Cover design needs to be: 600x800 pixels. There needs to be an abundance of emerald green on the cover. The novel takes place in both the jungle and Saigon therefore both need to be represented. A helecopter in the background may work.

    Hi Alexanderdgrate, Draft #11 is perfect. you've created exactly what I have in mind. This will be a very good representation for mu novel. I have shown it to others that have read the book and they agree.

    Hi Alexanderdgrate. I don't thind you are gopng to find a eurasian woman. However there is anoother solution. The woman in this draft looks good but looks very Japanese. Vietnamese women look more chinese. Is it possible for you to substitute a goog looking chinese woman for the one we've got? I know I'm being picky,but it makes a difference. If you can do that the contest id over.

    Hi alexanderdgrate. The woman is a Eurasian. Half Vietnamese and half French. Everything is perfect except the eyes. Could they be a little more oval or almond shaped? That may be asking too much. But don't change anything else. Actually it could be a different woman if that would be easier to do than change the eyes. Just so she is Euration with black hair. But be sure you present her in the same way because you have nailed the effect.

    alexanderdgrate draft #2

    I left out one word at the bottom. The word by. It should read by Jerry O Hunter. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi,Alexanderdgrate
    That is exactly the building I had in mind and the way I wanted it portrayed. I noticed the helecopter change. I appreciate your efforts. Is it possible to have a very gost like Womans head with black hair in the water on the right (barely visable)? Women play a big part in the novel and the read a lot of books. I want them to know there is more to this book than war. This is not a deal breaker. But if possible it would be great. One last thing that I forgot, my name. At the bottom put in Jerry O Hunter. Not to big. I don't want to distract from this great looking cover.

    Hi, I corrected the name and inserted the building I hope that is what you were looking for. I did a little research and found out that the helicopter I had in the previous design was not used in the vietnam war.

    It may be my fault the spelling is wrong. Anyway,I'd like to know if there is any way you could subliminably show in the background a low building city like Saigon? A large part of the novel takes place .However I don't want it to interfear with the atmosphere you have created. It is perfect.

    I like this design. However, odyssey is spelled wrong on your draft.
