Sterek Book CoverThis was done at the request of the fabulous Plot Queen, who basically gave carte blanche to do what I wanted. I actually was so nervous about doing this piece that I scrapped at least once version of this cover, before making this final piece. I love how it came out, and it’s a bit more violent than I usually go with my art, but it really fits the story.  But most of the credit goes to AshenSorrow who made such a fabulous pre-made background that just fit the atmosphere I was going for. So kudos to he/she/ze for that.


So do you love it or hate it?  I always love feedback, and feel free to tell me what you think.

As a broke artist, I often love to use free fonts. I am a frequent visitor to places like fontspace or 1001freefonts for free commercial fonts. However, there are some fonts that have been used so much in designs that every time I see them I cringe.  So in effort to stop the insanity,  I’m listing the top five fonts I hate.


1. Morpheus

I see this font being used everywhere. I swear to god, I actually have three different books on my desk right now that have used this font for their cover.  It’s supposed to be Gothic (without looking too Gothic) looking, and perfect match for the ‘Urban Paranormal’ books and shows.


Alternatives:



2. Scriptina

It might have been an elegant font once upon a time, however it is SO OVERUSED. The most popular uses for this font has been for romance book covers and weddings invitations.


Alternatives



3. Bleeding Cowboys

If there any design to do with Cowboys or anything Country and Western, then you have probably seen this font used. I have never liked it. I don’t like the grunge distorted look, I don’t like looping lines. I quite frankly find the font ugly, and I practically facepalm every time I see it.


Alternatives



4. Comic Sans

The most hated of all fonts. It’s supposed to be fun and informal, but for most people (especially designers) this font has the power to give them a headache at the mere sight of it.


Alternatives



5. Brush Script

Another supposed to be elegant (but more informal) font that has been WAY TOO OVER USED. It  I have seen everywhere, and I just want to stab things at the sight of it.


Alternatives





So this are my most hated fonts? What fonts do you hate and why?
