Hi, I’m writing a story right now and I’m trying to draw a cover. I want to know what makes you click on a story. Like in a cover do you want the characters kissing, Hugging, talking, etc? And like do you like drawn pictures? I’ve already got 3 designs but there not finished and I wanted to get people’s opinions befor I finished them. Thank you for reading this lol
i think the cover should relate to the story plot like what’s goinng to happen so the viewers know what’s going on
I cannot stress this enough - but characters posing back to back is my absolute weakness. Romance, fantasy, comedy, doesn’t matter. Two characters being back to back on a cover will get me to click no matter what
I’d say depends on the genre and the plot.
I most often have a tendency to click on drawn covers. I feel it is a little more professional and shows that the artist works really hard to make that perfect story. A good DRAWN cover has the correct shades say your character you imagine her with a more peachy undertone you will keep your colors revolving around those red colors. Say your name has a meaning behind it what color really shouts out to you when you think about the background of that name. Keep your story like a web and really try to connect everything with no loose ends that also means your cover.
I dunno Looking at my favorites all the covers are different. It’s a mixed between drawn covers and edited covers. I guess it depends on the aesthetic, to be honest. Typically covers that have a blurred background and is a bit on the darker/gloomy side.
I click onto drawn covers for some reason
For me if story has drawn cover it’s perfect story
Drawn or edited, doesn’t matter. But it has to look aesthetically decent and not awkward.
Ooh tell me about the plot
And “kissing and hugging” sounds against to the new guidelines
Here are my favorite covers from stories I have read. I like seeing cute covers, professional covers, or covers made by very skilled artists!
