Art Book Cover March Challenge - WIP
The Knight in Rusty Armor... I wrote The King in Rusty Armor on my previous post.
I'm gonna take a break! I need to sleep on these palettes. Yellow maybe?
I think the piece is about 4-5 hours away, thank you all for keeping up!
@josegalue25 I like the yellow and also the one in the upper right.

@josegalue25 I don't know the story, so I'm just going on what I can see. I reckon if you're going for this yin/yang splitting of the cover style, the title looks like it's been plonked on top. The rest of the cover has a harmony to it. I'd like to see the title more involved in what's going on around it. Invite it in to become a part of the rest of the cover.

I like the yellow one also the most and as other have said, I would try to change the font style. You have really great concept.

Top right would be my choise... title is better this way... now the rest of your illustration isn’t pushed in by the text anymore...
Hi everybody, I've read that some of you haven't read the book.
I read the book many years ago, but I found this summary that is pretty good.
Great story about family, self-help and hard challenges. Highly recommended!
Below my take so far on this cover. I'm almost done but I'm gonna take a break.
For those of you who like to skip until the end, here is part of the whole process and final piece.

@josegalue25 It's great to follow-along on your work-in-progress.
I really like the border on the left half-I think it really reflects the half-ness of the Knight-that he is half-armor. The border is half-way around the book (in case I wasn't very articulate).
I like the palette in the lower left with the green. To my taste, it is a little more regal than the others which feel more contemporary and more earthy.
