View Full Version : Request: Romance novel type poses

Yeah, strange request but I thought I'd try to illustrate those romance novels and I can't just use the paintings that are already on the covers as references to paint from because a puplisher that I send a portfolio to might say, 'hey, that's the same as Pink Wind.'

How about THIS ONE (http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/showphoto.php?photo=35046&sort=1&cat=500&page=4) , for starters?

Thank you. You obviously do not read romance novels ;)

Actually, I think that would be a great cover. Romance novels aren't about clinch covers anymore.

There's a lot more variety than that. A lot of really simple pictures, and cartoony drawings. Sweet covers of couples just sitting around enjoying being together. You should check out sxc.hu though, they have some more couple photos you could work from.
