If you'd like an idea of the type of stuff I have done, this is where I'm posting completed art for all you peeps on Royal Road: Cover Art.
It's a YA space opera! Let me know if it sounds like the kind of think you'd want to do :)
This is what I came up with. Let me know what you think.

I'm new in writing, seeing those who have cover really made me jealous, and I don't think it's a good idea for me to use Microsoft Word Art in desperation. I actually like your art style and that mighty dragon, well, mines were Elves (you know those tall, slim, pointy ears and gorgeous beings). I'm thinking of a face of an Elf with a dark background on it, the Elf has pale skin, obsidian eyes, and ash grey hair. Only do it in your spare time no need to rush, thank you so much in advance.
Follow up questions about this elf you're envisioning.
Male or female?
Graceful or angular?
Fierce or gentle?
Old or young?
Any clothing details you want to expound upon?
A male child with angelic features, looking all innocent and gentle, in a plain black cloak. If it's a whole body portrait, he was holding an elven lantern. The title was Pair of Madness, if you can make a pair of male and female child that'll be great, but one would suffice.
its not a cover request but I would like to show people a bit how thorn, the succubus and arbeus the forest demon look
thorn is a succubus with long black hair, pale scarred skin, two purple horns of which one is broken in half, she has huge leathery wings and has red eyes, she also wears armour
arbeus looks like a gigantic tree with bark for skin, leaves for a beard, huge horns, claws and a tail, he also has eyes that seem to burn with green fire

I'll see what I come up with. It might take some time though.
Alright.... here's what I came up with:

Thank you so much! The vibe was on point for me, hope you're having a wonderful day, cuz you just made mine.
The fact that you like it makes my day. 😊 I hope the cover attracts lots of readers for you.
the book has a modern setting but there is this concept of invaders (think system holders, or players from the infinity/worldhopper genres) aaaaanyway the protag of my book is set in a world where these system holders pop up and complete missions by possessing the bodies of people and using them with all the system goodness of gamelit
slight problem though the bodies of people can withstand all the damage that comes with those system granted stats and the system is basically holding their bodies together like glue
invaders got super strength, enjoy the ripped muscles, shattered bones, and punctured organs that come from using forces a normal human body is incapable of handling
obviously, all that info is kept under wraps though otherwise mass panic would ensue
Arbeus Character Art from "The Wicked Warlock"
Basically the idea for the cover I have in mind is a faraway POV of a tower that is narrow at the base, but expands outward to a bulbous figure like a lightbulb, then comes back in on itself to look just like the base. The background and color of the tower can be anything you so desire since its not like the outside of the tower matters much. There are also no doors or windows so it's practically one solid form.
Again just asking if it is possible. If it isn't free I'll try my best to pay you and I would just like an actual cover that isn't trash made by me.
