Miri Attwater and the Ocean' Secret book cover design, part 5 - the new cover

Now it's time to put it all together! Miri in full color, the background...

Oh! And we added a title, of course.

And the author name. That's really important.

So here it is - the brand new cover for Miri Attwater and the Ocean's Secret!

So what do you think?

Miri Attwater and the Ocean's Secret Cover Redesign, part 5

Now that we had Miri all done for the covers of the Miri Attwater series, the first book needed a background. We did a version of the original cover, a glimpse the castle in the mermaid colony of Kai Kaona.

It's a little simpler than before, but it should show up better in ebook form than the original cover.

Miri Attwater and the Ocean's Secret cover design, part 4

Last week we looked at some changes to the color version of Miri, giving her hands and modifying things like her hair a little bit. But for the new covers for the Miri Attwater series, we didn't want it to just be a flat drawing.

The next step was to add some shading. We decorated her swimsuit a bit. And we corrected finally corrected that color mistake.

Did you figure that out the color mistake yet? Take a look the version in last week's post if you need a hint!
