Commission – Book Cover Concept

I have recently been hired to do a book cover for author Heath Amodi. Obviously the book is about vampires and this is a rough concept on his description he gave me.  He allowed me to show the rough concept on my blog but I wont show the finished version until the book is published. He gave me a little background on the story and it sounds really interesting and definitely movie material so I am hoping this does really well for him.

I liked watching the Blade trilogy and a few other related movies but honestly the thought of a Vampire is really disgusting. I mean aside from the fact that they’re the damned that prey on humans the idea of drinking blood is just down right gross. LOL When I had 4 teeth removed I had the taste of blood in my mouth for a week, it was the nastiest thing! But I digress…

The king is made up from imagination(Sorry ladies, this guy wont send you flowers and court you) but the woman is a real person, her name is Ida Mary Walker and was kind enough to let me use one of her photos as a reference. At this rough stage there are only hints of her features but when I’m finished it will look a lot like her. She has a lot of wondeful photos people use called Stock Images on DeviantArt. You should check her stuff out, she did an apocalypse theme with her daughter that I thought was so awesome. You can view her work here: http://mizzd-stock.deviantart.com/ She doesn’t charge artists to use her photos and asks that we link back to her stock gallery in return. She has a donation button on her page and I would recommend doing this for her because she’s done a lot for the DA community for photos so the least we can do is donate what we can to help her with costume fees etc..

Till next time…
