So after reflecting upon my last entry with the book cover mock-ups, I decided I didn’t like them. The feel they gave me was that of a self-published manual or textbook.
I decided to take my idea of the color schemes and still run with it, but this time make the covers more graphic. In the end, this is what I came up with:
I feel like these versions of the book covers meet my personal expectations of what I expect from myself.
As mentioned above, I stuck with the same color schemes as in my original idea (pink and black for Ann Veronica, Blue and Brown for The Invisible Man – The Time Machine is green and purple). There is a third color, white, which is really more of an accent color to help things stand out. I played with different shades and opacities of the colors, too, in order to help with the range of possibilities.
