Princess2nbI wanted to do more book covers, and challenge myself. The  main part of the challenge was to do a book cover from only from creative common images. And everything is in fact from creative common images.  I also wanted to have a good cache of book covers to sell this summer. I also wanted to practice on making original covers.  Also, I really wanted to use the model, because it’s very rare to find affordable stock images with people of color.

Punk Rock Girl (Fire Down Below)So another premade book cover.  I was inspired by the actual stock photo which is fantastic.  I actually took a regular cityscape and set it in fire (well in photoshop)!  I actually like it a lot, and it didn’t take a whole lot of time to make.  I really loved how it turned out.

YA Book Cover So I wanted to dip into something YA Premade Book Covers. So I found a summary on Fictionpress. I liked the base concept, but I hated the name and decided to base this premade cover based on the concept.  I really like the outcome, but it took forever to tweak everything just so to make it as awesome as it came out.  This cover for me, is the best original cover to date,  and I practically made it on a penny budget.  I’m just so freaking proud of myself.
