The Mechanical (The Alchemy Wars, #1) by Ian Tregillis. www.goodreads.com/book/show/20…
Chinese version cover art. 

No, not a "spot the differences" (¬_¬) Just the color!I was in difficulty of make decision, but the publisher picked the left one. 

Which do you prefer, the left one or the right one •́ω•̀?

Ok, the right one is won by a weak advantage...

It would be funnier if depending what cover of the book you choose to buy the stories's ending would depend. I have acutually bought a book like that last year.

Actually if I have to buy a book based on the cover I like, I'll definitely choose the right one..., but well, publisher know the best...

I would have picked the right one's background with the left one's characters.

I like the palette of the right, but the left feels like it has more ~life~. The warmer colors are just more alive.

I like them both!

But I can see why the publisher went with the left - the color of the heroine's outfit is more attention-getting, some of the smaller fireballs are the same shade as her dress, and the background/sky appears to be "richer" and stormier. Always a grab visually. The right image has more subdued, and even peaceful colors. Green/teal/light blue = soothing. Lavender/shades of red = more energizing. And "energizing" equates with "noticeable" and "book selling." 

Just my humble thoughts as a former editor.

My personal choice is also the left one because it emphasize more the main subject ^_^

The right one's background seems like close level value to the main subject ^_^.

Either of them is Amazing so dont worry ^_^

Thanks for sharing your artwork!
