6x9 wrap around book cover.book will be in young adult fantasy category.Here is summary of book:Magician’s apprentice Bel along with a wise cracking wizard must journey under the shadow of darkness to try to discover how the fabric of reality has been rent, tearing open a gateway to the underworld and allowing the dead to walk among the living. Who did it and why? Was it intentional? Can they defeat them? Can they close the rift? Can a teenager learning the ways of magic and an ancient archmage long past his prime stop the darkness, close the breach and save all reality?
Almost all of book occurs outdoors in either wooded or mountanous areas and all at night (in dark). The book mainly deals with magic and not other fantasy characters such as dragons, orcs, elves etc. So I would like the front cover to have the two main characters using magic (a teenage boy of about 16 yrs old and an old wizard who is probably 500 years old). Their outfits or hair colors are not well described in the book so you can use your imagination there. I would think that a typical middle ages style look would work (the book is set around 300BC in my mind but that is not spelled out).When the characters use magic they hold a staff or a rock and it lights up bright blue or green. The mage-light is different than normaol light - more ethereal. Also the old man character has a bad scar on one cheek - you may want to shadow half his face.
In the story the boy and the wizard are traveling to a remote area where they are going to try to close the breach. The breach is a basically a doorway to the underworld (underworld in the classic Greek sense - think Odysseus). so dead people are streaming out of the underworld and walking amongst the living. The dead often fight against our heroes as they don't want to go back. So then, throughout the book they are using magic to fight these dead ghouls.
You artwork may contain pictures of real people, drawings or 3d renderings or whatever you want but note that if I have to pay extra for images then your design will not win.
This is my 3rd novel and I have had 2 previous winners from 99designs so I know there are some good artists out there!
The artist must be willing to provide me with the original PSD file(s) with all layers if he or she wins. This is invaluable to me as I tend to tweak things later such as the write ups on the back cover or sometimes other things.
Also note that I may award more than one winner if your art really strikes me. This is the first book in a series and if I really like something I may grab more than one cover for the second or third book in the series.
