I want a high res design that is capable of being seen clearly in a thumbnail as well as a physical book. Clarity and originality is key for me. Here's a scene I think would be attractive: Ophelia stands atop a pile of rubble covered in tall grass, above the once-chaotic battlefield. Below rest the remains of the mangled dead and shattered machines. There would be a nice breeze today if it were not for the billowing, acrid black smoke of war that occasionally blots out the warm spring sun. I scan the field replete with dead bodies, burning vehicles, and debris. What draws my attention aren't the corpses and scorched earth, but the patches of vibrant green foliage, dotted with blue, red, and orange wild flowers, that punctuate the battlefield. The infinitely invasive Keynosian plant life seems to grow anywhere and under any condition. Every Alliance territory taken by the Keynosians bears these beautiful green scars. All that's left of the city's magnificent factories are a few towering smokestacks blanketed in the gentle pastel colors of Keynosian occupation. There are other scenes that may be interesting, but the above is one that I gave the most detail on. Feel free to review the attached document and use your imagination to come up with better ideas. I'm open to more interpretive depictions. Characters Jocelyn Martinez is a 42 year old former teacher who was transformed into a super soldier (yes, like Captain America). Her curly black hair is just beginning to gray showing more than a few strands of silver. She's curvy, small breast but wide hips. I'd say her personal style would be no-nonsense. If going into fight, she'll be dressed for that and nothing else. No painted nails or earrings. She's a warrior after all. Patricia Patel would appear Indian. Ophelia is a cherry blond. They all wear uniforms that form fitting, but not skin tight. The uniforms are lined with pockets and bear a six pointed star on the sleeve. I hope the added description helps.
