I woke up this morning to an email letting me know that the artist I hired from Fiverr to do a sketch for the mock cover of An Epic Tale had finished and my order was ready. I was not prepared for the awesome that I was about to see.
How freaking cool is that sketch?! I mean, seriously? I showed you guys the horrible draft sketch that I gave the guy, right? Look at what he did with that! Can you tell that I’m super excited by this drawing?
Anyway, since I want this to be on my cover, I cropped it a bit so the watermark was off it (don’t worry, if I ever self-publish with this on the cover, I’ll credit the artist on the copyright page) and then started playing around with fonts. I’m not sure I’m really happy with it, but finding good, free fonts for commercial use is hard!
I have four that I kind of like, but three of them look a bit bland. The fourth one is kind of cool, but I’m not sure if it’s right for the story. So, thoughts? This is the fourth one:
Also, colour or no colour? I kind of like it in the black and white style it’s got, but thoughts?
Happy Tuesday guys.
