Trinity - Defying Destiny by TriZiana Trinity - Defying Destiny by TriZiana
New cover done for KyliePrice .

A little bit about the book;

"The monsters are exposed, as Trinity and her friends find the life of a supernatural is not what it seems. Friendships are forged and alliances are made, as they try to stay ahead of the humans that now hunt them. Doubt clouds Trinity's mind though, as the right path seems to take her down the wrong one. Lust will consume her, despair and torment will rip her apart. Fate has many plans for her, will she find the strength within her to defy them all?"

Overall, the components of this cover have been blended quite well. The colors complement each other, the lighting is beautiful and draws attention to the main figure (though I feel like the back of the model's shirt looks a bit flat), and the use of depth of field in the bush at front adds a really nice touch. The hair itself is drawn beautifully, and the overall feel of the artwork has a painterly quality.

On that note, I do feel that the rocks the model is facing seem almost too sharp/realistic in comparison to the rest of the image. I also find the lightning strike distracting, and I wonder if different placement might have helped alleviate the distraction, or if having the strike be not so bright (which draws the eye to it) and also that it looks like it's running through the main figure's head-- possibly because the sharp quality of the lightning matches the sharpness of the figure, compared to the blurred quality of the rest of the background.

However, the text is beautifully rendered. Easy to read, immediately noticeable... and the lighting and color of the text sits it right in with the rest of the image.

Reasons for my ratings:

Vision: It fits very nicely around a theme. 4 Stars

Originality: Unfortunately, this cover does feel like other covers I've seen. However, it does so in a way that is still appealing, so 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Technique: 4 stars, for all the reasons I mentioned above (and especially the use of depth of field. Had the rocks also had a bit more blur, I might have given this 4.5 stars).

Impact: This caught my attention well enough that I decided to write my first Deviant Art critique. I'm not sure how memorable it will be once I move on to working on something else, but we'll see. So... 3.5 out of 5 stars. (Technically, this might be higher).

Overall, I think this is a beautiful book cover. :-)

lol I know, you posted a tutorial didnt you a while ago? I think I remember it, but I havent checked it out.  Working on another one with blood and having issues, again lol.  I tried another tutorial but it didnt come out the way I wanted, so back to the drawing board lol.  I have to go find it, me and tutorials usually dont work out, I loose patience and just end up doing my own thing lol

Yeah I did... I'll add it here for you. Well blood, as is anything else in this genre, is all about finding your own way to interpret what you see... And I was the same with all the blood tutorials, exactly the same, so I figured out my own way... Look at a lot of photographs of blood, it helps...

I unfaved it, then faved it again so I can find it more easily when I get home lol.  I have been looking at other photos and your right, that helps, in alot of ways, for me anyway, that helps more than the tutorials
