i think i might have some nice images in mood you mention for this cover . Maybe one will fit for your cover .. but probobly not . Then i just hope my gallery will show you i am skilled and can create what you look for. Here is my gallery [link] I have also portfolio with some publicated work of mine but i would prefer to send it over PM .
Read through what you posted, think its what I do. I work in book cover art, fantasy and fiction. I am a traditional painter, and can turn the art into usable images for packaging and print use. If you are still looking at artwork samples let me know and I can send you some to view. Primary E-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
