What's your vision?
****UPDATE**** I just wanted to add a little extra info to help. First of all, I have never put a face on my book covers, because I want readers to come up with their own idea of the characters. So this is a difficult challenge for me alone to find the right cover to reveal just enough of the character, but not too much. The character also has blonde hair, a mid-twenties female, but with emerald green iris'. She is out for vengeance, but I don't want her face to look evil or menacing. To help shield her appearance, she wearing a black cloak with a crimson velvet interior. You can conceal her face some with the "Hood" of the cloak on it. She is not wearing in head pieces at all. The theme would be 1700-1800's England. You all have presented such amazing work and I can't thank you enough. Thank you I'm looking to have the fourth book in my series designed to match the "series" font (Ancient Guardians font pictures of the other three books will be attached so you can design the book to follow the same as the others on where fonts are and how the covers can match for it being part of a series. The title will be Ancient Guardians: The Reckoning (The Reckoning name, I would like to have a really unique font that can follow in suit what the meaning of the word is, yet very eye catching.) I'm really hoping to go with a black, white and red theme. On the cover (I'm attaching an image of a female warriors face. I'm using this as an example not because I really want to use this image, but if I can't, I want only this much of the 'female warrior's face' showing as the cover. I would like it in black and white, but with the females eyes a glistening, emerald green. The font I would like in red. Blending the front cover to the back, I am posting images of galaxies, where I'd like red in the color (so it will match with the front. On the back I will attach the ISBN code. I would also like it to match the way the previous cover designer laid out the back of the books on the others. The spine to match as well. As for the object in the back of the book that the description will be written around (Like the back covers of the other books, (The skeleton key, the sword, and stone) For this object I believe a silver arrow icon would work, or a dagger. Whichever you think would match a group of warriors going to war and earth being destroyed. This is a sci-fi fantasy romance Temporary Book Description: (Bold and Centered)A menacing dark force awaits and he will not stop at nothing until he possesses the one thing to give him ultimate power: The Stone (Bold and Centered) Emperor Navarre has been rescued, but it came at a price. A high price! The greatest threat ever known to the guardians has entered the galaxy of Earth and the guardians will stop at nothing to capture and destroy him. With Levi’s memory loss, a dark being that seeks ultimate power and is constantly one step ahead of the skilled guardians; the fate of Earth, all dimensions and their inhabitants are hanging in the balance. In this gripping final installment of the multi-award winning novel series: Ancient Guardians, readers will be immersed in every page as a whirlwind of events take place leaving the guardians no other choice but to trust the one being that they have vowed to protect for generations. The Key. Will Reece Bryant and the guardians be defeated by the greatest enemy they have ever faced? Find out NOW!
Right now, I am still working on the back of the book description and I will post that or give it to the winning designer when the cover art is complete. For you to have something to work with now, I will post here some wording to write in, until the final description is done. I wish all of you the best and I hate doing these contests because you're all so very talented and work hard to bring a beautiful and outstanding cover for me and my readers. Also on the top (Above the title Ancient Guardians, you can write "Multi-Award Winning Series" (In the same font and color of the Author name "S.L. Morgan" at the bottom. Again, please follow the design of the previous three so the books match in the set, even thought they are different in color and objects. Thank you.
