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.
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.

I’m redesigning the cover for Lust and I’m thinking about making the rest of the series similar to this one, with different titles of course. The reason for the redesign is since the series is about ghosts and psychics that I will use an eye as the symbol for psychic abilities. The third eye. I’m also going with magenta as the color for lust since most people recognize it as a color for lust instead of blue. I’m going to stylized the eye in the series title. The title is going to be more spooky similar to Gothika and The Ring to give it a ghostly feel trying the visual elements together. I think the series title needs to be smaller like other urban fantasy titles. The title will also be colored, ghostly, smokey, eerie lol. What do you think so far and what suggestions do you have?
