My third cover will be for ‘The First Men in the Moon’ by H.G. Wells.
I drew an illustration of the Moon in Illustrator. I used gradient, transparency and sponge effect from the Effect gallery to give the illustration some texture so it does not look generic.
I added a dark blue background using similar effects. I wanted for the word ‘Moon’ in the title to overlap the picture of the Moon but I was not happy with the way it looked. In the end I kept the Moon in the lower centre of the cover with the right end of it cropped.
I kept the use of the Century Gothic bold font like with other covers and kept the colour of the text on the cover similar to the colour of the Moon.
