Cover art samples

I’m redoing the cover art for Let the Dragon Wake. Here’s a trial version, which ended up looking more like romance-genre than high fantasy:

Let the Dragon Wake, somewhat romance-like cover art

It also looks cursory. That’s just a style choice; plain can be good; but professional covers for fantasy shouldn’t look cursory. I like the color palette, though.

And here’s the version I’ll probably go with, which has more of a genre-fantasy flavor (and the text pops more!):
