Alfie was great to work with. He had the vision I hoped for to find in the contest. He had some pretty tough competition I must say, but he was the one that came above the rest. Not only with the opinion pull, but also he captured the essence of the book by the synopsis I gave, better than most. A really good work. Well done.

I need a front cover for a print book. No dimensions- no wrap around. I will take care of that. Just in need of the art.
Title on top: The Complete Martin Forn Series
Name on bottom: Matt Wilk
Floating quote: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend... even if he is dating my daughter."
Art in the middle: Typical Macho Men stuff! Martin Forn and Johnny Corn clasping hands with a force. In between them is Sara Forn, holding both hands together in a bid for peace. She is beautiful, but, no need to over sexualize her. Forn(on the left) is the proto-alpha hero type, angrily losing all of his power to Johnny(on the right)- a Shawnee pauper. The kids are graduating high school (age reference). Johnny loves his traditional Shawnee mohawk, just a few centimeters high, flattened in place, and following the curvature of his head. He wears a cut-off jean vest because he grew up in the nineties. Nobody has tattoos or war paint. Other than that, just draw everyone looking confident that their begrudging teamwork is the only way to accomplish the mission. They will accept it, for now.
I wish I had the last try to show you. My artist decided he would simply not send the work I payed for, because Fiverr is a scam.
This scene being depicted can be found many other places, as it a classic image of bravado. If you use stock images, look for
"Two men fighting over a woman" - Thanks
