So, for my last English assignment this year we had to create a single frame text (known to normal people as a picture) and then discuss the different conventions we used to make it effective and bla bla bla, other unimportant things.
I was using Torchwood novel covers to make it look like I was doing work in class, when I realised I should make one. So, here is Kate's dream Torchwood novel cover... conveniently the non-existant novel it happens to be a cover for was written by me.

Sort-of spoilers for Exit Wounds!

Most Doctor Who fans will recognise the Dalek spaceships and realise that would usually indicate END OF ZE WORLD, however Mr English Teacher does not watch Doctor Who, so they are just "spaceships", and Torchwood/Captain John will easily save the day and live happily ever after.

What do you think? It was my first attempt at Photoshop, so I'm quite proud of it.

Oh thats wonderful! I really, really like that. The castle seems to fit Capt Johns projected persona perfectly.

Thanks! I'm greatly in need of some Torchwood icons :D

Thanks, I thought it seemed very him! :)
Nov. 16th, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
Well made! I would certainly read that.
Nov. 16th, 2008 10:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks :)

It's awesome - I'd read it!

Srsly if you posted a "OMG - NEW NOVEL COVER'S LEAKED!" people would probably not only believe you but head to amazon.co.uk and try and preorder it (I would totes buy it!) :)

Thankyou darling! *huggles*

That's really good, I can't believe you've never used Photoshop before! I love the colours.

It's weird thinking of how it would look to a non DW fan: A guy in a Napoleonic Jacket, with a Samurai sword, in front of a castle, with spaceships, two modern people and one in a world war two coat. I guess even a non fan might grasp that time travel is involved!

Definitely took me a while to get the hang of it, but I think it was worth it!

I'm glad you said that, because I said that in my report. Hope the teacher agrees with me!
Nov. 16th, 2008 06:46 pm (UTC)
Agreed, I'd order this!

Well done!
Nov. 16th, 2008 10:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks :)

Wow that's really good! Well done!

Did you like using Photoshop? Or do you prefer that other one lol..can't remember the name. "Single Frame Text Editor"?
Nov. 16th, 2008 10:21 pm (UTC)
Haha I was showing Mum and Dad how people like my novel cover, and Dad goes "Is that Donald O'Connor down there? What's he doing there?"
Nov. 16th, 2008 10:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, and... Photoshop messed with my head at first, I still haven't totally got the hang of it, PhotoFiltre was easier lol.

hahah he does look rather out of place here doesn't he? I really need some icons that AREN'T Donald!! So does your dad like him?

And I can't understand why I'm not getting your emailsss :( They don't even go into junk mail or anything. I think I really should get a new email address.. But I'm still attached to my old one.. All this time I thought you hated me :(

I dunno if he likes him, he mentioned Francis the Talking Mule and said how he was a brilliant dancer like Fred Astaire or something. Followed by something along the lines of "He was probably gay too but no one knew back then!" :P

Yeahh I never get a "message failed" kinda thing either! I'm thinking of getting a new one, maybe the one I use for lj comment notifications because it already gets those.
Nov. 17th, 2008 08:33 am (UTC)
He was wayyy better than Fred Astaire yet he is hardly recognised :(


Hmm maybe you could try sending me one from that email and see if it works then.
Nov. 17th, 2008 10:50 am (UTC)
I'd order it just for the cover - beautiful!
Nov. 17th, 2008 11:38 am (UTC)
Thankyou! :)
Nov. 17th, 2008 11:43 am (UTC)
That's fantastic!
I'm really curious how your teacher will react to this. I'm trying to imagine how it looks for someone outside fandom, but I can't =)

Btw - it's really your first time with PS? Wow, I wish my first attempts were that good =)
Nov. 18th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
Thanks :)
Yeah, it's hard to imagine how it would look to someone else. Hopefully it still communicates all the right messages and everything that I talked about in my report! Like the red symbolising danger, and stuff like that.

And thanks again :) It took twice as long as I thought it would, because I had to find the right button to do everything, but I got there in the end!
Nov. 24th, 2008 12:24 am (UTC)
Oh, now that's awesome. I seriously would love that book.
Nov. 24th, 2008 12:30 am (UTC)
Thanks :)

This is awesome.

By the way, we seem to have quite a few interests (and a friend) in common...friends?
Jun. 8th, 2009 09:31 am (UTC)
And I would love to be friends :)
