Okay, here’s a pretty problem, especially for folks like me who self-publish. How do you handle getting cover art for your books? Who are your favorite artists, if any? Given it can cost $50 just to get a sketch from a good furry artist, what do you consider a reasonable price for color artwork and cover designs?
For myself, over the years I’ve been pretty damned lucky. My first (non-furry) cover art was courtesy of Peta Hewitt who provided basically for free since she was happy that the story was inspired by some of her previous art.
The covers for Captive of the Red Vixen and Shadow of the Red Vixen were courtesy of Meg Syverud. Shadow was a commission, and Captive was again a gift, because she thought my Photoshopped first effort was so crappy it annoyed her enough that she gave me something better. I used to be able to hire her for $50 (or the occasional LoZ hoodie) since she was in her starving college student days, but she’s since moved on to be a professional storyboard artist for Warner Brothers Animation and is well out of my price range now ($500 minimum, when last year all my books made a grand total of $378)
So how do you handle getting cover art?
 You can’t just use regular Amazon shipping to send Sunstone comics to Saudi Arabia. Go figure…
