High Moor 3 Cover Art and Concepts
So, after a few weeks of going back and forth, last night I signed off on the High Moor 3 cover.
As ever, Stu Smith from Graviton Creations and I went through quite a few different concepts before we settled on the final design.
First lot of concept sketches
Second lot of concept sketches
At first, we thought about showing a guard tower on the main cover
But it was on there, I was worried that it would be too indistinct as a thumbnail
This was too cluttered
Whereas this one was too empty. Plus I hate black spines on books. Looks amatuerish
We were getting close with this one. Just needed something to fill that empty space
Like a hand – this was the concept that I signed off on
And here is the finished cover in all its glory
