I'm looking for a heartfelt and unique cover design for my fantasy novell. It is a funny and dramatic book with some tragic parts.
Concerning the motive I am open.
Here is some information about main characters and scenery
- A young nurse from our world who turns out to be a powerful magician (23 years old, long dark brown hair, gentle bright blue eyes (important!), slim, character: loving), she could wear a nurse's overcoat and a medieval cape over it
- a young male magician wearing a black mask that hides his whole face (brave, blond hair, bright green eyes, grim look)
- An old man in a wheelchair (typical retiree in brown pullover and shivering trousers, skinny body, long fine white hair, well shaved lined face, gray eyes, dull vampire teeth, character: bourgeoise).
Partly our world (old man's apartment)
Partly Magician World: Medieval, War: Forest State (Green Flag with a Silver Eagle) vs. Mountain State (blue flag with a crooked, white lizard), dragons, lizards with rifles, huge ravens, mages in cloaks.
potential backgrounds: small flying islands full of trees and greenery; a silent, silvery lake full of green islands; a black gorge with blue shimmer; a huge vertical silver crack in the sky from the ground to the clouds (in the magician world); young lime tree (our world)
Topics: friendship, love, war, death, loyalty.
Style: It should be colorful or made with warm and friendly colors with some interesting contrasts. Slight stylization would be alright. The cover should look magical and heartfelt. The humor may shine through but not too much.
I send you an illustration I made (unfortunately it looks too childish) and an example cover I like pretty much. But I am open to other ideas, too.
