The Path of the Black Shroud

The obligatory reaper photo-manipulation

Back to photo-manipulating(or learning to combine photos) I go in the rare moments of spare time allocated to me. There's seriously not enough time in the day! Halloween is coming around the corner. Which means, it's fair game to start putting up all the spooky pictures.

The picture below is an artwork I created using a tutorial I found which featured a very fire happy grim reaper. I disliked the huge amount of neon beams the original tutorial used. Instead, I only used the free stock fire images to give the look of a flaming scythe.

All created from free stock images
If you click on the picture you can see it in a bigger view. I didn't upload the original as it was far too large at 4500 height by 3000 width(more or less). I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of using reapers. They creep me out but then I had to overcome that fear by completing the tutorial. Not a bad attempt. It could definitely be better but for a novice, it's a pretty cool picture.

In my next entry I'll share my latest book covers. One is for a fairy tale, the second is a paranormal book cover, and the third is for a fantasy adventure.

Fantasy & Magic Love Story

Chronicles of Zaloria is a novel series based on a Fantasy & Magic love story with Humanoid Wolves. The Varul society is based on a warrior's life with a sole king that rules over the entire realm. A mystical land where mortals are not allowed to set foot. This story spans the lives of the royal family with themes of life & death, friendship & love, and learning to accept that it's okay to be yourself.


Meet Acalia Itzchel. A young woman that seeks to find her place among her own clansmen. Despite her royal title of  'princess' she is seemingly blessed(or in her POV - cursed) with the appearance of a she-wolf. In Zaloria, the males appear like humanoid wolves while all the female Varul very much seem like humans. However, Acalia has wolf ears, tail, claws and fangs like the male warriors.

There's only one other that shares similar attributes as her and that's Acalia's grandmother. A former legendary heroine that is ostracized by all the clans.
