Ever have one of those projects that you think is finished then at the last minute it isn't and you have to go back in and re-paint or re-work a few details? The cover art for Spacecarrier, by Veradance, is no different. Although the description of the Vorn (the four armed alien) is that he sort of blends into his surroundings on the ship, that doesn't offer a good cover art composition.
So, first I put him in dress whites, vs the armor designed to blend into the ship's hull. But then, the Vorn's fur/coat seemed to blend into the grey hull of the ship. We decided to have me go back into the ship and alter the hull enough to make him stand out better. Now the area around the view port has a blue tone, while the rest of the ship remains grey.
I then went 'old school' with the rest of the design, placing the art in it's own 'window' and designing the elements on a bed of stars.
As soon as I have the related links for those interested in buying a copy of the book, which will be available in both eBook and print, I will let ya'll know.
Let me now what ya'll think of the cover art and design.
Until next time ...
