Just worked up the preliminary artwork for Astronomical.  Let me know what you think!

  1. Saw your request for comments! I like the 3D/out of focus thing, but I recommend keeping only one strong symbol on the cover instead of three. Something about it feels a bit too busy. I think it may be because the title is in that 3D effect, making the title itself take up more visual space than it would if it were smooth.

  2. Hey Aric,

    I had my fiance look and see if he thought the same thing as me. He said, “Am I supposed to wear 3-D glasses?” Which is pretty much the number one thing that bugs me. It’s hard to take in the rest of the cover because my eyes keep straying back to the title (and the target), trying to see clearly and just getting a headache. 😦

  3. Yeah, I’m getting that a lot. It will probably stay with the reticle, but the title work may need to change.
