-It’s not all the time that I like a pop-rock album; I’m an EDM and House music kind of guy. But I really really love this album. I considered it my favorite pop-punk/pop-rock album, next to All Time Low’s Don’t Panic album. I really love their sound, the lyrics and their voices. I like that they all get to sing. The songs are really catchy and sure to take you out of your seat and send you some good vibes. This album is legendary. I’ve been playing this all week!

-One of my favorite books ever! One of the most unforgettable and chilling twists I’ve ever read. The reason behind all of it was genius! I love the writing, too, it was beautiful.
Two of legendary horror film figures in their own shows! How awesome is that?! Who’s your favorite?
Yay! My agents are complete! #SkyeWard #DontArgue
These are the earlier versions of my Dualed cover. What I would always do is rest my eyes for a few hours and look at it again with fresh eyes and I would always find that something’s wrong and I would have to change it again and I usually repeat this cycle until I decided that it’s enough. I made five versions, decided there’s something wrong about them, and changed them again until I finally decided a better version (the solo version).

-I started this at night and finished it at 12 in the morning, the edited it for the last time at 8 in the night. Mostly, it’s the experimenting and coloring that took all my hours. In the cover is an eye and West’s assignment number encoded on the pupil. Assignment numbers also spread across the whole cover. I know it said “black spiral of tiny numbers” in the book but I don’t think the number would be seen against the pupil’s color so I made it white with a dramatic blue glow. There’s also the Alts and behind them is a silhouette of a DNA strand symbolizing the genetic engineering or creation of Alts and also Level 3. I also added flares just because I love them (shhh… this is a secret but flares also make empty spaces look unbelievably awesome. heehee hee!). I hope you like my spin to the Dualed book cover. *This is fan-made.
-Here’s a closer look to the Dualed fan-art I made. If you are also a beginning designer, you could probably get some ideas here on how to create a similar or inspired artwork. It all started with an eye, and then I added several clouds behind it—exactly 4 different cloud textures—and blurred them all (Gaussian-40px). Then I added the assignment numbers by creating an ellipse path and adding typing on it; my fingers really hurt from randomly typing a thousand numbers. After the numbers, I added the girl. I looked for a model on Google Images and altered her hair and figure a bit and filled her with black. Then, I put the DNA strand silhouette behind her. After that, I added the black and white splatters. Lastly, I added fake eyelashes by using the “Dune Grass” brush. The rest, it’s up to you to imagine how to make a similar effect.
