Well, I have been thinking a lot about publishing and writing these past few days / weeks, and while this will all be covered in a few posts later in the week, I have decided to try my hand at creating cover art. Mainly because I don’t like to depend on people, or badger them for things. The more I can do myself, the more control I have and I can push myself to meet any deadlines I have in mind.
With that said, here is my first attempt at a real piece of cover art, previous attempts were just an image with a title This time I really played around on Paint.net.
It still needs something to make it pop. In my opinion. I think something in the background to remove the black.
I would love to hear your thoughts. It would be for the eBook version of my short story collection. The Musings of a Hideous Mind: Volume 1
The lead story is about a bride who gets drenched in a rain of blood during the wedding ceremony, so there is a reasoning behind the image I chose.
I haven’t bought the images yet, so any and all comments will be welcome.
