Cover Concept Contest: Vote for your Favorite Cover

This is a book cover design I have been working on recently which will be a movie poster as well. Most of the book cover designs closely follow my clients vision for the manuscript.

I have to say that I am biased and prefer my original illustration which was an abstract of a man walking out of the desert with the sun behind him. I think that as a book cover it catches the viewer off guard and draws them in with the line-work moving in toward the sun. I think it is a unique book cover illustration that would stand out from the crowd while cleverly representing the story.

Whichever book cover design you choose, please also let me know what you think of the book cover illustration in the comments below

Remember that these are just book cover concepts, so nothing is set in stone and they look rough around the edges. Also the quality is not as fine or detailed as a finished work would be. I appreciate you taking the time to vote because your decision helps me to take a step back and look at the book cover designs from a different perspective.

Thank You
