I write fantasy fiction.
What's your vision?
I would like ebook and print covers for my forthcoming book The Jaguar and the Witch, the second in The Naturalist series, which is YA fantasy. The typography, design, layout, and *painterly* image style (not photorealist) should match the first book in the series (see attached PDF), with these differences: 1. The new book should have a jaguar's head instead of a wolf's. 2. It should have the small figure of a witch (a dark-skinned woman) instead of the hooded figure. 3. It should have the setting of a Brazilian jungle instead of a building. The colors of the cover can be different than the first book, but I want to retain the feeling of mystery and adventure. The witch figure: She could be wearing a brightly colored dress, something that black slaves in Brazil would have worn in 1647. She could also have a head wrap on. This character lives in the jungle, so her clothes should be practical (not a ball gown). Her face should not be too detailed. But it should be obvious that she is a dark-skinned woman. The jaguar: This should be a typical jaguar, not a leopard. See this link for more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar. The jaguar's eyes should draw in the viewer, like the wolf's eyes do on the first book. I've attached an image of a typical jaguar for your reference purposes. The jungle: The witch figure should be near or in the jungle scene, which should consist of jungle foliage--trees, bushes, flowering shrubs. The setting of the book is on the east coast of Brazil (Recife, in Pernambuco), so there are no waterfalls.
*Please make sure your submitted design looks like it is in the same series as the cover of The Warlock and the Wolf (see attached PDF).** I would like a print version with a layout similar to the first book (see attached PDF) and an ebook version.
