It seems that I've reached the bandwidth of Photobucket, I'll have to change to another host, also I've been doing a much better version of the book, just like the Bill Cipher one, I'll replace them one by one sooner or later. As of now I've replaced 2 of them, both look better than their previous version they're:
-Bill Cipher ( more detailed blood)
Haha. Nice so far! You could probably use a thin faux leather upholstery vinyl. I second going to Jo-ann's. They usually have vinyl that color or at least real close.
You could go for gold leaf for the hand, but that's a lot of area to cover so making a stencil and using metallic spraypaint might give a close enough effect.
Wow, it's been almost a year since I started doing this. It took me one freaken year to make the cover!!!
well anyways, here's the front
and the back
still working on that glass thingy (man, that's the tough one)
