Pirate Book Cover:





Alright guys here are some Thumbs for my first assignment in Paynes class. He told me to do a historically accurate pirate book cover for any Real pirate in history. I picked Black beard! These are the thumbs that made the cut out of 23 total. Let me know which gets your vote. I think I am favoring the one with everyone in the captains quarters...That one would have moon light to the left and lamp light on the right. Sounds like fun to me...Keep in mind the wide comps are wrap around book covers so the composition the right has to be strong on its own.

I like the first one too. Try to think of dynamic lighting. A lamp on the table would make for some great drama on the faces...

I'm for the first one. A lot of nautical books have the sea and a pirate ship on the front, like master and commander. I think you should put the backs of some pirates in the fore ground rather than the front of that table.

Now that you've got some tone on these I'm liking them more. I'd say the most compelling would be first or second. Although I feel like the back of the first idea is pretty bland and could be spiced up more.
