Graphic Showcase #1

Well, here’s something new I’m trying out… a graphics showcase. Unless you’ve come from my Wattpad, you probably don’t know that I graphic design for fun, and I take requests on Wattpad. I’ve decided to share a few of them here with you.

Shadow Thieves


The swirls and castle-y things were separate images that I blended in. I like the stained glass effect on the text. But I just realized that I, being an absolute idiot, spelled ‘thieves’ wrong. WHAI?!?! Luckily, I didn’t get points taken off for it, so. 🙂

These were the requirements that I was to follow:

Title: Shadow Thieves
Author: Emily Zhang and your watermark
Genre: Fantasy
Subtitle: Humanity is being devoured.
Requirements: raven, dark, enchanting, misty, girl

Everything is Blue

So for this we had to use a song we were assigned as inspo… My song was Colors by Halsey which I just looove. So I had the PNG of Halsey with the awesome hair, then I desaturated just her face. The I used splatter brushes and erased and added color to the cover. I did the same with the text. I didn’t want EVERYTHING to be blue (contrary to the title) so I added some baby pink. 🙂 I do not know the result of this round at the moment. Maybe I’ll add an update when I do?

Title: must be related to song
Author: GraphicKingdomCC and something that says you made the cover
Theme: make it about your song

Fun Fact: I’m actually a part of GraphicKingdom (AND part of their competition– I’m just not allowed to access that part of the account), so go over there and show us some love. 🙂 Pwease?

Desktop Wallpaper

I’m very proud of this one, actually. I guess the placement of the planets could be a bit better, but all in all, it’s okay. If you want, I’ll share the link to the premade version. Just be sure to tell me before.

Author: League of Graphics and our username very small
Title: no text is allowed apart from author
Dimensions: 1920 x 1080
Genre: any
Must Have: a dark mood, must be manipulated and ONE object as the
main focus; it can not be a celebrity

Looking at it now (last December… ;)), I’m wondering if I followed the requirements as well as I should have… Ah well. I’ll update you on the results soon!

Well, there you have it. My first graphic showcase… thoughts? If you have questions, I’m free to answer them. 🙂 If you want to see more of my work, check out my cover shop @TheHeraEra on Wattpad.
