I am looking for covers to two books - book1 an book2. T
ALLIE STROM AND THE RING OF SOLOMON
(and book 2 is ALLIE STROM AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT)
NO stock photos, only original art work please (no pictures, just illustrations).
I want to see profiles/ examples of past work, in addition to your pitch. Preferably you pitch would fit the style of these below - Amulet is a good fit, and if there were something between this and Fireborn, that would be great. Bright colors, but looks good in a thumbnail.
I'm thinking something like these, with a 13 year old girl and boy, the girl with either a magic necklace or ring (either way), probably with magic light coming from it.
=it is a simple round necklace, a blue stone in silver. The stone turns out to be the stone from the ring of Solomon, which the main character later discovers.
For now, I'd like to see more focus on the color scheme/ layout than details (if you have a strong portfolio, I trust you can do the details). Also, see in the examples how there's no strong environment? I'd like that, or more of a mysterious environment (such as this stock photo that I don't want you to use but I'm attaching as an example).
- You also may not want to show too many details of the face, as I like to let the reader fill in the gaps. But if you must, she is 13, has light brown/blondish hair that is a bit wavy at the ends.
