Debut of the Lightning Fish



A giant fish in sparkling ocean with the words Sending Kisses against the moon
Oh lightning fish in the deep blue sea, how glittery are thee!
I'm not sure what type of caffeine concoction I was drinking the day I put this photomanip together but it was certainly potent. It started off from following a tutorial to outright disregarding the tutorial (because the creator never seems to actually teach how to create an effect).



So I went wild and threw every sparkle and brush overlay effect I could onto the photo. The "sending kisses" text in the upper left-hand corner seems both out of place yet oddly satisfying.

Gold Fish, Ocean, Moon and Sky set against the night


Since I create my own book covers I like to practice some form of art every day to keep up. I'm mostly self-taught (and I'm sure it shows a ton) but there's just something about making art that brings a smile to my often weary days.

In this case, it's a fishie that got to experience my quirky taste. There's no rhyme or reason to making it and here's the thing: it doesn't need a reason.

Have fun!

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.
