Job Description- Create a wrap-around book cover for a science fiction/space opera novel.
1- 6x9" wrap-around cover
Book Information- "Acheron: Demons of the Hallowed Dome" by C. F. Sheridan
Cover Description- The novel is a fun and fast paced science fiction/space opera much like the recent movie Guardians of the Galaxy. There are some great posters i like that i have uploaded to give an idea of the desired style. I would like the colors to be in the blue, grey, silver range with a few brighter flares here and there. To be clear, the retro, flat 2D image, like the uploaded images, are what I'm looking for.
I would like the main character, 28-year-old special forces captain with dirty-blonde hair, to be staring up at the stars (maybe night vision goggles on his head) much like Star Lord is on the uploaded poster. I would like a few other special forces soldiers in full gear shown in silhouette, rifles on shoulders.
I would like the main female character, 23-year-old petite Italian with shoulder length black hair, to be shown in the background. Perhaps use some lighter colors to highlight, but she needs to appear plain and as if she has been a captive for over a year. Beautiful but simple.
In the starfield above, I would like a pair of menacing solid, jet-black eyes looking foward. Not set on that, designer CAN play with that a bit and surprise me.
Please place the book title at the top and the author name at the bottom.
-Layout 6"x9" wrap-around cover, minimum 300 DPI as this will be used for both e-publishing and print.
-Back Cover Description- I would like the eight-pointed star in the uploaded image used, a starfield, not really set on design. Surprise me.
