WELCOME TO WICKED BOOK COVERS
Wicked Book Covers has just reached its two-year anniversary, and in that time, I’ve learned a few things along the way. My work has gotten much cleaner and much more original than when I started. But most importantly, I’ve noticed a trend in cover design. It seems like we see the same stock images over and over and over again on lots of different covers. Sure, they all may look a little different, but at the end of the day they don’t stand out from the crowd. So, with much debate, I’ve decided to change the way we do things here at Wicked. First of all, I have eliminated some of the services we used to provide in order to focus my time on what’s really important to me, and that’s GREAT covers! Second, I’ve decided that I will no longer be using stock photo models on my covers.
What does this mean? This means that I will be providing authors with a one-of-kind cover that they can’t get anywhere else. No one will have the exact same photo on their cover as you. Your cover will be made with a combination of 3D models (all created by Wicked) and digital painting, layered with a little bit of stock for backgrounds and textures. All this together will give you the one-of-kind, stop-and-look-at-me effect that will help you sell your book!
This decision took some serious debate on my part because I know that there are a lot of authors that WANT the look that stock photo models give. Many people I talked to about this idea of mine were skeptical that I would be eliminating those clients. But, after much thought, I came to the conclusion that was really ok. There are a lot of designers out there, some who are really fantastic, who provide this type of cover so I don’t feel like I’m doing anyone a disservice by no longer offering it.
