    Thanks for the ratings! I just hope I can pull this one out. Just give me your thoughts and definitely we can use this for your cover. The type of Art i made is more of a mixed painting/digital concept to make it unique.Thanks! :)

      Loftworks: The composite of all the elements are good, but the perspective is a little odd to me.

      We designed it for impact rather than realism, I'll adjust it to be more realistic.

    Hi Abenig, i submited an illustration, not complete yet because i would like to know if this is what you are looking for....#14 the contest is almost closing....still if i have time i will improve this one. Thank you

      Yes, that's very close. You can keep the main character's face in the shadows and if there were bodies under the UNCLEAN, that would be good.

    Just for an update:
    #1 is great for a backgrounf.
    #2 is NOT what I want at all.
    #3 has some good elements, but looking for Auction to be more classy - and it doesn't have to be associated with the windows + blood/body bags. Slick way of doing the detective.

    This is looking good - if I get a few more than look like this I will definitely guarantee it.

      Moto, #1 is a great background - add in the auction + some shadowed figure for the detective looking down at a body + some of the sexual items and that'd be really good.

    if it`s a futuristic novel then the characters and background should be futuristic?

    • 4 years ago
    1. ABenig
      Contest Holder
      • 4 years ago

      Not necessarily. This is very much more of a "Blade Runner" future, not necessarily a shiny, modern future, so grunge and grime still apply. Having a couple of things that look futuristic is fine, but that's not the point of the novel - it's set in the future but is a pretty standard detective novel - likely to be the start of a series, this one is about investigating the murder of three prostitutes in a really horrible part of town.

      No flying cars needed!
