First of all let me start by saying the response to my contest was way more then I expected. I had tried to find someone locally to do the cover but there were no takers. I watched a how to video on you tube and 99D was mentioned and the rest is history. Working with buzzart turned out to be very easy. If I didn't know better you would think he had read my book because the design he came up with looks like a scene right from the story. If my book does well I have ideas for 2 more covers and I know who's going to do them.
Another amazing design from B-Ro.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a cover for a fantasy novel.
The title should read as follows: Large title, Into Eden. Smaller title: Pangea - Book 1. At the bottom of the front cover should be the author's name: Frank Augustus
Titles should be a font appropriate for an epic novel and in a font that is non-proprietary.
Image: The cover should consist of two men in armor walking towards the readers, with a large black dog walking between them. The two men are both in their early 20's, both have blonde hair and blue eyes, yet one is approximately 3 inches taller than the other. They have similar features (although much of their facial features will be obscured by helmets) as they are 1/2 brothers. Their armor is as follows: each is wearing identical black uniforms with breastplates, helmets and gauntlets. The helmets have bull-horns coming out of them, and the helmets have muzzle-guards, as if they were designed for a non-human (someone with the head of a bull). The breastplates both display a prominent stylized ram-logo (but DONT make it look like a Dodge rip-off) of white and red. Each of the two men will be wearing black, red-lined capes and will have round shield and broadswords strapped to their backs. They will be walking on a stone-paved highway through a tropical jungle, although the distant background may have mountains. I would like the image on the far left to be usable for a back cover for book synopsis and author information.
I don't mind--and indeed wish to encourage--creativity, but the uniform designs should stick as close a possible to the description above as these are detailed in the book.
