Webnovel Book Cover for ‘Villains are Destined to Die’
Posted 3 weeks ago and submitted by Cindy Tran | Share link: http://illo.cc/97667



Based on a Korean webnovel by Gyeoeul Kwon involving a regular college student becoming stuck inside a dating sim game where she becomes the main antagonist “Penelope Eckhart” and must try to survive in a world where everyone despises her. The heroine and Penelope’s lives share many similarities, and therefore reflect each other, which I show with the handheld mirror. For the graphic design, I was deeply inspired by the options and game elements present in real life games like the one in the novel.

The back cover shows how the heroine’s only way to survive the game is to try to gain relationship points with the various male protagonists in the game. I used pink flowers and petals as a motif because Penelope is scorned for having hair that is red rather than pink. This is due to the fact that her main obstacle is the game’s female protagonist Yvonne, who has distinct pink hair.

This is a faux book cover and unaffiliated with the novel or original author.
