A book cover for a serialized dark medieval fantasy series. Think
X-Men meets GRRM. I would prefer the cover to be based on character.
There is an assassin who can turn into shadow, and he is hunting a
1. a man who can turn anything he touches into smoke (young,
2. a man who can manipulate gravity (young, green-eyed)
3. a middle-aged man who can enhance the powers of anyone he touches.
(he has a beard)
Basic concept: The Myrson Empire is on the verge of war with
neighboring Yrid. The heroes (the three men listed above) are
specialized mercenaries from Yrid sent to destabilize the Myrson
Empire. The assassin is a member of the Empire, and he is charged
with hunting them down. There is a rock that makes a repeat
the series--Necrolite. White and rough, it saps away powers of anyone
who touches it. It's sort of like a white kryptonite for Superman. If
you want to feature the rock as more important on the cover than any
of the characters, I am open to that idea.
If you want to incorporate setting, many of the episodes take place in
various cities (medieval fantasyish). Other than that, I would like
the cover to present a dark feeling and suggest something about the
magic. Nothing horror or erotic please :)
The size of the book is 6x9 and I would like it to be 300 dpi. I have
also put a link to a stock photo that I had considered using for my
book cover (if only my design skills were not so abysmal :)
