Check out mattoduncan's Book cover contest…
Lt. Reilly and the Phantom Raptor
Matthew O. Duncan
Matthew O. Duncan is part of the resurgence of Old School Sci-fi. His books are a mix of Military Sci-fi, Fantasy, Romance, and Mystery weaved together with non-stop action.
About the book - Lt. Jack Reilly is searching for a prototype starship that was taken by a criminal organization. At many points throughout the book, the ship attacks other Alliance starships, a civilian space station, and launched misses at a major city from orbit. The name of the ship is The Raptor. What makes it a phantom is the fact that it can use it’s shields to make it difficult to see. When it does that its image becomes blended and doubles with ghost-like images in blues, yellows, and greens. It’s the size of a small battleship (I.e. In Star Trek Two the Reliant was a small battleship and the Enterprise was a large battleship)
Ages 17 and up.
What we are looking for. - We are open to great and original ideas. It does need to be easily identified as being part of the same series as the other two books. You may submit questions about ideas before starting design. We will strive to give quick feedback.
What to avoid
No stock art unless you can show full copyright ownership. No images from other franchises. (Once had a designer submit a cover the x-wings and tie fighters) No characters or montages.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
mattoduncan collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
