Entertainment & The Arts
Small press publisher in this instance representing author Rob Dorsey. Mr. Dorsey writes multi genre fiction. This specific project is a si-fi space opera with action.
What's your vision?
Book covers for hard bound books using dust covers, 6x9 trim. The author is writing a five book series. The books are based on the John Carter of Mars franchise so some knowledge of the Edgar Rice Burroughs original works or the Disney film "John Carter" would be helpful. Cover art is to convey the feeling of the book, not necessarily any specific scene. Fidelity to the characters though is important as the novels are character driven. Copper Creek Press has CGI design capability and this is adequate for some covers, however the concept for this book requires first class art, printing and format to approach the target audience.
The first cover image represents what I've gotten so far from a designer. The book cover with two swordsmen is the current cover with which we will probably publish unless someone can come up with something better in a timely manner. In that case we would switch. We print digital POD so the artwork can be changed any time. The other amateur images on my page are my own CGI but shows the style of pose and environment we are looking for. We have CGI capability (DAZ) and I can produce figures and poses to demonstrate what we are hoping for. We have designed all the principal characters in the book for guidance. As said before, we can provide good CGI likenesses of the characters to guide the artist and project the faces and attitudes of the characters. The face shot among the four pictures included is a likeness of the Princess Zurah who is the heroine of the book and features in virtually every scene. Her beauty is of course subjective but the author sees her as the perfect model for his princess. We hope this has been of help. We are seeking a long term relationship with an artist comfortable with many genres from sci-fi to medieval Japanese Samurai. Particularly for this series we want consistency in look across the five books.
