Twangst by Magdaleina Twangst by Magdaleina
Done for my computer art class. We had to choose something to satirize, kinda like photoshop phriday does on SomethingAwful. I chose Twilight because -- let's face it, the fanbase needs to learn how to laugh at itself.

Yes, I realize I switched tenses at the end of the summary on the back cover. That was changed on the version I turned in and I could have sworn I sent that version to myself for uploading.

Wonky.

Anyway, I did not photomanipulate the original cover. All the artwork on the book, itself, was done wholly in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. I drew the picture, then painted in PS7. The text was all done in PS7 after downloading a couple fonts. The book onto which it is all superimposed is a photo, however, because we had to make it look like an actual product. Everything else I reproduced by hand. Even the barcode is fake (notice that it counts 0 through 10).

Now, before you take offense, just bear in mind that this is supposed to be a parody that reflects some of my opinions and the opinions of several others. All fanbases are made fun of; it's a fact of life when you're a fan, but the only fanbases that DESERVE to be taken seriously are the ones that have a sense of humor about themselves.

It should switch tenses on the back cover! That would add more satire because that's what SMeyer does in her book

Reminds me of the cover for Nightlight. :D I love the little details.

I think a fan worth his or her salt will acknowledge that Twilight can be fun to read but is definitely not quality writing.

I bought Nightlight recently. Good thing I nipped in there a couple years ahead of it, or I'd run the risk of being accused of something -- but then when the enduring image from the original cover is an apple there's REALLY only so many directions you can go with it.

Oh yeah, I totally get that. I guess I said it reminds me of the cover of Nightlight because I was about to comment on how nice it would be if this were a book. Though seeing as it definately could go in a different direction from Nightlight's parody, I think I should have gone with the original comment.

i just hate this damn fanbase. it doesn't know anything better. there's so much better vampire novels to read.

i felt like the world changed when twilight was introduced to it. well, it groups all the idiots in one place so we can see who the idiots are.
