My most recent The Gamblers cover doesn’t seem to have improved sales (quite the opposite, in fact), which means that the minimal look doesn’t really cut any ice with the buying public. I have a feeling that the muted palette, minimalistic feel and grungy look just doesn’t work the way I had anticipated. Sometimes louder is better.
So I have decided to have another go at it (just because I can). I’ve gone slicker, played up the guns ‘n gambling angle more, and brightened the palette considerably. I’m hoping this will at least get casual Amazon viewers to give my work a closer look.
Let me know what you all think, ta! Obviously it needs a few tweaks here and there, but I’m just trying to gauge opinion here.
