Don’t know yet
Hey, I need a book cover for a fantasy/mythologic book. The scene of the cover take place in the end of the story. It’s the final battle on a cliff (woods on the left and discover sky/see on the right). The sky is pretty dark. My characters are surrounded by warriors, armed with swords, bow and shields. I want my main character group in the foreground and the antagonist in the background and the shape of them on the foreground which cover a bit the view. (Like the cover I added « Gardiens des Cités Perdues » and « Les Travaux d’Apollon) For the 3 characters / heros : - A young woman (26 years old), blond and long curly hair. She is holding a divine and lightning sword. She is the only one looking at us/ennemies and between her two friends. (It’s the main character) : reference → Gardiens des Cités Perdus. Can you make her eyes/pupils shine in gold ? (she had divine power from Zeus) and the sword must looks divine ! - A young man (20 years old), black curly hair with a bow/arrow in his hands. Aiming at ennemies at her left side. - A man (30 years old) brown/blond short hair and straight with 2 greek swords (One long and one short) Prepared for battle at her right side. We have to see his face on the cover ! If you can illustrate it that will be amazing ! I search for a beautiful and graphic book cover. Like the cover untitled « Shroud of Eternity » of Terry Goodking. For the title and the subtitle, I would like a powerful and strong font if it’s possible ! (Like Les Travaux D’Apollon bookcover) The 3 littles words/sentence in the beginning of the description must be separate of the main text because it’s like a introduction I don’t know if you will understand so I add a cover : Les Héros de L’Olympe / Percy Jackson. The long sentence in gold is the perfect example of what I search for :D For the back of the book : if you can continuate the look of the illustration like "Les Héros de l'Olympe / percy jackson" and add the symbol of an Ouroboros ? It's the snake which is eat its own tail. It must be very subtle, almost invisible like a shadow of the snake behind the text. Thank you very much
What to avoid

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Claire Lecocq collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
