Cover Art Critique

This cover has an intriguing mix of figurative illustration, graphic effect, and a very strong iconography. The bar on the right reminds me of some of the classic novels from the 1960s, as does the font. The upward slant of

Cover Art Critiques

Normally, this would be way too many colors for me. However, this totally works for this cover. The overall night theme and dark blue ties it together, and since this is a fairy tell retelling based on a Chinese story,

Cover Art Critique

A Rorschach test blob wouldn’t be my first choice for a cover. However, this one is rather intriguing, and I can see the possibilities. After all, why settle for just one, precise image, when you could effectively have dozens of

Cover Art Critique

This one has a lot going on but it does so without being obtrusive. The limited color scheme and the mix between illustrative and pictorial aspects works. The upside down blood building is a little confusing, but I think it

Cover Art Critique

This is an unusual color scheme for a figured cover, but it works. The cool blue informs something creepy and mysterious, even though it’s bright and easy to see. The Victorian house in the background tells me it might be

Cover Art Critique

This is an amazing cover. I adore the illustration, and the subtle puzzle pattern adds questions and intrigue. The color scheme is soft and pleasing, and the unique font, while still perfectly legible, is amazing. I’m a huge fan of

Book Cover Critique

Limited color scheme? Check. Strong imagery? Check. Atmosphere in the artwork? Check. The only thing I don’t really care for is the red spider symbol. I think it could be better integrated with the background cover art, or placed somewhere

Book Cover Critique

With any fantasy cover, there’s always the urge to put too much on the cover. You’re trying to define an entire world, after all. However, with just a few iconic images, you can offer a hint of the world-building without

Cover art critique

Sometimes dragons, magical lights, and fantasy iconography aren’t the right choice. But visual drama always works. This book is simple, almost non-fiction in it’s feel. But it does spell out (literally) that it’s a novel. The simple white figurines with
