What I would like to see is the main character, a 17 year old teen boy, dressed in bluejeans and a hoodie with the hood covering most of his face, wearing the gauntlets from the book. I want the gauntlets to be the main focus so I picture everything on the cover dark or cast in shadow except for the gauntlets the teen is wearing. The gauntlets themselves are described in the book as follows:
" The armor is beautifully crafted. The metal from which they are made is not like any metal Tim has ever seen. It has an almost crystalline look to it and a blue hue radiates off of it. The hand piece provides complete protection of the hands and fingers, unlike some of the other gauntlets Tim notices in the room that only protect the top of the hand but leave the fingers exposed. This pair is made up of several overlapping pieces that look like they would allow complete mobility of the fingers. The forearm piece, though solid, looks to be almost knit together as if the metal was made into fine thread, then woven tightly together. Tim also notices that carved in each forearm piece are several symbols."
I have two pictures in my mind for the cover but am open to anything.
First is a front view of the teen from the waste up with the hood of his hoodie covering most of his face. He has his arms crossed in front of him, showing of the gauntlets.
Second is a full view of the teen from behind with him looking back at us over his shoulder, again with his hood up covering most of his face and his body mostly just a shadowy outline. His arms are at his side, held slightly out from his body, with the gauntlets bright and vivid to grab the potential readers attention.
