Book Cover Design: Redesigning Favor of Ares series by Terrio Jenkins

Book Cover Design: Redesign concept of Favor of Ares Series by Terrio Jenkins

Updating the covers for the Favor of Ares series.  Although some of the covers were interesting, overall the symbolism was a little lost and the colors (at least for Lust) were also lost.

Here are some of my goals for the redesign.

Favor of Ares Book 1

Eye motif to reference the “third eye” which is connected to psychics.  Psychics eyes( Iris) glow when using their power. They can see ghosts, most possessions, enhance a physical or mental ability, astrally project or physically travel to the astral plane.

Color: represents the sin the murder revolves around.  The color also represents the mental disorder related to the sin.

Circles: the shape is used as a symbol for containment, in this case the containment of power.

Title: I still want to have a ghostly type font/effect similar to Gothika. This is to add the element of supernatural to the covers with glowing gradients of the title and sin.  I ‘m going to experiment with a white, gray, or silver text for name, title, and subtitle. Keeping with the theme from previous designs.

Spear: they symbol for Ares, optional at this point, but will be centered if used.
