I received over 250 designs in my contest for a thriller book cover, and B&J came out on top with a thrilling, classy, high-quality design that perfectly fit the mood I wanted. Made changes with amazing speed, came up with fresh suggestions, was polite and professional throughout. The sort of designer for whom everything seems effortless. Very highly recommended, and can't wait for our next project!
licarto was amazing to work with! They listened to my feedback and went above and beyond to make me happy. 5 Star artist!

quarterbackTB has been phenomenal throughout this process! He really got my vision and patiently tweaked the design until it was absolutely perfect. I intend to return to him for the next two books in my series. GREAT experience with a fantastic artist!

I need a full cover (front, back, spine) designed for a novel.
The story is about a mystical oarsman, in the time of castles and knights, who rows a dying man up a river to help him find the paradise at its end. Even though told against the adventures of the man's life, the story is really about the oarsman, his relationship to the river, and how he changes the man's life through his quiet ways.
I'd need the final PSD file so I can add layers with text or other design elements (subtitle, blurbs, etc.) when I finalize them.
I mocked up a picture with stock photos which captures the feel of the book (fantasy, mystery, adventure, peace).
This can be used as a starting point to improve on. Ignore the font/placement of the title and focus on image and see if that could be made into a sellable book cover. I have uploaded the psd file with all the elements in layers.
The book has fantasy elements, but is mainly spiritual/literary fiction, so I'm looking for something akin to my mockup: more serious, something that stands out from all the other fantasy covers.
Or, if you have an idea in a completely different direction, I'd love that too.
