'Heaven's Return' by Rhabi Rites (@playwright42) ~ cover art and design

I've read more than once that it's 'amateur' to use only three or four colors, (primary colors at that) mainly because it's easy to go 'flat'. However, I like the dramatic contrast, and if shadows, reflections, and highlights are used effectively, it works, and thankfully, my clients think so, too.




Heaven grew up asking questions about who she was because everyone thought she had been adopted. Her search led her down a road of promiscuity and she thought she'd found her purpose. This road came to an abrupt end when the love of her life, Sam, left her, alone and pregnant. Hitting bottom Heaven knew she needed to find solace and thought she had when she gave her life to Christ. 




She didn't stop being irresistible to men and her beauty was hypnotizing but she decided to live this life with Christ was what she missed all those years until...he appeared. Sam was back, and he was even more pleasant to her eyes. His smell, his walk, those lips...she then realized that her desire for him was more intense and her love, deeper. She wanted to continue living a Christ-like life, but her passion wanted him...more.
