I just spend a few hours re-texturing the main model featured in the book cover of an existing ebook for iOS and Android.
The book is about the story of a programmer, his gamer friend, their afterlife, incarnations and the concept of God in the grand scheme of things.
However, before I actually made the change, changing an existing book cover is quite a drastic move, once I have decided to use these new textures, then further work will have to be done to re-render backdrops, new camera angle experimentations, post processes and not to mention the whole re-publishing she-bang which is a lot of drama so I want to make sure I really want to go through with this, hence I would like to get some constructive feedback.
Which version do you find to be more aesthetically pleasing ?
Or should I just leave it as it is ?
