I am an aspiring author and I need cover art for my first novel. I currently work as a radiology technologist, but would love to shift my career towards writing.
What's your vision?
Landscape view, two armies facing one another. Viewed from an angle, so the army on the left spills down to the bottom left corner and the army on right rises to the upper right corner. The scene is in a field of lush, green grass pocked with blue, white, yellow flowers here and there. The sky is blue with a few clouds hanging. Have some cloud cover darken the grass that the army on the left is occupying. Soldiers of the army on the left have a bit of a wild, disheveled look to them. Any skin exposed should be very pale. They wear black armor, mostly chain mail with dark brown/black leather chaps, but a few have plate armor. The plate armor looks a bit spiny, with jagged edges and sharp angles. Many of them have necklaces of feathers about their necks or adorning their spears and halberds. Their spears are typical looking, but the halberds have long, curved beards on their blades. Helmet wise, this army wears something akin to a bascinet helm, with a bit of metal that can be fastened across the mouth, leaving a slit for the eyes. Two tusk-like blades protrude from either side of the mouthguard, and a trio of plates travel to the back of the helmet like spines. For an example, look at the helmets the Moria orcs from Lord of the Rings wore. In this picture, the army on the left consists of a tight formation of infantry forming up. Halberdiers and spearman are rushing to the front and levelling their weapons. Behind them, a group of crossbowmen are taking aim. A sergeant or two are at the front, shouting orders to their men. The army on the right is more of a typical European army. All are mounted and beginning to charge, armed with your typical lance and wearing kite shields of the tear-drop variety. There are various sigils painted on their shields, a horse's head, a hammer striking an anvil, a raven sitting upon a tower. Banners depicting a black dragon in a sea of blue are fluttering above them. Armor-wise they are an even mix of typical knights in plate armor and others wearing chainmail over padded armor of black and brown. They are all wearing a sallet style helmets. Slightly ahead of the mass of mounted soldiers, leading the charge, is a knight wearing white plate armor trimmed with a goldenrod yellow. His horse is pure white. His helmet is a white sallet with black raven’s wings swooping backwards. In his left hand he holds an ornate longsword with a glowing orange blade. The hilt of the sword is rose gold, and the hand guard is shaped to look like eagle’s wings. On his right arm is a kite shield, but it is held at his side so you only see the back end where his arm is strapped. The sword is held before him, aimed at the enemy army.
