Create a Fantasy book cover for the famous fantasy novel series “Elric of
Melnibone“ by Michael Moorcock.
Title (and series name): ELRIC
Subtitle: DER BLUTTHRON
Author: Michael Moorcock
"Elric" is a famous fantasy story, that was written in 1972 and that has strongly influenced fantasy literature and still does.
The main character, Elric of Melnibone, an albino with long white hair, is king of the people of Melnibone, a former mighty race that ruled the world and every other nation by their magic, weapons and dragons.
1) For the cover we are looking for a gloomy/dark an iconic/symbolic look, e.g. the weathered throne of the Melinibones in the centre of the cover. In the book the throne is made out of one huge ruby jewel but feel free to create your own vision. The throne could have symbolic carvings like dragons, bones.
But: it should not look like the "Game of Thornes" throne.
2) The Cover should have an eye-catching impressive “ELRIC”-lettering. The lettering should represent Elric, the gloomy hero, e.g. scratched steel/blade letters, the letters ingrown or overgrown with fine blue veins e.g. (because of his noble origin). Dragon-style letters are also possible.
3) This project is most importent as Michael Moorcock himself will proof the final work!
