Here's an overview of the illustrations desired (please read the attached short story to understand).
1. Opening action scene of Raven fighting/training with Vine in the garage; Mace is moving toward them, but Will is holding him back
2. Will standing (eyes closed), receiving his message from heaven with a dialogue box of "Quiet! Heaven whispers." Above him (top 3rd of the page) should be an abstract image of fire, acid, some kind of chaos at the St. Louis Mercer Stadium - the vision he's receiving from heaven.
3. Mace, Raven, Vine hovering above/descending to the stadium/concert,ssibly with the midplane above them. The midplane should look like an aurora borealis. We need a visual cue to understand that no one else can see them.
4. Mace and Vine with wings extended, hovering above the stage, looking shocked as the crowd looks on and the fireworks are bursting around them.
5. Nikki sitting up in bed after her dream. Clock reads 11:15. Above her (top 3rd of the page) should be an ethereal image of Mace's ocean-blue eyes. Dialogue box of "Boys with wings. As if."
6. The cover of the eBook: a montage of the illustrations (Nikki sitting up in bed, Mace and Vine above the stage, the fire/acid/chaos of Will's vision).
