I’ve seen a lot of Re-Create Cover Contests but never bothered entering until last night. I was itching to do something on Photoshop since I haven’t touched it in a while. I stumbled upon The Sapphire Talisman contest on La Femme Readers and decided to enter.
I personally love how my cover turned out. This was my first time ever recreating a book cover so I was very happy with the results. Originally, I was trying to make the model’s hair from brunette to blonde to portray Julia, the main protagonist, but it turned out to be a lot easier to turn the hair read to represent Alora.
Nice cover! I love the model you chose. Her coat is awesome and she has that “hair blowing in the wind” thing that always gets me on YA covers. Good luck!
Great model choice ^_^ and as another commenter said I like the hair blowing in the wind. The only thing is Sapphire is a bit hard to read but other than that great job for a first try
