So … I bet no one thought to see me posting here again any time soon, huh? Myself included! But here I am, and I have some fun stuff to show off … well, fun stuff if you ever read any of my stories lol!
As most of you already know, I unpublished my books a year ago (almost exactly, which seems a little strange!). In the time since, I’ve learned quite a bit about my difficulties functioning in recent years, and while I don’t want to start dumping lengthy explanations on everyone right now, I can say that I’ve discovered new ways to do art, and that’s what’s been taking a lot of my focus!
So in the effort of keeping things short and sweet, I think everyone is aware that I created my own book covers for The Crucible Series. There are several places online where you can purchase stock photos for fairly cheap, and using those, I would piece the cover together, slap the title on it, and voila! For example, here’s Light of Dawn’s old cover:
This is still one of my favorite covers just because I love the light effects! However, I’ve been dabbling in 3D modeling lately, and wouldn’t you know it, I managed to create the characters from my stories! Well, I haven’t created all of them yet, but I do have quite a few, and yes, that includes Charlotte and Ulric! As such, I decided to remake the cover of their book for no other reason than I could, and I love doing graphic design. So without further ado, here’s the new cover for Light of Dawn:
Before I go any further, I wanted to make sure to specify that no, this doesn’t mean I’ll be republishing my books! I’ve still got a long way to go before that option is back on the table again, but I wanted to do something creative, and I had way too much fun piecing this together! I can also say you guys can and should expect to see more in the future because I’m intending to rework the covers of all my books, as well as post some general character art and make a few covers for books I never got the chance to write!
I hope you guys enjoy this! <3
