REVISED May 2: I requested 3 additional days, since I revised my brief. The brief was revised as I viewed submitted designs and clarified in my own mind what I was looking for.
Book cover for a novel about a character called "The Ghost" by Clover Spence. Similar to Batman in tone. The book has a noir 40's feel. Looking for something simple and Art Deco with a limited muted palette, not a lot of bright colors. (I really like the palettes in the sample images below, maybe with the addition of a shade of green.) The character has green eyes which is remarked on several times, so the cover could have green as an accent color.
The setting is a large city like New York. I would like the background to show the city. There is a scene where the heroine falls from a balcony in a filmy white nightgown. I would like to have this included on the cover. The Ghost rescues her, and can be shown as well. He wears a black hood, mask, bodysuit, and narrow cape. He does not need to be large, if you choose to include him, but can be in the shadows or suggested rather than featured.
The book is actually a romance novel but I don't want a "romance novel cover." I'm looking for something similiar to the attached example images.
The title "The Ghost" should be featured prominently on the cover, with my name "Clover Spence" in smaller font somewhere else on the cover.
