Looking to commison some original art

More details inside



I am thinking of creaing an ebook version of my book Drowning Rapunzel and am looking for someone to draw/illustrate the cover. As it's an ebook, I'd only need a front cover and a small file size, suitable for the web.


Blurb from the book:

Beth Gregory thinks she has it all, new job, new friends and a new love in her life. Recently released from a mental hospital, Beth has one major fear; that the visions which caused her hospitalisation in the first place will return. They do, this time giving Beth visions of drownings before they happen. She becomes the prime suspect in the murder investigations and then she has the most disturbing vision of all: she will become the next victim...

Regarding ideas, I have a vision in my head of a tall tower on the edges of a lake with a back view of a woman with long red hair waist deep in the water, looking towards the tower. But I am open to suggestions :)

I like both photo-realistic styles like this:

and also manga artwork like this:

or traditional like this:

I am also open to suggestions of different styles such as photomanips etc. I'm not the artist :)

If anyone is interested, please email me for details, with maybe some links to samples of your work and what price frame you'd expect and what sort of input you'd need from me (characters, places etc. if you need it.)

Email annette.gisby@which.net

I have lost count of how many artists I have contacted through places like deviantart, but no one has got back to me in almost a year, even with a no.


take care,
Annette

this is a placeholder... I am en vacance in France, and have a fairly full queue of art due int he next few months, but I am interested in developing as an illustrator. So, if it is helpful, I'd like to consider the job, read the fic, and see if you could identify a style of mine that you like.

I consider my fandom art work a sort of graduate program in illustration, so I am a work in progress.

let me know what you think...

Thanks, Venturous, I have a few offers of people interested in doing the art so I am having to make a decision, LOL! (I'm terrible at that, LOL!) I will let you know :)

take care,
Annette

Thanks, Venturous :)

I've decided to go with Amy on this project, but thank you for your interest. I do like your art, it just wasn't what I was looking for at the moment :)

Good luck!
