I have uploaded the first book cover for Yellow Green Beret, Volume I. I am looking for a book cover for the second volume.
I want it to look almost exactly the same - the same font placement, same colors, same placement of the avatar on the right hand side.
Instead of having a tropical island in the background, I'd like to try two versions of for the second cover.
1. The first one is having the backdrop of urban, burnt-out Iraq. I imagine the buildings to have gaping holes in them, destroyed from firefights and air strikes. The roads and buildings should be gridded. The buildings should not be higher than two or three stories, and they are all mashed up against each other - no alleyways. I imagine a very large sun overlooking to emphasize the heat. The colors should be grey and brown to convey the desert and arid nature of Baghdad. The avatar should be in desert camouflage fatigues.
Like in the first cover art, there are small black images of nipa huts and palm trees. In this one, I'd like to see small black figures of soldiers (about 20-30 of them), getting ready or in the process of storming a house in the background behind the avatar.
A mosque's silhouette needs distinctly to be in the background somewhere and nearby it can be Arab dressed mea and women.
2. The second one is having the backdrop of West Point. The photo uploaded is the angle that I would want to see of West Point - of the front two barracks and the chapel in the distance. The scene should be in the winter - snow on the ground. The cadets should be in the back dressed up very warmly in the winter uniform, which I've uploaded for reference and photos. The avatar should be dressed in a white arctic camouflage uniform like in Inception or the the movie Shooter.
There should be many cadets walking around in the background that look very busy.
If there are both great designs for both the Baghdad and the West Point cover designs, then I will award two prizes.
I am looking for the art style to be very similar to the first one - a bit cartoony and artsy.
