Tales of the Bayou by catandcrown Tales of the Bayou by catandcrown
Tales of the Bayou.
a story my friend is writing for me and i love the idea of it so much that i decided to do a front cover for it :D

or if nothing else , fan art!

the premise is basically that a man loses the love of his life. a younger man. unable to cope with the grief, the man goes to an old voodoo queen in the local bayou and asks for her help. She tells him to enlist the help of Baron Samedi, one of the Loa kings of the voodoo world.

Which he does.

He summons the Baron and asks him to bring his lover back from the grave.

Which the Baron does.

However, the Baron doesnt enjoy satisfying customers and is known for his tricks. So he brings the man back, but inserts his soul into the body of a newborn beagle puppy, who can only return to human form for a week every year on Mardi Gras.

all the while whilst darker things are stirring in the Bayou.


heheh, i love the idea so much, as you can tell.

all of this is work in progress, including aspects of the story, but im proud of this so far, so i thought id share the progress thus far. :) i only started this today anyways


EDIT

this is the second edit for this piece, and im leaving it for a bit so i can get some more opinions. making it more 'book covery' is difficult, so any thoughts, or references would be very much appreciated :)
