I am looking for color character concept art to be used as a book cover. The characters \ elements to be included in the cover are:
EG - female, mid-30s, tall \ flat-chested, with olive-skin and long dark hair styled up in a bun; wears a high-necked victorian dress (or skirt and blouse) and boots - holds a pistol in one hand and keeps another at her hip (flintlocks); in her other hand, she holds a lantern which functions as a faerie's cage \ emits an eerie glow.
AW - 50s; very big guy, broad-shouldered, tall, etc; built like a linebacker. Keeps a two-handed sword on his back; wears leather armor, breeches, and boots; handlebar moustache. He helped raise Evelyn from the time she was a little girl, and is always close behind or at her side.
The Creature (optional) - a monstrous insect with a greenish-black carapace, a "primordial nightmare of antennae, chitin, and clacking mandibles"
"Greycoats" (optional) - city watch members in barbutes and breastplates, with rifles, spears, or swords, may be carrying a lantern or torch
"Bluecoats" (optional) - laborers, equipped with tools such as shovels, pickaxes, etc; may be carrying a lantern or torch.
1) an underground cavern with tunnels and light, accessed via shaft above. Carved into the walls are grinning frog-faced statues with fat bellies, like little Lovecraft Buddhas. Optionally, elements of an ancient, buried Greco-Roman city may be visible embedded in the walls as well (columns, arches, etc.)
2) "The Chamber of Eyes" - entering a massive underground cavern \ chamber, with a Greco-Roman Temple in the center; the walls are covered in eyes - these are open to interpretation; they may be carved from stone, or may be formed by monstrous insects curled up into an stylized eye-shape.
3) "The Estate" - at night, outside a large estate in a city with a distinctly "medieval German" vibe; lanterns or torches for illumination, etc. Characters should be approaching the estate.
“Carlo did an excellent job capturing the atmosphere we were looking for with our book cover contest.”
