I need a book cover for a mini-novel I just completed. I have a very specific idea of what I want, but I am completely open to other designs. Because of my open policy, I am providing the plot concept so that you can draw ideas from it.
A little alien girl becomes friends with a human boy, after healing his withered leg. She returns to Earth every summer to spend time with him. As they grow up and grow closer, they help each other grow and overcome weaknesses that would have otherwise been insurmountable.
The alien girl has chocolate skin, and blond hair styled into a bowl cut. In my mind's eye, she's wearing a plain sundress that billows in the summer wind (because, that is the very first memorable scene in the story). In terms of physique and face, think of Willow Smith.
600 x 800 size.
I PREFER some indication of "summer" e.g. bright skies, a sunset, the sun causing a glare behind a silhouetted figure, etc.
I would LIKE the alien girl in the cover, but this is not a necessity. I am open to more abstract designs.
The Boy MUST NOT appear in anyway. You'll notice that I did not describe him.
NO TEXT on the cover page. I can insert that myself. You will notice I have not provided a book title or author name.
Obviously, I'm open to designs. Modified stock photography or illustrations are both invited. Have fun with it. But though it's clearly a sci-fi sort of story, avoid making the design too sci-fi heavy. Simple is better.
