Well, yes. I think we should start with this, seeing as the novel's so near completion.


Basically, this thread will be dedicated to the art that will appear in the novel. This is also where we will plan that art, under these three subheadings:

Cover Art
What shall appear on the cover of the book? Both front and back, I think. I also think I'll design this roughly, then get someone to actually make it with colour and such.

Chapter Graphics
I want every chapter to have its own penned graphic at the start, showing a basic scene from the chapter without giving away too much plot. Perhaps rather giving an idea of scenery and props or something for visual relief.

Appendix Pics
Well, we have to decide which pics we're gonna put in the book's appendix(es) at the end (that is, the section for extra info. The pics I'm talking about are things like maps and pics of the Xen'vi and other life and stuff).

Let's start with the cover.


I have a design planned out for the back cover, which will basically show Darwin, Valdin and the Ruins of Jin. I'll upload a rough pic later.

However, what should the front look like? Thought

*cough* Your Editor is usually the one that makes decisions on that.*cough*

Though If I were to chose, It would be an archaic drawing of the Algol system. Not necessarily the Kabbalistic one...

Nonetheless, I'd be working on getting published.

A list of Editors for Science Fiction.

Good luck...

Thanks. Smile


I'm still gonna design my version of the cover and send it in with the book. If they don't like it, they can make their own.


And I'm working on it. I'm first having it proof-read by multiple individuals.

Well, the book's on here, so I don't see what's stopping you. Smile
