I do different styles for my book covers and I think it is always easier to speak in pictures! ♥
A cover without any humans. Often with animals, flowers and objects
A cover where the main character is fully done in 3d plus overpainting. Stock is only for the background.
The main character is zoomed in and the focus is on his/her face.
Here is the main character zoomed out and the main focus is on action and movement.
Either fill out my order form or contact me via eMail/facebook to arrange the schedule for your book cover design. I require a non-refundable deposit of 30$ (out of the package price)
Contract & Info
Share the basic informations about your cover and fill out my order form and sign my contract. I will contact you for further discussion at the beginning of thebooked in month
Starting with a first draft of your book cover I work in your feedback and we work together until you agree to the final design.
You get your final book cover design files in your own cloud folder ( it stays online forever) and I send over the final invoice.
The first two days of every month are reserved to "maintance" my freelance buissness (taxes etc.)
At a fixed date at the beginning of every month I will contact all that have been booked in for the month to schedule you in. I will tell you this date either when you book in or later before the month you are booked in arrived.
Also on that day I will talk further about your cover. (Questions I may have about your order form, evtl. discuss stock if you already have preferences etc)
So I will no longer discuss covers on detail before the month you are booked in arrived. So I can focus on the customs of every month.
1. How long does it take to the final book cover?
That depends on the complexity of the work and how many revisions are necessary. My fastest was 2 days, my longest 3 weeks.
2. Do you do revisions for free?
Yes I do! As long as it stays in an appropriate frame.
3. Do you also work on weekends?
Yes I do! Sunday is mostly the day for my billings. But I also do urgent cover / logo artwork.
4. I want the ebook now and the print cover later. Will that work?
Yes, no problem. You don't need a slot in my schedule for that. I will always take print commissions.
5. I don't know my page count now (which I need for the trim size of my book)!
No problem. I make a "sample template" and fit it on later when you know your sizes.
6. Do you give away layered PSD. files?
No. I only give away flattened PSD. files. That means the artwork on one layer and the text on another.
7. Where do you get your stock from?
I use shutterstock.com, depositphotos.com, AdobeStock, and boutique stock like Neo-Stock. These are inclusive your design package. Exclusive or Extended Licenses have to be paid extra.
