Contest Brief

I'm looking for a talented digital illustrator to design a front cover for an eBook that I have upcoming in the near future.
The novel is an Epic Fantasy (with elements of Dark Fantasy) and I would preferably like people who believe they are good are invoking a certain mood and atmosphere within pieces, as I want the cover to reflect the dark atmosphere of most of the book.
Looking for people who are ideally experienced/skilled with work with Fantasy and Sci-Fi illustration/book cover design.
I've attached a pretty rough sketch with directions for what I'd ideally want my cover to look like. Would prefer digital drawing/illustration to graphic design :)

Thank you in advance!
Phil

    Hi. I would love to try this although I have other project now that I must finish. Question...Is hand drawn/painted ok and then digitized and slightly tewaked for the layout of the cover?

      Sure, as long as it keeps to the same atmosphere/mood of the intended cover then that's fine :)

    What are the dimensions you want for the cover?

    • 1 year ago

      Preferably 1563 x 2500 so that it would be ideal for self-publishing through websites and then Amazon etc. but anything around that size is acceptable :)
