I need an eye-catching front cover for my teen novel. The title is LONGFIN, the author is Marc Mason.
The ingredients of the cover must contain:
1: A giant New Zealand longfin eel that looms up (towering) over over a small 3 year old sandy haired girl who is crouching on a rock, looking into a pool of water, that is fed by a waterfall above (The eel is more friend than foe, so it's not about to eat the girl, but it looms behind her looking into the pool, just as the little girl does) In scale, the eel is 10 metres long, so MUST reflect that in the pic. The eel TOWERS over the little girl, it's head alone is twice the size of the girls. The eel is the feature of the cover so its size must reflect that. Longfin eels have a specific look so please google for some images before you start.
2. The waterfall should begin at the top right of the book cover and cascade down the right hand side, into a pool below.
3: Title and author name.
The finished cover must be of a format that will upload easily to Kindle Publishing. Also, this is set in a native New Zealand forest, so any flora should reflect so - think kauri, rimu, punga trees, ferns.
I leave you, the artist to decide colours and overall look and feel - see the photos I have added to give you some ideas - good luck!
P>S> Sorry guys n gals, made some changes after listing this last night - always a challenge when you are trying to explain just what you want when you have a picture in your mind as to how it should be. If there are any queries, please do not hesitate to ask.
PPS The winner agrees to make any minor changes (for no further cost and if required) on the completion of this contest.
Update 25/06 - Some excellent entries so far but most of you have the girl looking much older than 3 years of age. Vital that she be 2-3 and no older. Many thanks, again very impressive work. It will come down to a unique touch that sets the winner apart from the rest.
