What's your vision?
This is a book cover design contest that will require the creation of ONLY a front cover. Therefore, I won't need a spine or back cover/blurb, as I intend to publish this specific and subsequent works as ebooks. Title: Pandemonium -- Devourer of Souls (Subtitle) (written in fire?) Author: Derek Edgington I'm looking for a talented illustrator, and intend to partner with said person over the year in the creation of several works. EDIT: This short story is fairly satirical, although still dark in its own way. Hope this provides additional perspective when rendering images. Can provide more information upon request. The scene I envision is as follows: Two towers are central to the image. Both twisting, swirling structures of luminous metal that stretch up into the endless night above. One structure is white, the other black. A hodgepodge of other structures will dot the landscape, seemingly from random time periods/eras. There should be a numerous quality to the other structures, so some detail may need to be sacrificed here. Fire may consume a building, two, or a larger area. The White Tower may be fallen on its side, crushing untold numbers of buildings in its wake and almost reaching the Dark Tower. Dark, almost reddish-black clouds consume the upper reaches of the design (where the title will be). No light penetrates these clouds to illuminate the landscape below. Rather, light is provided by numerous, but tiny pinpricks of light that are spread throughout the landscape. Other than the specific elements I've stated, creative license is welcome. I'm looking for a darker cast in this cover, and the finished product should pair well with my dark fantasy short story.
I’m a self-published author that has been off the market for the past few years. Although I published two novels before college (I’m a 21 year old senior now), I haven’t produced any finished products since then. My goal moving forward is to produce at least one short story every other month. As my plan is to offer these for next to nothing, or free, I won’t be making any money— but the finished product still needs to be packaged professionally. To that end, I’ll still be getting these short works professionally formatted, and will have cover designs created for each. Talent in general is what I’m looking for, and obviously that’s hard to gauge or describe. Mostly, these designs will have a darker cast. Most of the short stories will be dark (genre), and mostly Fantasy, but some Fiction. So, Dark Fantasy/Fantasy/Dark Fiction/Fiction. This will probably require some ability to create less-than-realistic scenes. For the most part, I can describe the majority of what I’m looking for in a fair amount of detail for the illustration portion— but creative license is always welcome.

Working from a detailed but relatively unconstrained brief, David nailed the concept first time, and was very responsive to feedback. Very happy with the resulting artwork, and am engaging David again immediately to continue the overall project. Thanks David!
