Talking Book Cover Contest: Test your SKILLS! CLICK HERE! *BIG PRIZES*

Are you good at making book covers? Is this your first time? Second? Third? Fourth? Fifty-fifth?! It doesn't matter: Now's a time to TEST YOUR SKILLS!

Here's the contest rules and baselines:

BASELINES

Your cover will be judged by the following--

Visualization-- How well I can see the images on your cover (fainted images are okay)

Style-- Don't be too origional! Make your own style--colors, explosions, anything at all!

Color-- Use colors that suit the cover well. Example: The book is called "Silver Water"... don't use bright orange! Use silver, white, or grey!

Imagry-- If you're using a picture off the internet, MAKE SURE to add something to it! If you don't, your cover is disqualified.

Direction-- If you follow the directions good, you'll get more bonus points!


BONUS POINTS

The winning cover will be decided by how many bonus points it has! Bonus points are given to how well you follow the baselines and rules! I will also give other ways to get bonus points!


MAKE THIS COVER (OPTIONAL) AND GET TWO EXTRA BONUS POINTS!

Here's a cover you can make--if you make it correctly, you get two extra bonus points. If you make it incorrectly, it is considered your own work, and will not recieve the extra points.

Default Haley:

Great Job! This wasn't exactly what I asked for, but you get 1 bonus point!

The reason you don't get 2 is because you misspelled my last name (You said 'Favora', it's 'Favaro', and you did four different squares. It was origionally supposed to be a whole picture of the ocean and faded images of gold coins, sunken ship, and sharks, but GREAT JOB!

And, to answer your questions:

Yes, you can submit a cover you already created. Just make sure it's not 'stolen'.

I will try to make a cover, but it might take a while, because the computer in which I usually make my covers on broke... -_-
