Hi Joshua, I actually checked out your covers last year, they are *really* good.

I don't know if AW has and art and design thread any more but the Self-Publication thread would find this an excellent resource - maybe the mods could move it in there? Or book promotion?

Hi, Joshua. Welcome to Absolute Write.

I've changed your image for the moment to a link to the image and your site. I'm afraid it was considerably larger than our guidelines permit. On the whole, we ask that images be no larger than about 400 by 400 pixels.

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to Absolute Write, theuglytree.

I'm afraid your mock-up book images are too large for the forum guidelines. Please reduce them in size to meet the requirements.

Also, I can't help but notice that the image on the mock-up of The Fellowship of the Ring is Ted Nasmith's painting of the Pillars of the Kings, a copyrighted image. Have you got the rights to use it?

ETA: 24 hours, no reply. Have changed images to links.

Michael Rea Illustration

Hello,

My name is Michael Rea, I'm a professional illustrator from the UK with a degree in Illustration. I recently appeared in the New Talent Showcase in Mark Millar's 'Jupiter's Legacy' (published by Image Comics), and produced the book cover and logo for the steampunk series 'The Wonder' by James Devo (published by M-Y Books).

I'm currently on the lookout for my next project and would appreciate it if you could look over my samples below. My day job is graphic design and I would also be interested in creating layouts with stock photography if required, and also formatting the book as a whole.



All of these cover images (aside from 'The Wonder') are available for purchase at £100 each, or I can be commissioned to create new pieces (rates below):

Black & white drawing (cover): £120
Digital painting (cover): £180
Traditional media painting (watercolour / gouache / acrylics) (cover): £250
Logo design: £75 for single use

If you'd like a cover that stands out from the crowd, please get in touch.

Michael

All around Drawing Artist
I am a drawing artist live and work in Boston MA. I can help you boost your appeal to audiences/consumers by creating high quality front cover or chapter illustrations for your work.

In addition to use a stock photo for your cover, I can hand draw your cover based on your description of the story; you are also welcome to supply me a few sample pictures and I can refer to them and hand draw a custom picture for your usage.

Drawing method: Pencil (black & white); digital painting/Illustration

Finished work: can go up to very high definition (default: 1600*2400 & 300 dpi) and deliver in any kind of photo format

Style: Realism, comic, 2D Animation

Pricing: I am an independent artist and my rate is below market rate, you can typically get a custom cover at close to a premade cover price

I care about your project. I'm thorough about instructions, I am easy to communicate with; I respond quickly and I'm easily accessible.

Professional book designer happy to take on low-budget work and engage in informal discussions

I'm Geoffrey, I'm a professional book designer. Past clients include National Geographic, Harper Collins, and Pearson. I'm here to mostly look around the self-publishing community and perhaps give some advice on design of book and covers, as my premiums for book design might be high for most self-publishers. This is not to say, however, that I'm not willing to take on low-budget work (I tend to have a couple of low-budget jobs going at any one time, at this very moment I have none) or not willing to chat about people's budgets, so feel free to get in contact for an informal chat - either here or through my website - and I'll be happy to help however I can as I don't necessarily believe that a low-budget should preclude having good work. Though I don't do pre-made covers.

You can look at my site for more information on me and my work, and to look at what amounts to an at-a-glance portfolio. Or you can look at a couple of recent covers below.

Good to be here,

Hi, I'm Tara at Fantasia Frog Designs. I've been a member here for awhile but I have been globally absent on forums lately. It's nice to be back and try to catch up.

Recently I have started a newsletter to notify interested parties as to when I hold premade book cover sales. If you are interested please PM me here and I'll add you to the list. Also, if you have any ideas toward what type/theme of premade cover you would like to see on my site, I'm more than happy to try to create something along those lines.

My site is located here http://fantasiafrogdesigns.wordpress.com

My next premade book cover sale will be November 1st, 2016. Just in time for NanoWrimo.
My prices range from $25-$70 for premade covers (covers that are below $25.00 aren't subject to the sale price)

The covers displayed on the linked page are chopped off. Was that done purposely?

Artist looking for titles in need of cover art/illustration

Hey all,

Artist and illustrator here, looking to work to produce custom drawings or paintings for smaller houses or independent authors ready for publishing. I have lots of existing work that is project-ready as well--I'm particularly interested in seeing older pieces put to good use. I can do the entire cover (layout, type, print-ready files) if that is needed or desired, but I'm primarily an artist and perfectly happy to work with a designer if you already have someone in mind.

Examples of my illustration work can be found at http://www.craighoughton.com/featured-work/

Here are a few hasty mockups showing how some of my existing drawings and paintings lend themselves to cover work:
25RopH8.jpg

(much larger version here)

And, if one is concerned about pricing, please don't hesitate to contact me, as I'm far more interest in matching my work up with the right project than I am in the budget. If it's not a custom piece (i.e. something unpublished that I already have made), the project is definitely going live soon, and I feel it's a good match, I may even be able to provide it gratis. Just ask! For older stuff most likely to be available with minimal charge, try my deviant art page instead of the main portfolio site.

Thanks for looking!
