Novel taking place in France
What's your vision?
Would like a book cover with the French flag on the front. The flag should be blowing in the wind and not static and the flag should stretch from left to right across the cover. On top of the flag should be the outline of France in black and filled in with black. There should be a golden Christian cross over France. Behind the flag, above, and below the flag, I would like some type of image. In the example, I used a recent volcanic explosion in Japan with lava and lightning. I would like similar 'fire and brimstone' imagery with lighting, volcanoes, comets, fire, etc.. being the motif behind the flag. Please use this general framework, but PLEASE use artistic license to make something more awesome. Blending the flag with the other elements looks quite good, so the flag does not have to be a perfect rectangle. Thanks.

Excellent job, I was honestly shocked. Like he plucked it from my first chapter, and painted it onto the cover.
Completely exceeded my expectations!
