Necesidades de diseño
I'm looking for a cover with the title at the top and author name at the bottom and the main body of the cover should be a painting/sketch of Lolo Boy squatting on his haunches with his spear in front of him, broken tip high in the air above his head, and bottom of the wooden spear shaft resting on the ground. Lolo is facing to the right. He is squatting on dark lava rock that forms the ground. There is a deep lush jungle behind him and a dark metallic tower surrounded by a metal fence in front of him (the right of the visual field). Lolo's face should be mostly hidden because of the direction he's looking. Just his right cheek is visible as he stares at the dark tower. He is a 14 year old boy/man with a slight muscular build (he's a young hunter/warrior) and shoulder length shaggy black hair with dark tanned (Hawaiian) skin). He is wearing a small loin cloth and sandals and nothing else.
The font(s) should be hand sketched also and could incorporate some Hawaiian theme(s).
This is adult fiction so it is NOT aimed at kids (despite the "boy" in the title).
Lo que debe evitarse
No stock imagery. This needs to be a hand painted or sketched design, including the fonts.
I've attached the title short story, which is one of about ten short stories in this book collection
The man on the left in the foreground has the kind of squatting pose Lolo uses. This is a common kind of relaxed position in indigenous cultures when waiting
VERY rough image showing preferred layout. Left side is deep dark jungle. Right side is strange dark tower. Foreground is black lava cliffs and ocean.
here's the kind of jungle I'm looking for, but it should be exaggerated and dramatized (darker, more vines, etc.)
here's a model for the cliffs and waves in the foreground
here's some more Hawaii jungle
this is the kind of overhanging tree I want to see curving over Lolo Boy
here's more pics of Hawaiian jungle, including large vines and leaves
this is a monstera vine climbing a tree.
another sketch showing more clearly the layout
ti leaf loin cloth/skirt that Lolo is wearing
