Author Name: Löwenmensch
Profession: Author
Preferred Art Style: Pulp art (but open to other styles)
Story: Only the Dead Are Cold-Blooded
Request: Cover art featuring two characters

My novel's current cover (visible—probably much too large—in my sig) is AI generated, and I'd like to replace it with human-made artwork in color.

My idea for the new cover is a sort of double character portrait; I have very specific ideas about the characters' appearances (I'd be happy to share my references later in the process), but I'm not really sure about the poses or background. It wouldn't be anything particularly sexual or action-packed.

My ideal style for this project is either retro-pulp à la Hard Case Crime (which fits the tone of the book) or something like socialist realism (which fits the setting), but I'm open to other styles as well.

My budget is flexible; I wouldn't expect to pay less then $100.

Hey there, I’m a character illustrator with a semi realistic style. I have experience mainly in fantasy but I’m versatile and happy to broaden my horizon. Check out my portfolio and let me know if you’re interested!


My rate for 2 characters in a painterly style, probably both half body for compositional reasons, would be Id say $160.

If you want a good artist, I mean good, made the cover for my story, check out Eromochi on sketchmob. <$50 for this masterpiece, copyright included. https://www.scribblehub.com/read/962213-project-ninetyseven/chapter/1041835/
Dunno about pulp style, but if you show him what you're looking for he can probably make it happen.
How did you put up your cover art on a chapter permanently, everytime I put an image up using it from discord it goes away after a few days? I don't think you can upload an image either.

Don’t use discord. They change the image url every few hours or days to prevent the spread of malware. Use Imgur that is used for image hosting.

After saving your image on Imgur, don't copy the provided link. Instead, right click with your mouse on your image saved on imgur and click "Open image in a new tab". Copy the url link of that tab instead.
