Kilpailun tehtävänanto

I'm looking for three book covers for fantasy novels.

The three are the beginnings of a series, and I am likely to award all three covers to one designer.

There will be further covers in this series and others, so more work is possible.

Please try to follow the specification.

All details are provided in the attached file: [url removed, login to view]

I will provide feedback on a daily basis or better to all entries. Please feel free to ask any questions that occur.

    You have all made it difficult for me - which is good. There are many covers here that I would be pleased to have on my books, and that makes the decision very hard. It may take a couple of days. Be assured that I will struggling with this over the next few days and will come back before the weekend. I hate to disappoint any of you - you have all been responsive and displayed considerable talent. Forgive me for making you wait a few days more.

    Just a word of explanation for you all. If I rate you three stars it means I see something promising. Four stars means I could use the covers as they are. In the last week I'll hand out five stars to those I'm seriously torn between. As always the standard of work here is very high, and I'm delighted to have the chance to work with so many talented people.

    Hi, please clarify the badge and sword thing for the 2nd book cover. This is the same sword as shown in the first cover and the badge will be shown separately, or it will be kind of this"http://www.oakleafmilitaria.com/images/095so6-1.jpg"

      It's not the same sword. The symbolism is the oak leaf for trust and the sword for enforcement. The lawkeepers are a little like mediaeval police, and this is their badge, so sort of similar to that image, but more like a sword laid on top of an oak leaf.

      You may want to submit one early entry to see how much I like it, so that any changes I ask for will go into the other two with less work. Just a thought.

    Hi, I just wanted to know that, what is the significance of that sword in your story? Then I can visualize it in much better way.

      The sword is magical - it is the weapon that enables the main character to defeat his enemy. The blade is black because it absorbs all energy, including magic.

      I couldn't get the second URL to work, but the first probably was a little too pretty, if you know what I mean. More trees and mountains (preferably snow capped) required :-)

    I need some clarifications,
    1. What will be back cover of the book 3? Is it going to be the continuation of “The stormy seascape” or something else?
    2. In which time period this total story is happening? Like in Which age? If you can make us clear on that, then it will give an idea of how will be the landscape and city building style.
    3. Is this girl in book 3 a pirate?
    4. And also can you provide some sample images to understand the mood of the graphics you like in your books. I am getting a “Lord of the ring” kind of style after reading your description.

      1. Back cover of book 3 should be ornamented somehow. It should be very similar in style and colour to book 1. They are linked - part of the same narrative thread. I neglected to state the cover colour, which should also be the same as book 1. The seascape and the images on the other covers should only be inside the circle. 2. The time period is sort of mediaeval European, about 1300's equivalent - no electricity, no gunpowder etc. If you think lord of the Rings you are about right. 3. No, not a pirate. She's a trader's daughter, a bookkeeper, but she was slashed in the face by the man who killer her brother... 4. LOTR is about the right mood, but

      Ok, I will go with my own style of graphics, not exactly like LOTR, You give your feedback on that. The source file will be Photoshop cs3 with high resolution, And I'll give you other required file format too.

    I've already lodged the money with Freelancer. I'm not sure how it works from your end because I've only ever bought here. They transfer the money to you, so I guess it's a question you should ask them. This is a competition. That means if you win you get the money. My part is to encourage you all and choose the design I like best.
