I need a cover that transmits a connection between Amy and Eli, and their reliance on each other amidst the perils of an apocalyptic world. Maybe have them poised to fight along side each other. Eli's vampire fangs should be noticeable and his katars (bladed weapons) should be drawn, bloodstained and held in an attack position. Amy should be handling one of her guns. Besides featuring Amy and Eli, the illustration should also include gory visuals of what chompers are like and convey how dangerous they are, especially when there is a horde of them. If possible, I'd like for power armored soldiers and Sig should be included but not prominent. The same thing for Lygia, if she can be incorporated in a way that suggests a love triangle between her, Eli and Amy. The challenge is to create an image that undoubtedly says action-packed zombie apocalypse. And don't forget, gore is good. Chompers devour people until they are all but bones in a puddle of blood. And they don't die unless they receive severe head trauma; decapitation eventually works too, so feel free to add severed heads if it helps bring the image together. The following are more detailed descriptions of the characters.
* AMY -- 18 years old. Her native American features are strongest, but she also has high cheekbones and hazel eyes. Slim frame, subtle curves. Jet black hair. Skin like a cinnamon colour. She's cute and hot tempered. Her favorite weapon is a 30-30 rifle, but is also good with a shotgun and Beretta 9mm.
* ELI -- Looks 20 years old. He has an athletic build with lean muscles. He has unkempt curly brown hair. The stubble on his face gives him a gritty look. He wears T-shirts, jeans, cowboy boots, wrap around sunglasses, and sometimes a black cowboy hat. IMPORTANT: Eli wears a double-sided shoulder holster that houses 2 black Desert Eagle handguns on each side. He also has two katars; a sheath for each is strapped on either of his thighs. Each katar has a 9" blade and the H-shaped handles cover half of his forearm.
* CHOMPERS -- They are described as having wild hair, dirty skin, grimy clothes. There is dried blood staining their face and necks. Painful hunger in their eyes. Chompers are like zombies but they do not show signs of decay. However, some chompers should be severely mangled or mutilated. I would like at least one of them to have skin torn from part of its face, exposing teeth and muscle tissue. Chompers are mindless but some instinctively use whatever they get their hands on to bludgeon their meals if they have to.
* ARMORED SOLDIERS -- Their power armor resembles Iron Man, but painted black. The armor has machine guns built into the right arm and a harpoon launcher in the left. Some armored soldiers also carry a electrocution net launcher that looks like small version rocket launchers.
* Lygia -- Redhead. Curvy figure. She usually has a serious demeanor but she was born at the height of the Roman Empire, and she's practically vampire royalty, so try to give her a goddess-like appearance.
* SIG -- Nordic features. Blonde hair only a couple inches long. Tall and muscular. He hates the armored soldiers with a passion, particularly the leader of their squad.
