Bring Your Book To Life On a Custom Cover
Want something unique and unusual? Anything is possible with digital art. At Llynara.com, we combine 2D and 3D art to create book covers no one has ever seen before. You’re not stuck sorting through thousands of overused stock photos for something that looks kind of like your characters. If you can dream it, we can create it.
3D art is highly customizable. Anything can be changed or altered. It can be as photo realistic as you want. It can also be made to look like a painting, a cartoon, or any other style. Combined with 2D art techniques, it’s incredibly powerful. I believe it is the future, and will eventually replace today’s heavy use of stock photos. The only limit is your imagination.
Here are a few examples (click on each picture below for a better view.)

How Much Does it Cost?
Custom covers start at $500 because of the many hours of work involved in creating unique art. I try to keep my prices reasonable because I love what I do and am also an author. If you’re tight on cash, don’t worry – premades covers and tailored premades will be available soon to fit a variety of budgets.
How Long Does It Take?
Each cover, just like each book, is unique. Some come together quickly, some don’t. Once we’ve got a firm idea of what you’re looking for. I can estimate time along with price. Revisions will make that process longer, but are often necessary.
Revision Limits: I don’t like to limit revisions and will work closely with each customer to make sure they have a cover they love. However, excessive revision requests will result in additional charges. Things do happen, projects do change mid-course sometimes, which is why this is a process, just like writing your book was. I’ll work with you every step of the way. My goal is to help you and your book shine in a crowded market. Together, we can do that.
If you do happen to be on a tight deadline, one of our premade covers might be a better fit for you.
