The people hosting the contest, asked for the tropiest cover possible, so I headed down to the book store for inspiration. These are the tropes inspired me the most:
1. Girl in Flowing Dress Who Walks Away (and sometimes just sits there)
2. Off With Her Head!
|Also apparently sexy backs with jeans are in...|
3. Face Obscured by Kissing, Light Flare, or Shadow (and sometimes all three)
|So dramatic! (I actually love SEND's cover)|
4. Cropped (Sexy?) Body Parts
|The Bookstore was nice enough to just go ahead and put these all on the same shelf, so I didn't even have to look!|
My Tropetastic Cover:
✓Girl in Flowing Dress
✓Off With Her Head
✓Cropped Body Part
The contest was for comp sketches, and my plan was to photograph my gorgeous family if my piece was chosen. Sadly it was not. While on the level of tropiness with the finalist, it wasn't quite as rape-y as they wanted.
I had a good time thinking about tentacles and ridiculous typefaces, though.
Hilariously Melodramatic Bonus Covers:
|AHahah. Angel on a motorcycle.|
