I have a problem! Maybe you can help!

I have to create enough sellable art in 8 weeks to fill 3 bays at a science fiction convention art show.

I also, as I have this sideline of ebook covers, have to create enough example covers and pre-made covers that I can sell to make my website worth visiting.

I have zero inspiration, alas. (I swing wildly between zero inspiration and too much coming at me, and no focus. #ADHDlife)

I am thinking that maybe if people supplied me with fake book titles, original characters from your fic (Genre fic: SF/F/Horror/Historical/Paranormal Romance, etc.) or RPGs, or other types of potential inspiration, it might help me focus.

No fanart, and you'd have to give me permission to sell prints and/or originals if it's your original character. (Stick with fake book/story titles if you're unsure!)

If I end up with a work out of it, I'll happily email you a high-res copy (with a permission letter for printing it out if you want to take it somewhere or get a print made online).

Obviously, I'm not going to be able to get to everyone's requests, and I have to impose a request deadline of AUGUST 1st, 2015 so I don't keep getting requests that I feel guilty about not being able to fulfill.

(If you want to know what I'm most looking for, it'll be things that have appeal to a wide variety of buyers. Your OC set in the contemporary American midwest might have great personal meaning to you, but not to someone who doesn't know the history of the character.)

Title: Moonlight Crescendo.
Style: Sci-Fi/F
Info: Three species. Three regions.
Vampires. Highly Technologic worlds. Feeds onto a rose that procures the nutritive elements they need. They own slaves (humans and werewolves).
Humans. Technology can be compared to our modern world. Some have magical powers, but they are few.
Werewolves. Stuck in a medieval-like settings, low technology. They are placed far far away from vampires, whom they fear. The Moon is their mistress.

(You can also and go inspire yourself with my unfinished stories at fictionpress ( www.fictionpress.com/u/133842/… ). They are old things that I never intend to finish XD )

Alright, saw this and I figured I'd help out too.

So, my character, Olivia from a project I'm working on called Werewolf's Kiss. 
Olivia is a new werewolf before her shift but the changes are already happening. She's thin but healthfully so with slight muscle. She has straight midback length black hair with a strand of chocolate brown in the front. Her eyes are a dark brown and she's got caramel colored skin. At 17, she's 5'11. She's always in sweats and a black tank top except when she is sent to North Pledge High to investigate murders of the student body. Her uniform there consists of a navy blue blazer and a black plaited skirt. And her signature ass kicking knee high boots. For much of the book she carries a black hilted dagger that has a blood collection unit in the hilt's bottom.

Hope this helps!

You can give me one of these:

1) Title for a (nonexistent) book or story--I've started a sideline doing ebook covers for self-publishers, both commissioned and pre-made (I pre-make covers, and they buy them from the site, and I put in their name and the books title). I need ideas for paintings/drawing for these covers, and a fake title serves as a jumping-off point for inspiration

or

2) An original character of yours--general description, personality, etc. You can see what brandiyorkart gave me over on my original-art DA account as an example.

In both of these cases, I need permission to sell prints and the original work, since I've got an art show in 8 weeks that I am seriously lacking stuff for. :) In return, if I do art inspired by one of your suggestion, I'll give you a high-res copy good to make a print of. No guarantees that I'll do it, though, as the idea is to generate a pool of ideas I can pull from, instead of doing straight commissions.

(Anyway, since I need to sell these and a science fiction convention art show, I'm looking for ideas good for genre pictures--fantasy, science fiction, horror, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, historical, etc.)

Ahh okay! This might be a bit difficult, since I don't really hang on this side of genre, but I can try!



- Lucis Arogathan - From the land of Hollis Isles, comes the main hero, Lucis. He is a ordinarily elf who tries to make a living in the capital as a pageboy. That is until the land is threaten by the neighboring country, Aores, the land of ogres. Many of the villagers , including himself, train and prepare to fight the ogres. This is The Adventures of Lucis Arogathan. 

He basically looks like a peasant at first , short back and long bang hair, dark brunette to auburn hair, green-blush eyes, fair to slightly tanned skin, and has a fake elf ear on his left side due to a incident that happen when he was younger (img09.deviantart.net/a6aa/i/20… basically one of these but on one side to make himself not seem incomplete), and when he is in battle, and has an hood and is an ax wielder and archer

Excellent, thank you! I'm putting all of the suggestions I get into a spreadsheet that I can peruse for ideas and inspiration. If I end up doing this, I'll let you know! :D
