So, as most of you know, I’m currently writing a novel called Lost in a Dream. It’s nearly finished, and with it getting so close, I thought now would be a good time to start figuring out the cover.
Now, I’ll be honest–I made these, and I know they aren’t professional. However, a good cover costs about $400 minimum, and I need to put as much money as possible into hiring an editor to make my story the best it can possibly be. So, with that said, I drafted up a couple covers, and I’d love feedback about which one you guys think is the best. My girlfriend has an eye for art and thinks the first one has much better dragons. They also take up more empty space.
Any pixellation is just because of the presentation, the files are SVG and scale smoothly (including the gradient, which looks weirdly like blinds on the left half when I export it as a PNG file.
These are my two current drafts–let me know your thoughts! I’ve also been thinking about a faint pattern on each side, since the story is very much about night/day. Maybe a light star pattern on the left, a sun pattern on the right, or something. If you have ideas, let me know!
Thank you 😀
