Minna~! I am in need of your help.

I have a project/activity to do. And it's about making a magazine cover and an article about a certain topic of my choice. And I have decided to have THE 7 HOMUNCULUS as my topic.

But I'm having a hard time thing about what to do with the cover:

I'm using Corel Draw x3. I'm so sorry for the crappy screen cap, i don't have photoshop in my newly reformatted computer.

You guys do know how the cover of a magazine looks like and all those sort of catch phrases in it to WOAH the readers. I was wondering if you guys could help to add some more of it! IT COULD BE FUNNY AS HELL IF YOU WANT, I WOULD DEFINITELY LOVE IT. :3 Anything about the 7 homunculus! Like that one I've added in the screen cap.

Something like,

and uh... okay, i got nothing. XD

And also, the homunculus I've chosen as cover and the one i'll make an article of (wikipedia works everytime. lol) is KING BRADLEY OR WRATH.
And also a good catch phrase about him would also be a good help! :D

Oh yeah, anyone here got a good HQ scan of Bradley, good use for a magazine cover? This would also help! And some more photos of him?

Well... Its definitely an idea, but some things to keep in mind since you're doing some graphic design here. I notice you're borrowing the general feel of Cosmopolitan magazine. The general style they have as far as title and whatnot goes may not exactly work for your needs depending on the scope of the project.

Is this for a class of some sorts, and if it is what class is it for? Depending on how design intensive the project is it may help with just how many titles you actually need.

I didn't noticed that at first so i think you are right about the cosmopolitan since it's the only magazine i see around at home.

This is for my Computer Graphics Class. My professor didn't really specify on what kind of vibe the magazine should be. She just told us to make a magazine cover for your article and that's it.

Actually, I'm more focusing on the cover, since the content itself don't need to be a very neat one since i'm only copying the ones in wikipedia (i don't really think my professor would ever read the article since we are about 30 in the class. i'm pretty sure she won't).

Aaaah, i'm so sorry if it's a bit weird though. XD

If your spoofing a more serious magazine this may not be appropriate, but it seems like the more casual magazines always advertise some kind of countdown list or quiz. '5 easy ways to subvert YOUR government' or some such.

I'm more on the spoofing side cuz it works every time.
But it doesn't really need to be neat or something. Just as long as I can make a cover my professor wouldn't think too much about it.

(I'm about to pass this one on thursday!) and it's such a bad timing that i don't have any idea or i'm having mixed up ideas. XD
