The Pen-Ultimate Face of "A Mage's Power"
In an earlier post I announced I was ordering a book cover from Probook Covers .What you see below this line is Version #3.
Two and three were mainly tweaks. This has been the basic form from the start. I was impressed at how Mr.Pennington seized the fundamentals from the start. If I were writing High Fantasy I most likely would have accepted the first version, but as I am writing Low Fantasy, I asked for tweaks. I like this version because it has the mountain in the background: mountains are a reoccuring image in Journey to Chaos so I wanted to allud to them here. However, there is an appeal to Version #2.
This one lacks the mountain in the background and the middle color in the 'magic arc' is different. I like this one because it puts the focus entirely on the mage and the title. Neither one is quite perfect because of the middle color. I'd like it to be a golden/golden brown color because that color is a plot point. I'm split between the two. What do you think?
