'The Robot's Daughter' ~ Cover art and design for W. Blake Heitzman (@navajobob)

W. Blake Heitzman's, The Robot's Daughter, presented a challenge from the initial planning stage; my and Blake's first live chat on the contact page on my website.

In the end, Blake and I decide to choose a key, turning-point scene, that didn't also mimic what the title implies, allowing the title to offer a separate clue than the visual does ...

We also wanted to have a female-reader-friendly cover.

Sci-fi is predominantly a male genre. We knew anything about robots and spaceships would attract the guys, but we wanted something to catch the female eyes, as well. What better than a half-naked, modern day South-West Native American in jeans, boots, and cowboy hat alongside his furry, shape-shifting spirit-companion?

The biggest challenge? The lighting. Nighttime scenes are tricky to begin with, but nighttime scenes with a glowing spaceship that lights the environment is even trickier. The trick? LOTS of drafts and cussing ... lol.

From distant regions of the galaxy to the offices of the world’s most advanced corporation a war rages between good and evil, but for the robot’s daughter the…

'Heaven's Return' by Rhabi Rites (@playwright42) ~ cover art and design

I've read more than once that it's 'amateur' to use only three or four colors, (primary colors at that) mainly because it's easy to go 'flat'. However, I like the dramatic contrast, and if shadows, reflections, and highlights are used effectively, it works, and thankfully, my clients think so, too.

Heaven grew up asking questions about who she was because everyone thought she had been adopted. Her search led her down a road of promiscuity and she thought she'd found her purpose. This road came to an abrupt end when the love of her life, Sam, left her, alone and pregnant. Hitting bottom Heaven knew she needed to find solace and thought she had when she gave her life to Christ. 

She didn't stop being irresistible to men and her beauty was hypnotizing but she decided to live this life with Christ was what she missed all those years until...he appeared. Sam was back, and he was even more pleasant to her eyes. His smell, his walk, those lips...she then realized that her desire for him was more intense and her love, deeper. She wanted to continue living a Christ-like life, but her passion wanted him...more.

Aidana, I know that you mentioned that you do not always get your messages from this site. I hope that you get this one :-)

I just started a new forum based upon an author interview of an indie who has had tremendous success over on Wattpad. I hope that you can follow the link below and post a comment and/or question. Perhaps you can mention the importance of an awesome book cover? :-)

I love your artwork!

I used to have books that featured all artwork and illustrations of science fiction and fantasy scenes. Your picture above reminds me very much of that very type of artwork.

I am trying to get quotes for a cover illustration and book cover for my upcoming novel, Blood and Fire: The Vampire/Dragon Wars.

You can click on my avatar to go to my page and view the prototype illustration that I am working with right now. It needs a lot of work. The characters depicted are essential elements for the cover illustration-I just need the finished product to look infinitely more professional.

Please let me know if you are available for hire and how much you require for your services.

Thank you,

You said I should add a testimonial to your site.........I just did.

Of course you know that my reference to your being dark was my ultimate compliment.

I find the genre you pursue to be a dichotomy between light aloofness billowing in time and space, juxtaposed against a dark motionless haunting spirit. It has a gossamer quality that travels the inexplicable path of multi-colored infinity which communicates with everything and nothing.
