It's elegant, but a bit too plain and generic. I prefer cleaner images rather than vague and watermark style pictures.
I like the foreboding and ominous use of dark colours and prominant text. The images draw the eye but are not cluttered.
I don't like the font, but I do like how the subtitle is discreet under the title.
I like the abstract take, it makes me wonder what the book is about and if the images mean anything.
I don't like the retro font, or how sparse the text is.
I like how the city is a prominant focal point of the cover, but the looming shadowy face also draw the eye and imply a shady influence in the book.
I also like the clear and crisp way the text is laid out.
I like that its the landscape that is the focus rather than a figure or person, and again I like how clear the text is.

Necesidades de diseño
Core idea - An erupting volcano in a dark setting, with superimposed golden eyes looking out of the clouds. The climax of the book occurs beneath an eruption, and the antagonist is a shape-shifting monster distinguished by his golden animal-like eyes.
Description requested - The creature is a furred humanoid with a mixture of beast-like traits, similar to classic depictions of werewolves but not specifically wolf-like. It is capable of assuming human or animal shapes, but it's eyes don't change, remaining unnaturally golden.
(This is the first of a trilogy, and I want prominant eyes to be a unifying theme of the covers)
The protagonist uses fire magic, though I'm not sure how this could be used without making the cover cluttered. I would be interested to see if a designer could use fire in an elegant way.
Text - An angular and sharp font, as the book is set in a feudal period. Placement of the text to designer's suggestion, though I'd like the tagline to be quite prominant, with the subtitle being quite discreet under the title.
File format must be a JPEG file and at least 25000 pixels on the longest side with a height/width ratio of 1.6
Lo que debe evitarse
Anything cartoonish or too modern, as well as any images of technology beyond the medieval times.
