Swill Six Cover Progresses

So, what's going on now? I've got a solid composition based on photographs, a scanned chrysalis, and a scanned inkblot. I'm taking each element -- each 'object' that's basically one color -- and rendering it using three flat tones, light, shadow, and middle tone.

Once this has been done, each color will be brought into Illustrator and autotraced. The end result will be simpler, more elegant, and more 'printerly' than this. It will also be reproducible at any given size. Assuming I don't wind up breaking Illustrator with my ridiculous demands. I've done it before.

The end goal is something that's further away from collage/montage and closer to a 'real' print. We shall see...
