A while back, I read a book called The Wish List. There was something about the book… all sparkly and magically looking… that really grabbed my attention. Okay… so this isn’t a sparkly cover. However, it has a lightness to it (and not just because she’s flying on a broom) that reminds me of The […]
Wraparound Cover Design
So, I was in the mood for a little steampunk. I’m rather fond of steampunk… at least the idea behind it. The gears, grit, and rust fascinate me. It has this wonderful mix of archaic and advanced technology that seems so unreal.
So here we have the last cover. As I was making these covers, I noticed the black female/white male is quite popular in terms of cover art… and possibly even writings. In fact, when I did a search on interracial erotica, I noticed most of the covers were this combination. What I find odd about it,
I really like this cover. Of all the covers I’ve done in this series, this is my favorite. Something about the pose is just so intimate. Yet it also has an air of playfulness.
I’ve been playing with these covers on and off for quite a while. Like the last set (elemental covers), I’d considered and did use different models. Then I asked myself why I’d want to use different models. Typically, when I write Reena Jacobs (at least when I wrote in the past), I tend to use
Last but not least, we have ice. Originally, I wanted to make this water. However, Ice just seemed a bit bolder. Plus, Ice seems more like the opposite of Fire.I rather like this poses. There’s something about it that says, “Here I am! I’m confident enough to be me.” If you haven’t seen the other
Sunsets, sunrises… There’s something special about them that is just too beautiful. Sometimes I wonder if it’s because it’s out of reach. It makes me wonder what’s over the horizon… Where is the sun disappearing to or where has it come from? Anyway… next up is the fire themed cover. If you missed the last
Life is finally starting to slow down again, and I’m feeling a lot more focused and productive at work. 🙂 I took two classes this semester. With everything going on in life and at work, I think I hit my breaking point. It definitely affected my school situation. Not only did the stress cut into
I’ve wanted to do an elemental series for a long while. However, I just gotten around to starting them. What I have in mind is wind, fire, ice, and earth. Up first? Wind. 🙂 What I like about this cover is the simplicity. I think because there’s not a lot happening in the cover, it provides
I’m not normally into horror. In fact, I think I’ve only tried one horror like cover. However, I was really in the mood for some creepy trees. However, I felt like I needed something beyond the trees. Well, the house was more of an afterthought… something I needed to keep the trees company. Looking at
I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about runaways. They’ve been on my mind though. Being a teen runaway seems so lonely. How bad does life have to get at home to push a kid to runaway. I imagine whatever experience would lead to a common distrust. No matter how many other kids or
And continuing on with he Whimsical covers… Well, this is a bit less whimsical. It still has the faerie action going on. However, I look at this one and it promises action and darkness, where as the previous two were a bit more mystical and light. I don’t know. Though the style is similar and
