LitRPG cover art progression

Updated: Dec 6, 2020

Hey all!


I wanted to talk about how I got the (amazing) cover for Fragment of Divinity.


I found this picture on Reddit and immediately fell in love with it. I reached out to the artist with my idea and he agreed to work with me.


The artist was Jonathan Elliot. He was easy to work with and a great guy. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a cover designer.


I asked for a picture similar to Ghost Walker, but with a goblin in the background and a hooded figure holding a sword in the foreground.


This was the first draft he sent me:

I loved it, so I agreed that it was what I wanted. Next he sent me this.

Not much changed. Here's draft 3

After that, he sent draft four.

At this point, the base image was done and it was time to add color.

It looked great, but the words weren't standing out enough and it needed a bit more contrast.

The contrast was better, but the sword needed more contrast and the text was still a bit hard to read.

This one was almost perfect, it just needed a tiny bit more contrast between the sword and the figure.

Aaaaand the final version!!

Anyway, I'm incredibly happy with how my cover came out and excited for everyone to read my work!
