So, I've just gotten back from MoCCA and was trying to notice which covers people were drawn to. What actually makes people want to pick up a comic book? It doesn't matter how good the content is if nobody will bother to pick it up. Below are a few quick studies of covers ideas for my first chapter of Die, Baby, Die! They are in no particular order. Please weigh in and let me know your thoughts on which cover you find most appealing and why.
The cover above will be a lot cleaner. I was even thinking about only colouring Chiyoko's lips and eyes in the bottom right corner and leaving the rest as black line art.
The one above is a spoof of the Breakfast Club movie. I couldn't resist, I've always wanted to redraw that cover and it seems to fit perfectly with the characters I'm working with in the first chapter. All the characters would be computer coloured in this case.
Below are three different colour studies of one design. The font might actually be a bit different, I'm not crazy about that Y, but this is the general idea of it.
Thanks for checking this out! I'm trying to get this cover finished sometime soon, and I'll post the final version when I finish it.
