This one is likely going to require plenty of back and forth, so for reference, here's my email address right off the bat - firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the quickest and easiest way to reach me.
Okay, so I'm needing two things, primarily a front cover for a paperback novel I have planned, but also if possible, a Facebook/Twitter cover to accompany it.
This is where it becomes slightly tricky - I need this to either be photo-manipulated from previous works I've had designed for me BUT I would rather the characters I'm needing illustrated to be redrawn by the individual artist to be more dark, grungy, a little bit anime-ish, but like Death Note for reference - a bit rough around the edges. However, this doesn't mean I'll discount edits that use the previous images as templates - it's all about what looks best!
The paperback I'm needing is for an anthology of three of my previous works - 45 Days, Descent Into Madness and When Justice Comes Calling. I will attach front covers for the three works, but most importantly, artwork designed previously also, so you have an idea of how the characters look.
45 Days is about a ruthless hitman Vincent Williams (the character in the black suit and black gloves, red tie), set in an undated futuristic rundown London, who is the troubled and tortured soul, doing an evil Dictator's bidding. Descent Into Madness tells the story of one of his victim's Dean Moxley (the psychotic character with the evil grin, wild blonde hair and knife in hand), and his fall from rebellion leader to working for the Dictator. When Justice Comes Calling brings the trilogy full circle, with the main character David Sheffield (the character with the brown hair and stubble, and brown overcoat), a rookie cop tasked with working with a near-retired Vincent Williams to capture Dean Moxley - only Sheffield doesn't know of Vincent's past history or the shady going-ons in government.
I need the front cover to clearly outline the three lead characters - Vincent Williams, Dean Moxley and David Sheffield. I'm free for you guys to go crazy with ideas, concepts. I just need on there somewhere my name William Powell, and "The Justice Saga - 45 Days, Descent Into Madness, When Justice Comes Calling" somewhere too. I want it to be dark and grungy, but with good use of colour so it stands out, especially if you're happy to work on a Facebook/Twitter variant.
