one of my best illustrations of the year.
