Default Second run at a label

Second label coincidentally enough for the second batch ever.

Thoughts and comment and razzing are appreciated...:

Per the suggestion of BerserkerB, now edited to take out the says-it url. Definitely an improvement and one I wanted, but didn't know how to do...until I messed with the Paint program a bit and also got the color right to match the background.

I don't think there's anything I can do about the dragon size.

Good concept, I like the logo. I would try saving it at a bit higher quality though, or retouching that dragon.. it's gotten pretty brutalized by jpeg compression at some point.

Maybe trying breaking up the brown with an image, or even a texture?

I just hit google and threw something in there to show you what I mean... a nice brown leather texture might look cool as well.



^something like that? Break up all those bland colors.

That really is fantastic, Mr. Trout, and by the way, I really like all your books.

Seriously, great, great stuff. The additions, suggestions, and help is very much appreciated.
