My story is called Got Guts? and here is the cover:
The title is written in a bloody gutty font, which totally reflects the theme of the story. It’s a serial killer story. And it totally revolves around guts, both literally and metaphorically. Metaphorically as in bravery.
There are 2 guys on the cover; the left one is the serial killer Duke, and the right one is the protagonist Kevin.
The left picture is darker than the right one and has a shadow on it. It almost seems like the killer is lurking through the shadows. This kinda has a feeling that the left guy is a dark person too with the dark shading and his sinister face. He is wearing a black leather jacket which is Duke’s favorite piece of clothing.
Whereas the right guy’s picture is bright and beautiful, almost looking like an angel there, a sad angel. This reflects the purity and innocence of the left guy. His picture reveals his chest and I really like that I chose that picture because there is a VERY creepy scene in the story where the killer rips Kevin’s shirt in half.
The blood splatter kinda looks like it’s more on the left side that implies that this person killed people. However, there is blood on the abdomen of both guys too since they both will have gut injuries in the story.
The bloody blade is placed between the two guys because a bloody fight between them will happen in the story.
It is also the same blade used when the killer demonstrated his cruel torture techniques on an unfortunate victim in front of Kevin to teach him a lesson he will never forget.
And that’s a wrap ^-^
I hope you liked the symbolism of my cover
