I am needing front and back cover art for my novel "Eville’s Most Wanted", the second in the series. This will be for both an e-book edition as well as a physical paperback.
My idea is to have a police lineup (think of the poster for the film The Usual Suspects http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped…_ver1.jpg), except that you can only see the four characters in the lineup from the waist down. The book’s title would obscure all imagery above the waistline.
1). The leftmost character is Serene Necrosia, and she is to wear a slinky, red-sequined dress sporting a long slit on one side, and matching red high heels. She’s a bony, thin, pale woman, so she shouldn’t appear sexy, but more like a living corpse trying to pass off a classy cocktail dress.
2). To the right of Serene is Alex, the lead character. He’s a normal guy, and should be wearing plain blue jeans and tennis shoes. His clothes should be very dirty, however, stained and torn.
3). Next is Moody the hunchback. She’s much shorter than the human characters to her left, so you should see more of her torso. Her build is stockier, more like a dwarf, with thick arms (crossed) and slightly bowed legs. Her pants will have a camouflage print, and her shirt should be dirty as well.
4). Lastly, on the far right is Marco the brain, who was featured on the front of book one. He should be resting in a square tank filled with water.
I would like the lighting and mood to retain the feel from the first book, and the “Eville” logo is to be retained as well. Additionally, I’d like to see a smattering of random bullet holes in the police lineup (beside the characters, between their legs, etc), along with a few empty bullet shells resting by their feet and goblets of green ooze here and there (they can be standing in it).
You can get a good idea of my work from my website http://www.HolandPeterson.com, where I have sample chapters.
