First of, if i'm in the wrong place i apologize, I do appreciate moderator help if that is the case.
As the title states I am looking for an illustrator for a novel I am writing. I am currently in the first draft so the final product is still a long way of so at the moment I am really just looking around out of curiosity.
I was wondering if anybody here is interested in potentially doing a few illustrations later on. Notably the book cover (I've uploaded a super basic example that I made with Canva in about 5 minutes...) and 4 full page illustrations to be placed at the start of each of the 3 acts and at the end of the third. So 5 drawings in total. I am also curious how you guys sell/license your work and an example offer would also be really appreciated.
As there is no finished product yet on my end, I'm not currently looking for any procurement but should anyone wish to send me something I would really appreciate that. Of course I will not commercially use anything without the proper agreement. I also wouldn't like it if someone took my work, so, if i get sent anything at this stage it will remain purely private.
So, in case anybody wishes to send me something for me to see your individual style, what I am looking for is a drawing or render of a flying steamship (yes, a flying steamship
I'm writing a fantasy/steampunk crossover novel and flying ships are a big thing in the story. I am really curious what you guys can/are willing to do with that. The only requirement I have is that the ship has no balloon like you see in the usual steampunk ship, but also doesn't look like someone just took a regular ship and put it in the air. I also like a big plume of sooty black smoke billowing from the chimney to show the sort of dirty part of industrialism.
BTW, coming back to the attached example cover, I'm not asking for any of that now but just as a general idea I selected a basic stock photo of a cloudy sky with the idea that on the final product there should be a skyship (as i call them) seen steaming off in the distance, perhaps going in or coming out of a cloud.
Big thanks to you all and I'm looking forward to any reactions.
