It’s Friday and I don’t feel like doing a post.
The good news — knocks on head — is that I seem to finally be getting over “whatever the heck this was.” The bad news is that I’m ridiculously late on everything, including promised covers.
So, I’ll get to those and finishing a few stories, and…. well, I suppose the house needs dusting, really.
So, today, for your amusement “Covers you can get from Pixabay, which are basically covers and ready to go.” And hopefully spotlighting a few artists. Who knows? maybe one of you guys will even decide to hire one of them.
So first, this artist:
I don’t know if the artist s rendering stuff, or using pieces of what other people post, and it’s obvious some of this stuff isn’t cover-quality, but a lot of it IS. And honestly even the so so, depending on genre, would be covers anyone would be proud to have 10 years ago. Things have changed, a lot. And for the best. It’s easier and cheaper to to get decent art than ever before.
And THIS one is unusual because this stuff is done with filters. Good filter use is not always easy to find. Honestly, if I were doing fairytales, I’d be looking at this portfolio a lot. Of course not every image is right for that genre, but a lot are.
Another portfolio, pretty much all cover-worthy. Just not many there. But I’m sure you can contact the artist, if needed.
This next one I’m going to spotlight because these are handdrawn, and at least in the picture, the artist seems pretty young.
Again, good for fairytales and YA (mostly because of the type of drawing, not because there’s anything wrong with it.)
Anyway, stuff for you guys to play with, while I go do stuff that resembles work….
