But if this is the final cover layout I feel the logo kind of takes a bite out of the top of the image. Also, it’s sort of a big blob of white that to my mind contrasts oddly with the subtler tones of the artwork.
Layout: Not crazy about having that big white oval at the top. The white color is a bit stark, and the oval covers too much of the image, IMHO. Have you considered losing the oval and just overlaying the “Legends & Labyrinths” logo text directly onto the cover? Just a thin white outline around the letters themselves for contrast should do the trick.
If you’re keen on keeping the oval, another option would be to shrink the art down a bit so that it sits entirely below the oval, with no overlap. And shrink the logo a bit as well, I think.
The oval isn’t what I found distracting…it’s the bluish crystals sprouting from the ground in various places. Given that the adventurers and the monsters are all in earthy-toned colors, having the crystals be blue draws the eye to them, and away from the action.
I think the artwork is great but it’s really let down by the logo. It’d be a shame if your cover wasn’t as good as it could be. If you don’t know any graphic designers that could help you out then feel free to give me a holler.
