I need an illustration to use on the inside front cover of my horror novel (it will also be used, in reduced size, on the three Part pages (Part One, etc.). It will be printed in black and white, so a line drawing/etching look would probably work best, something that looks like an old a scientific illustration perhaps? It will not take up the full page but be a design element below the title, about 2.5 inches tall.
The image needed is of the creature that's in the book, which looks like a large leech with wings. The body is pudgy. They don't have eyes or mouths, but they do have a stinger that feels like a hypodermic needle when it goes into you. The wings are rubbery, like a bat's, but not scalloped. In the book, they're depicted flying, but there's also a scene where they're newly "hatched," and they have their wings wrapped around their bodies. (They're also shown unsticking their wings in preparation for flying the first time). I'm good with whatever pose you think would look best.
I would need world English language rights for inclusion on four pages of the novel in both print and ebook format.
