Interestingly enough, at college and previous to that i would say I was a detailed artist. It’s what I felt comfortable with. I could spend hours drawing in minute details into my art. But for this weeks challenge I found it difficult to be aas detailed as I used to be. Maybe it’s a time limit thing. Pre kids I had more time to draw in detail and take hours over one piece. So the above image is not as detailed as I would like it to be – I may come back to it.

Week 16 – Book Cover

Book cover design isn’t an area I have had much practise in, infact this is probably the first book cover I have ever designed , so I know I have a long way to go to get it professional looking. A useful tip I have read about designing front covers is to keep it minimal, tis type of style will help the book to look timeless. It also helps the reader to focus on the book’s title and authors name.

I like what I have achieved here but it lacks depth and tone – another illustration I may come back to at a later date.
