Have you ever read a story because you saw an intriguing illustration?
Which of these styles would be most likely to draw you into a story? (Examples from The Dark Tower)
(Whoa. I put in all sorts of text in the middle of the poll and it got cut. I'm putting in the DT illustrations rather than comparing fan artists just to get out of the "I like the stories so-and-so illustrates" or just the simple question of which circles we read in. All of the above are from the same series of books and have the same group of characters, and I'm interested in knowing why particular styles seem intriguing, while others leave you cold. Is there a difference in what you find intriguing as art and what would make you say, "Hey, I wonder what the story's like?" Or are your criteria the same?)
