Briana M's Cover Art Contest Out of Free Will :)

If you are a first time artist/editor, and you are looking for a project to do, you came to the right place! I would like you to make covers for my story, both large and small. The name of my story is called Sophisticated & Deceived. In order, for you guys to make the covers, you have to know what the plot is. Sophisticated and Deceived is about young millennial named Ashden. She is a 26 year old young woman who is learning that life isn’t about being emotionless and too sophisticated. Of course, she’s going to get help to solve her ignorant thinking. A guy named Grayson will help her explore her emotions in life. He’ll end up falling in love with her as he is helping her through her emotionless life.

Here’s how I would like the covers to look: I would like Ashden and Grayson to be flirting with each other in the small cover because it shows that they do love each other, and they have a romantic side. However, for the large cover, I want the both be somewhere mad at each other because sometimes they don’t agree on the same things. That’s how relationships go.

Ashden's Details

Skin Color: Light
Eyebrows: Defined natural
Hair + Hair Color: Diva Curls + black
Eyes + Eye Color: Upturned Bold + Taupe

Mouth + lip color: Full round + cherry red

Grayson's Details

Skin Color: Peach

I would like both covers to seem realistic. I don’t mind if you add props to the cover. I would like the word “Sophisticated” to be in cursive, while “Deceived” is in bold lettering. Please include the “&” sign in the cover.
