Twenty One

So here's the results of today. I wasn't going to put them up until another day, but I figured, I'll put them up now since they're something to show for my efforts. I think they look quite good. Well, much better than I thought they would. The colours are faded not out of choice or because of the photograph. My printer doesn't do bright you see. Anyhow. Ta daa?


I would like to die now. Seriously. This is so annoying now. I've done a ton of work today... Urgh. Tired. And so much printing, I'm surprised my poor little terrible printer hasn't died. Anyway. Also my scalpel is now blunt. Bad times. Anyhow. Final roughs printed. I think it's ok now. Did a lot of re-jigging since the last post so hopefully, all needed now is just final prints!


No lines Bungay...


A more detailed plan. I couldn't work out how to make the text boxes have a borders. Never mind...! >< The back and spine of the cover are to have no writing. I've done this because sometimes, you see a book, you like the front and you're intrigued to know more because you're given nothing more on the cover alone...
I hope it looks ok...!!!


So this is my basic book sleeve. I'm going to use the blurb from the brief so that should be fairly simple. If anyone knows an easier way to do this, please feel free to tell me!!! Or anywhere there's a better template or something... Thanks!


One of my tidier ones.
I wish I knew photoshop better. OH well. Practice helps I suppose.
On the other hand, I have now cleaned all three. Just need to get my basic cover mapped out, and I can started putting together ^^ Whoopee!
