Slowly and surely this novel will be fully done. A few days ago I just sent all my pages to the printer, waiting for the watercolor paper prints to come out. So I have been thinking about how this story should be presented, what design of the cover page will fascinate the readers.
Every cover is one of the strongest elements to a book is the imagery that depict the story. From simple icons spotted below the title or a fully illustrated scenes from the author's words. Usually the cover should feature a listing of these ideals: the main character(s), a hint to the story plot, a remembrance scene that will interest the possible readers, or a defined speculation of emotions in this narration. One of these tip or not were most of the reasons, or you were the ones who read the summaries on the back.
The first one I did is the one on the left, with Katie's golden locks largely swirl around the sky. However, looking back upon this, the color pallet choices are a little too bright, especially in Rob's blue coat.
Then the painting on the right seems to be more colorful and filling in the composition a lot more than the first one. There is a lot more of a playful feel with Katie's golden-yellow strands with complement her characteristics. Also the pieces are more defined than be blurred by the darken colors.
