Eye of the Ocelot

by Volta Rose

Hi, Michael,
I’m excited to show you a gorgeous cover that would stand out on any Barnes & Noble display table–researched and in keeping with big publisher covers for the genre–detective/mystery. The cover is dynamic with lots of symbolism. I like how we establish her to be both vulnerable and contemplative as a detective would be. Her hair is “lit” darker as the scene is darker to create tension. The ocelot prowls as its killer might have. We then want to know who the man in the back is. Her lover or ocelot killer? Please scroll down for more design analysis and full cover images.

Design Analysis

Flowing hair in the wind and blanket around her shoulders keeps scene a little romantic, rather than hardcore mystery book. We seek to establish series branding with a custom big publisher font that will carry to other books. We balance the masculine/ feminine with the use of the secondary cursive font. Color palette is a little ominous, yet vibrant and eye catching. The sparks portend a passage in the book and add even more eye candy to the visually balanced cover. Please scroll down for enlarged cover view.

Please Note: Any imperfections will be corrected upon design approval. Colors will render according to individual computer monitor settings. Print and digital are two different mediums. Please order a hard copy from the printer to review for color/tone adjustments. For example, gloss covers tend to print darker than matte.
