Ebook cover

    I've been looking for someone to do an ebook cover for me. here's what i discovered.

    So far, I have not found one who can actually draw or paint. All they do is get photos for istockphotos.com (or some other stock photography shop) and then type the title and author on. Big deal. I can do that.  However, because my cover is not something that is generally photographed, it's not that easy.

    Anybody else have the same issue?

      We have had the same experience.

      My daughter eventually got original artwork made for her ebook, but it was expensive as I recall. smile I can inquire about it if you like.

              Sorry Sophia! Can't help.

              She had heaps of trouble with her cover and does not recommend the firm who did her artwork.

              I hope someone else can assist. smile

                Okay, thanks. I'm probably just going to go for a plain cover if I cannot find someone to depict the actual story.

                Thanks for trying. smile

                  Trying to think of his name, but there is a hubber here on HP who teaches artwork, and is a brilliant drawer, and who is techy who might be able to help.

                  Hi Sophia - I use Coreldraw to make all my own stuff from headers to ads etc.  Like all the programs it is really easy once you have spent a few weeks gettingthe hang of it smile  Another opton is to physically make it and then scan it.

                    Thanks Recommend, but even though I used to use Illustrator and Photoshop a year ago, I was never able to use it freehand. smile

    Go to deviantart.com and find an artist that fits your taste and then contact them through their profile. There are tons of artists there willing and able and will illustrate for the credit.

      Already tried this. It appears that all the art I liked was done in a 3D package and was not available in a jpeg format. In addition, it also appeared that none of them (so far) is able to draw freehand (they could only manipulate existing images), PLUS, not a single one was willing to work for credit...
