Was ist Ihre Vision?
Cover for epic Fantasy novel NEVERQUEEN! EDIT: Do not incorporate font in the illustration. I have a font that will be incorporated later. Just focus your efforts on the illustration. Note: Before getting into the 'details' I want you to be aware that I am going to go to the extreme on specifications of the characters and the setting. I believe the more information you (the designer) have, the easier you will find it to express your creativity in this project. As long as you keep this cover in the realm of classic fantasy art, I'd like to have a look at it! Feel free to darken the mood a bit if you feel it works in the illustration. Cover dimensions: 5.5 x 8.5-inches Spine width: 0.54-inches Bleed: please leave a little extra image around the edges to ensure the cover will bleed properly. FRONT COVER Book title: Neverqueen Author: Scott Appleton BACK COVER Text: To be queen was never her destiny... Arthensil City, the refuge of humanity along the Eiderveis River. Under the guidance of Lord Ostincair humanity thrives. Only select hunting parties dare venture into the deep forests along the river, for a corruption spreads from the wizard's mountains in the south to beast and creature alike. But Ostincair's men are about to make a discovery that will change the face of the river. A child long thought dead will be found, and her innocence will spread hope to two races. Reader endorsement: "Neverqueen was beyond awesome! Great plot, great characters, and great action. There was nothing more I could’ve asked for." -Joseph Ely Author bio (Also to be included on back cover): Scott Appleton is a freelance writer living in southeast Connecticut. He is the author of Swords of the Six, Offspring, and Key of Living Fire. God has blessed him with a beautiful wife and three energetic kids who love books as much as he does.

COVER IMAGE/ILLUSTRATION: Foreground: Standing on the sandy bank of a river is a human-hybrid; a young black woman 18-years-old with white feathered wings on her back. It might be cool to include a large white birch tree in the foreground, too. In the river are wee mermaids (versions of a mermaid that are only about 2 to 3-feet-long and have a small dorsal fin on their back. They are colorful, some purple, some green, etc.). IMPORTANT NOTE: If the mermaids' colors are shown in the illustration the colors should be subtle. We do not want vibrant or neon mermaids. (-; The black girl's hair is white, wavy, and long enough to touch her lower back. She is partially turned so that she faces away from us, looking into the distance. She is wearing a leather jacket and leather trousers and a dagger is sheathed on her arm. She is holding a crown in her hand. The crown is made of two twisting metal vines, one of white gold and one of yellow gold, and a large ruby is set in its face. She should be a beautiful individual with softer and finer, rather than larger features. The wee mermaids are playful and friendly. You can feel free to vary the level of detail in order to make sure the winged humanoid is prominent so that she is not washed out by the swath of scenery. Background: A river approximately 20 to 30-feet wide wends its way between yellow-sand shores. In the distance the dark peaks of three mountains are visible (no snow on these mountains). Long patches of grass run the length between the river and the surrounding forests. Many of the trees have thick trunks as if the forest is older. If you feel like getting into extra detail in your illustration, here are some suggestions: Some of the trees can be white birches as those do figure in the story. There can be wildflowers. Weather: Bright and sunny afternoon. BACK COVER IMAGE/ILLUSTRATION IDEA: After reviewing some of the questions I thought I'd add an idea for those of you who would like to incorporate an illustration onto the back cover. Please note, however, that I'm not in love with the idea of having a back cover illustration. These tend to make the back cover copy too busy. But if you want to play around with that option I'm open to being wowed by the unexpected. (-: Scenery would work best, I think. This is a heavily forested area. Incorporate white birch trees and oak trees, maybe some forest underbrush and bushes. But the focus of the back cover needs to be the text. Don't let any illustrating in this area wash out the legibility of the back cover copy.
This book is the start of a new epic fantasy series targeting Young Adult readers. I love rich detail in original illustrations. Please submit original artwork only. No photo manipulations or stock photos. Only original paintings will please my fantasy fans. Inclusions of photos or photo manipulations will eliminate a piece from the contest. Here are some art pieces that I like that have similar feels to what I'm looking for in this Neverqueen piece: http://www.deviantart.com/print/9575240/ http://kerembeyit.deviantart.com/art/Flight-of-the-Dragon-Kyn-182049205 I have attached images of my previous covers as well as the logo for the publishing company.
