I'm currently A/B testing this one. But without telling you ANYTHING about this thumbnail (trying to use no text) what do you think this thumbnail is about? what is it alluding to?Augmented allosaurus2020.jpg

A dinosaur searching/looking for something (slightly menacing)because of the eye however not aggressive
Not creeping but walking through the forest
(remember I am looking at this like as a layman) not as a person who is familiar with dinosaurs or your channel. I will now go over there and have a look and laugh at my impression:rolleyes:

#I have had a look at your channel now and have come back to the picture this is the first time I have noticed the pencil!!! So ......ignore my comment.

To me it says "how to draw a dinosaur with a pencil" or "how to make a dinosaur sketch starting with a pencil".

This problem with this thumbnail is the concept I've tried to get across which is tough graphically :p I'm not surprised by your first impressions. I'm A/B testing it at the moment so I'll see if it at least gets clicks :p but it's about drawing dinosaurs INTO real photos. I haven't seen it done too often so thought it would be a cool idea for videos, but very tough to portray as a thumbnail :)

Thanks for the feedback :) I may need to re-introduce SOME text for context after the test :)

To me it says "how to draw a dinosaur with a pencil" or "how to make a dinosaur sketch starting with a pencil".
Close, that's half the story. I was hoping the photo behind, looking like a polaroid photo under the dinosaur, would make it look like I was drawing a dinosaur over a photo. So it's half there :) I may have to find a way of using some text to explain it further maybe. Thaks for the feedback :)

I still have 7 cycles left, but the results are looking interesting so far (for those of you who are interested in how A/B works and how it looks during the process of testing)

Well.. as might already know .. I did not read any of the comments. As soon as I looked at the pic, I loved it.

It's about a dinosaur. Looking / searching in he forest. ok . Then there is pencil, so it tells that the creator explains how to make that image in the video.
