Pls. see below my first specifications.
After the first hours of this cover competition I reconsidered my specifications. First designs with a couple on the cover are seen.
Now I would like to really widen my specifications. Pls. also make proposals without a couple on the cover. Pls. feel free to be creative.
Background: Dark, it's night. Maybe a moon can be seen.
Dark outlines of a city. Examples:
Title: "In the shadow of the twilight" in bright writing
In the foreground is a couple: René and Cleo
René, the vampire stands sideways with his back towards the right edge of the book, his body slightly turned to the side, i.e. opened towards the reader, so that his chest / front body is recognizable.
The face is turned towards the reader, the gaze should capture you directly. René has black hair, black, curved eyebrows, piercing green eyes, a light skin. Light 3-day beard. Type: Ian Somerhalder from Vampire Diaries.
René is very affectionate and tender, so do not depict the person too "hard", his face should have loving features. But he is also a type of protector.
Cleo: approx. 2 heads smaller. She stands in front of René, i.e. for the reader she is only recognizable from the side. I.e. the reader doesn't see the whole face either, because Cleo looks up at René. Both hands of her rest on his upper body. Cleo has red-blond, wavy, shoulder-length hair. If something of the face is recognizable, Cleo should illuminate her René properly, adore her (in a positive, not naïve way).
