Kabbalah Not So Moderne
Though the client approved the second sketch I did for the Kabbalah cover, I wasn't satisfied with it. So I cleaned up the "floor" of the design and added in the black and white checkerboard pattern which is commonly described in the book. I made the angels more "angelic" and shaped the central "Tree of Life" into a two-panel shape reminiscent of the "Ten Commandments" which would make a good match with the Ten Sephiroth. I also added curtainlike shaping to the starry blue background. This ought to do it and then I can go to final on this piece.
