$500 Cover Book Illustration by Alberto Besi
« on: April 30, 2017, 07:19:16 am »
Hello everyone!

My name is Alberto and I'm a freelance cover artist.

My working experience is rich in various kinds of collaborations: going from comics and concept art to the illustrations for board games and video games.
In this last two year, I had the opportunity to work as a book cover artist with different authors as Samuel E. Green, Daniel Polansky, Andrea Atzori, T.A. Miles, Dominika Lein, Rick Scott, Joseph Stovall, etc...  and publishing houses like Acheron Books, Raventide books, Alladin Publishing, etc etc.
(Enough! the list of names would be too long... sorry! :D eheh)

What I'm constantly looking for, when working with my clients, is to create genuine and totally original covers.
What I can promise you is quality, with a mutual respect for your work and your deadlines.

To get started, sent me a proposal by email! Feel free to ask any questions you might have. I always try to reply quickly.

Email: [email protected]
Website: (for now, it is not online. itll be as soon as possible)

Anyway, you can check my online portfolio, here: https://www.artstation.com/artist/albertobesi

My rates are $500 for a front cover.
$150 extra for typography / graphic design
$200 extra for wraparound cover

(This is just a prediction. The price may be higher or lower according to your needs)

    That's great work. I think I saw some Rome in there, too.

    Good luck with your site. I bookmarked the thread.

    Great work. I'm seeing most of your current portfolio is in fantasy. Do you do other genres as well (specifically sci-fi, with spaceships etc.)?

    Question: Do you ever subcontract out your illustrations? I'm a designer and sometimes I'm in need of a specific illustration - always on the lookout for fresh talent.

    Excellent work! I am also very glad you listed pricing. A lot of artists will visit and are reluctant to state even a base price (some say they think it is a bit gauche). Yet I know authors will often over estimate the base price based on quality (ETA and thus never inquire because they think they cannot afford the artist). Those are excellent starting prices and it is great that you also offer the typography services.

      For now, I'm full of work until june 14th.
      About my timework is around 2/3 weeks. (depend from the complexity of the cover)

      Thanks Dana. I think the price of an author is influenced by several factors. (experience, quality, artist's name, etc.)
      What I always do is to make a correct price for me and the needs of the clients. For my experience, everything has its price. :)

      Very impressive stuff. I like!

      As an aside, would these kind of illustrated covers work well only in certain genres? I am thinking they would be best for fantasy, sci-fi, etc.  Or could an illustrated cover like this work well in other genres?

      First of all, thanks! :D

      About your question: I think that a good illustration, with a great aesthetic, usually works fine with virtually anything.
      Certainly, it is of crucial importance to understand which style is the best for a particular work, based on its literary genre and the type of audience that will buy it. :)
      For example, I really would like to illustrate a historical book, perhaps on ancient Greece! For this reason, obviously, I would tend to a "classic" style rather than a modern style.

      Alberto did a wonderful job on an illustrated urban fantasy cover - great communication, followed all instructions, and came up with something unique and eye-catching that still captured the genre. Highly recommended.

      Hi :)

      Alberto is great to work with, he has a unique vision of how things work together. Also, he can handle a nitpicky client (me!). ;)
      Recommended a thousand times, will work with him again on the next cover of the series. :)

      Alberto did a wonderful job on an illustrated urban fantasy cover - great communication, followed all instructions, and came up with something unique and eye-catching that still captured the genre. Highly recommended.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Nick. :)

      Excellent work Alberto

      I think I can probably find you some additional work as a concept artist in the realm of film production. I'll track you down on facebook and message you there, as all in contacts in that business are on that social media rather than here.

      I've been told that my signature is too long, so here is the BLUF. Don't click anything if you got here via Google. Your data is now theirs.

      No, I do not agree to the TOS. I didn't sign up under it and don't agree. Further, you don't own any of my stuff. Period. I'm overwriting and deleting it all, and I highly recommend you who are reading this do the same. Focus on that which gives good Google-Fu.

        I just had to pop in here and let everyone who needs an illustrator know that Alberto is AMAZING to work with! You see those two covers above, in the middle? They're my partner's, and they're beautiful online and in print.

        But don't take me too seriously, because my partner still needs him, ok? ;)

        Added four new covers!

        A little preview:


        I already commented that my experience with Alberto went well, but I should also add that the cover on the far right (which is mine) was on my collection that recently hit the USA Today bestseller list. So not only did he do a great job, but it also sold books, which is, you know, fairly important.  ;)

        Oh, and I've created a paperback, which printed great, along with free bookmarks/postcards (I don't sell them; I'm not sure if the licensing agreement covers that - if you're going to create store merch, ask) from the art that I give to fans (which they enjoy). The illustrations look really sharp in print. The illustration he sent is 7490 x 4682 and 300 DPI, so that's not a surprise, but if anyone was planning on printing items, they all look great and the illustration should print cleanly without loss of fidelity.

        Anyway, my high recommendation obviously stands. Just thought I'd mention those points!

        Now it's been over a year since I joined kboards and I wanted to thank you all for the support and for the great work we've done!
        I hope this second year is even better! Thanks again to everyone!

        (Sorry if I do not thank you individually but you are really too many and I'm not very good with long-winded speeches.)

        Finally, here are a couple of covers that can come out! :D
