The Final Countdown (the cover journey V)

Seeing all the layouts together, and scrolling up and down between images has given me a clear idea of what I want to show on The Priest’s cover. Although the last two models were clearly attractive, judging from the comments I received, I disliked the Jacob-looking one, and I thought that the other one was too beautiful. Mauricio is raggedly handsome; he is definitely not a pretty boy.

So I decided to go back to the first Mauricio, and combine two different layouts.

Working on the final cover (hopefully!)

Amazon is killing me. They didn’t do a clear job at explaining what they require regarding the cover’s format. So, Sandro played around with the numbers we found, which clearly don’t make sense, as you can see from the examples below. Anyway, I asked him to try something at  960×1280 at 72 dpi, and let’s see what happens to the cover. For now, what do you think?

Looking For New Faces (the cover journey III)

Sandro has just sent me three new layouts. Be the first to take a look, and tell me what do you think!

I’ll let you judge the model, but I only say that I would like bigger eyes. And I don’t like the font used for my name.

I like my name much better, but I don’t know. I am not convinced, yet.

I still don’t like my name, but I love the title. The only problem I see with the title put there, is that is going to hide the City of Men, but maybe is not such a big deal after all. I also think that the model’s forehead has a primate quality, but mouth and nose, oh my…

One last consideration, I prefer ma man shaved and disheveled, what about you?
