I'm looking for a cover design for a book, 1563x2500 pixels for the front cover - winning designs will incorporate a full physical cover (front, spine, and back) . I would like the book to incorporate the following elements:
Title of the book: World's Edge
My name: Ryan Kirk
Mood: The book is somewhat dark, so I'd prefer cooler colors that are still easily viewable in thumbnail.
Elements: The book is about nightblades, who are a samurai/ninja class of warrior. They wear black/dark robes and have no armor. They possess the "sense" which allows them to anticipate moves moments before they happen. Japanese swordsmanship is also a key element. This book follows two main characters, a young man and woman who are nightblades. There are two main settings of the book - one part happens on an island which is a tall, nearly inaccessible plateau sticking out of the ocean. The second part happens in wide open prairie. All events are occuring in a backdrop of a country torn apart by a war. (To be clear, I'm not expecting all of the above elements are present in the cover - I just want to be descriptive of the subject matter).
The first main character of the book is a young male, 20, nondescript, average height, and dark hair. - Back views or silhouettes would be fine.
The second main character is a young female, 19, also of average height with dark hair. She's written to be attractive, but she's a warrior first.
