Here is what I have so far, but remember that this is just my basic outline and I am far from done. Please help me decide on colors, and tell me how you like it so far.
With colors, I have decided to color the dragon a deep maroonish-red, but am still unsure about the stomach scales and the webbing of the wings.
Mr. Gifford, I need to know the size of the cover art that we are choosing. Are we doing a full cover picture, a medium-sized one in the middle, or a large one taking up almost the entire bottom half?

I’m leaning towards either a full cover picture or a medium-sized one. You have the printout…is there one you like? So far, I like 1 and 3.
A thought…did you see our last cover? The previous artist incorporated the names of everyone contributing to the book into the cover. I wonder if you could streak everyone’s names behind the dragon…? I’m not sure how that would look. I just thought it might be cool.
I like it! To me it looks like the head is a little too small but I like it otherwise! 🙂
I think you should do a gold is colored underbelly if you are doing marron. I know that saying that is cheesey but I think it would look good!
Stop by my room this week, or just write up something for the dedication and back cover. I have to submit that by FRIDAY!
Also, whatever colors you choose, I have to choose colors to go with it on the cover for the text. Or, I could just go with Black. Oh, I also have to choose the color for the back of the book. It should probably match your art as well.
Words in background: A good legible font is the most important thing. A block text is probably easiest to read. Size…whatever works for your picture. It depends on your creative choices: strings of names covering the entire background and repeating, names in little chunks scattered in the background, names like rain, etc… I would say all black, or give each person a color and make it a rainbow of colors in the background.
Looks cool. Don’t ask me about color combos. I’d just mess it up.
I could that and that would be so awesome! I’m sizing it for the full cover one. Does that sound good?
All right…I’ll start working on it then. For the words in the background, what color, font, and size should I use?
