I am interested in a painting for a book cover, and an overall cover design.
The horizontal painting would serve as the backgrounds for the front and back covers of a novel about a team of scientific time travelers from 2,200 A.D. that are shipwrecked in the wilds of Europe in 30,000 B.C. The Ice Age has receded and it is a verdant land rich in wildlife, including megafauna like woolly mammoth, rhino, red deer and auroch. The series is; 30,000 B.C. Chronicles. The first book of the series is titled, Bordeaux. I plan to release 30,000 B.C. Chronicles
next month as an e-book.
The painting does not need to be overly detailed, but to provide a time juxtaposition, it may include one or two modern tools. While nearly all of the time travelers' equipment has turned to dust, there are a few new prototypes that still work, including a "stealth" jumpsuit complete with helmet, visor and boots. Hundreds of thousands or visual receptors allow the suits to become "invisible" by sampling the surroundings and re-projecting them outward. But it isn’t perfect. Against blue sky, white fog, or even perfectly still water, the naked eye can pick up the waver of an outline. There is also a high-tech, long-barreled revolver that the main antagonist uses to gain dominion over his fellow travelers and growing contingent of natives.
The voyagers end up living and traveling with nomadic Cro-Magnon clans to survive.
In the included sketch you will see a couple in the foreground overlooking a valley where a herd of mammoth walk in the distance. The man is wearing a stealth suit. The woman is not. She is a Cro-Magnon woman dressed in a tan, cured leather toga. That's kinda what I'm looking for but I'm open to new ideas. There are also attached some previous cover concepts.
