Yarışma Özeti

I need cover artwork for a sword and sorcery book series.
Sword and Sorcery = Action Adventure + Epic Fantasy
These books are of the style of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, Fritz Leiber's Lankhmar series, R.A. Salvatore's Drizzt series, and Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar Saga.
I'm after something that feels like its from the age of pulp, Frank Frazetta's covers for Conan and Tarzan.
The title of the book is Sorceress. The sorceress is a woman in her thirties living in a Polynesian-type culture. She is strong, determined, beautiful, but also evil. The main character is a barbarian of the Conan type who wields two swords. He has dark hair and is tall, but rangy rather than overly muscled.
The setting is a city on the edge of the ocean with heavy jungle behind it. There would be a variety of ships of whatever different styles you want in the harbour. There is a palace atop a bluff overlooking the ocean and the city. On a bluff facing it across the harbour is a pyramid temple in the Mayan style. The city itself can have Mayan or Asian influences. This is a fantasy world, so adherence to a single style isn't necessary. There is no advanced technology though. The most advanced technology are cannons used on the ships.
There are all sorts of fantasy world creatures, griffins, sea monsters, dragons, etc. Though these probably wouldn't be lingering about a city.
The image needs to be at least 150mm wide by 200mm high and have a resolution of at least 450dpi. There should be a strong central image showing some sort of action, and have plenty of space around the outside that is either mostly fairly light or mostly fairly dark where the cover text can be put.

    If you can do photo manipulation to make it look like an illustration, that's fine, otherwise, just illustration.

    This is the same character as the earlier books, but he doesn't need to be wearing a head cloth.
