The final versions of the Viking Love Slave covers are finally done. For my own amusement, I’ve decided to chart the progression of each cover from the original model’s image through all the subsequent revisions. Once I’m done, you’ll understand why I say that Farah Evers is a saint for what she puts up with from me.
Let’s begin with the original image of model Angelina Cavanaugh taken by The Reed Files. I’ve thrown my own watermark on it since I wasn’t able to link to the demo version on the stock site.
Initially, a friend, Lisa Rayns, helped me create a concept cover.
Farah got involved once I lured her in with shameless flattery and a trail of dollar bills.
The background didn’t look SciFi enough for me, so Farah changed out the background.
An annoying series of color and brightness tweaks followed. More than I can count.
