When I’m not elbow deep in editing, I like to draw and work on graphic design projects.
I’ve been planning on participating in a challenge at Wattpad for some time now, but needed a good cover to promote the project with.
So I started collecting stock art and working on a cover. I created the first two and asked for feedback.
They were well received, but the story is a romance, so that made the first cover not quite right. The second cover, I was told, appeared to be two young men. While I actually really loved the photo because of how tomboy-ish the girl appeared, I didn’t want my cover to be misleading. So I tried again.
Again, neither were quite right. Most my friends leaned towards the kissing photo, while a friend of mine in the graphic design field mentioned a dislike of the feathered white edge. So I sat on it for a while longer and decided to try again with the feedback I’d gotten in mind.
The final result:
I feel like this is the one. Or at least, it’s the one I’m going with because I need to work on writing and drawing instead of a cover for a story for a challenge on Wattpad.
