***Note: The following description is pretty much the product description/pitch/back cover words/whatever people call these things nowadays.
There are tales of a dangerous man living on the planet Krio, and for a time this man was simply called Gambler. This man did not simply gamble with money, but with other peoples lives. Because of this, he was called a monster, a villain, an evil man of sorts. However, what is the real truth behind all these rumors these so called lies?
Gregory Vicks is the name of this mysterious fellow. He is a man that has a heavy past, and is currently working to release himself from his sins, as he claims. With his most recent mission, he begins his journey aboard an inexplicably normal train, towards a mountain made entirely of metal. However like most other things, someone always seems to enjoy interrupting his missions.
Following certain decisive events, he uncovers the mystery behind many secrets, and meets many new powerful enemies throughout his journey. Some of which includes a gigantic, free thinking mechanical being that uses screaming missiles as its primary weapon, and another may just as well include the very impossibly large open sky itself. And like all his enemies, Gregory uses his most prized weapons to vanquish his foes his own two fists.
However make no mistake; there are multiple methods of fighting inside this war torn world. Take his gambles for example; even they too shall evolve over time with the help of certain trusted allies. This is a high paced world filled with many twisted turns and events, and although hard to imagine, the many different encounters and actions taken throughout Gregorys journey will be nothing like you have ever experienced. This leaves you, the reader with a simple objective.
And that is to enjoy the journey, and see why this man, Gregory Vicks is known as The Worlds Strongest Gambler!

Style and Content
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Black, White, Gray, Red, Gold, Silver, Blue, Brown, Yellow, Green, Orange... mainly those, but feel free to use anything else not mentioned that's needed to finish the cover art.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your design?
Pink, however in the miraculous event pink is needed for some type of shading or whatever, go right ahead.
Describe the style(s) you like (traditional, modern, etc.)
Surrealism would fit this type of novel best. Realistic-Animation style art can be used as well, but then the entire thing would have to be with this style only. Elements of Abstract can also be used.
What content must be included in your design?
The main character in the foreground, a view from the back is a must. For this, possibly just him walking down an endless road of fire with him walking through the 'ghost-like' flames (desolate looking landscape), moving towards an unreachable 'hurricane sized tornado' in the background. Filling the immediate sky around him is also a barrage of incoming red colored missiles all moving towards the main character as well.
*The main character, can be wearing either a pinstripe type 2 piece business suit, or red colored garments. The red garments are a loose fitting sweat pants, and a short sleeved shirt of similar makeup. His black colored hair must reach his lower waist, but not beyond. He wears either black colored shoes with the suit, or a smooth looking red shoe with the red garments. Skin color? A light tan color or something like that, not very dark or very bright shades.
He uses a black colored metal briefcase, and black colored metal gauntlets that should currently be equipped to his hands. The briefcase is inside his left hand, flung over his left shoulder. His right hand is placed inside his right pants pocket.
*Sounds a bit ridiculous I'll admit, hence the need for surreal/animation style required.
