Studio Smexy Saturdays: Cover Comparison + Giveaway (International)

A lot goes into the making of a cover. It just doesn't come out all purty and completely abtastic. Okay, it's probably totally abtastic to begin with thanks to the cut model who has worked hard to keep his body in shape and keep us drooling at the cover long after we're done reading it. It takes a whole village to make an eye-catching cover that will make you pick it up just because the colors pop or the abs just yell your name. (You know what we're talking about. Uh huh, keep telling yourself that it doesn't...) Today we're sharing side-by-side comparisons of the unedited image with the final cover.

A note from Jenn: There's a lot that goes into making a cover. Models, makeup artists, costumers, directors, photographers, and that's just to get the image. Then that image is off to the designer to make even MORE magic happen. What happens between the two is absolutely amazing and I can't wait to see the results. Every time I have an image purchase come through I get chills. I LOVE seeing what artists can do with my work.

So we thought we'd share a post of nothing but the comparisons. Really they highlight the work the designers do, but it gives you a chance to see the raw image as well. Because sometimes you just don't know how much has happened between step A and step Z.
