I like that one too but I think the blurred club is more eye catching.

Re: 2+2 Cover Design Contest for Further Limit Hold 'em

There is some fantastic work in here....

I gotta say that the "puzzle piece" from Unborn is my favorite.

Great job, peeps.

Well hello there,
Best of luck with the new book!

If the book is about models, you don't get a more perfect model than the Vitruvian Man. So here's my cover:



Hi Sandy.

did you happen to try a felt green background as an option? I do love the beige cover though.

tbh ive tried to create a green one yesterday but wasnt satisfied with the results. because of your suggestion i improved it a bit.




anyway, thanks for the feedback guys.

The green one is ok, just remove the white text box, keep further in red and make limit hold'em thicker and in a non black color

Hi Sandy.
very nice indeed!!! almost complete/finished concept.

one thing, the penis doesn't need to be in the illustration... you can blend that part out and you have a winner.

Re: 2+2 Cover Design Contest for Further Limit Hold 'em

some really impressive entries and very creative ideas guys!

only thing i'll say (as a total layman) is that the chips look really out of place at the front of otherwise excellent submissions

I had Vitruvian Man on one of the Analytical No Limit drafts but it was rejected. In fact the reason why the title bar wound it where it did was to cover up dude's junk.

Idea out of nowhere: It would be pretty awesome for an arm to cover it up with his crown/hat lol. Also the chrome 2p2 on the back does your effort no justice at all, sticks out like a roach on a wedding cake.

All kidding aside, here's an actual junkless cover:



My fave so far has to be unborn's jigsaw on the beige background.

Re: 2+2 Cover Design Contest for Further Limit Hold 'em

I'm not a limit player so I don't have many (if any) limit books and I've stayed out of this thread from shortly after it was first created until today. I must say I'm impressed and I just might have to buy the book solely due to the cover. I especially liked the jigsaw.
