I'm back with another cover! This is the last of the initial three covers I made for our 3rd World comic. I experimented a little with the process this time. Instead of inking my pencils I went ahead and painted it using watercolors. After that I decided it needed a little more definition so I inked over top of my colors. I certainly has a different effect and for the most part I like the way it turned out. It's a simple design that hopefully conveys what the reader will find inside the book. I also think this cover really sticks out because of the starkness of the white background. That was the intent at least.
I tried to make create all three of the initial covers with a unifying style, something to give myself direction and help the readers recognize and remember our story. I choose this minimal design focusing each issues cover on a single character hoping to grow interest in each. I also didn't want to end up with twenty covers of our protagonist Moonfish, even though I think she's a wonderful character.
