my latest project for my history of graphics was to redesign the cover of a book to "capture its mood" or some garbage.

I think you did a good job with displaying the "mood". I really like the way the blood splatter looks. I would see what a stroke or a drop shadow looks like on the text though, seems to be lacking a little pop to distinguish from the background.

Ace work!

I like it as is, but post the revision. I'm interested as to what changes you're gonna make.

took some advice about saturation, slightly rotating the text and making the title larger. plus i added a drop shadow like d suggested.

Good thinking with rotating the text and the saturation looks good too. I think the drop shadow makes the text more readable.
