Why Mister Poe, What A Black Cat You Have

Part 1 of a 3-part diptych illustrating Poe's "The Black Cat." Lots of planning involved in this project. Each is vertical 11"x18" and this first piece is completely digital. Resolution 300, so the psd is like...127 megabytes. Saving is a BITCH, but it's really close to done... I just need to figure out if i'm going to put some text or a pattern at the bottom of the frame. Any suggestions?

Work In Progress!

So, the aforementioned work in progress: The assignment is to do a 45 cover and back, the back which I will do in class. Apparently, a 45 is the old name for a single released on its own mini vinyl or something like that, but someone told me the cover size was 7x7". So yeah, mini I guess? Anyways, the song is Mark Farina's "Dream Machine." Go crazy.
