Contest Brief

I'm looking for a designer to illustrate a book cover for eBook and Print publishing. It is in the fantasy genre and I have attached artwork from similar designs that I like.

** Please note this must be an original illustration, stock images or other people's art is not acceptable, thanks. **

Synopsis:
This story is about a young women's journey from the modern-day world, who is thrust into a confusing medieval world filled with magic, fantasy, royalty and danger.

Designs Ideas:
Two ideas I had for the image are:
- #1 a frail slender young woman, dressed simply ie long white nightgown/dress, sitting on an oversized ornate gothic throne. Her face should be turned, semi-profile. She should appear upset, frightened. The throne will dwarf her and the background could be a simply shadows or a room cast into shadow. She is beautiful.
- #2 a crucible with green smoke and fire underneath.

Or your ideas incorporating include one or more image components:
- a fragile female women in her late 20's: a petite frame with long dark hair.
- an empty throne
- a smoking crucible
- a crown, next to or on the floor by the figure

Title:
The World of Evendaar
The Hidden Child
Book One

Text (back cover, quotes, ISBN etc):
Once a winner is selected we'll provide you with the complete textual details to be included on the cover (to be included in the winning bid price).

Colors & Style:
The cover should have dark, gothic style, and include main colors of black, grey, and green (such as [url removed, login to view]) and other colors as the designer requires.

Size:
Most likely 140mm (width) x 216mm (height) (i.e. 5.5″ x 8.5″), unknown depth at this point but assume 30mm (1.2″) with a background that could overflow onto a bigger area if it's deeper.

Delivery:
The resulting file should be delivered in PDF (vector) and PSD (layered) formats.

    im sorry im confused, i would imagine that a lot of people myself included would not have submitted there work yet as the contest was scheduled to end tomorrow. This is nothing against the winners work both designs are great i just find this odd considering it would benefit you more than anyone else to at least wait to see everyone's work. Can we still submit work? ?

    Thank you so much to everyone who has entered the competition to date. The quality of work submitted was absolutely wonderful and as a result I've chosen to award two winners today. Though some of you did not manage to meet the brief completely for this competition the amount of talent and creativity you showed me in your work was just extraordinary. Good luck to everyone on their future endeavours and thank you all for participating.

    For this project, are you looking for something realistic? Or can it be vector cartoon type art?

    1. evendaar

      I am absolutely looking for something realistic. It doesn't strictly have to be photo realistic but it does have to be beautiful. Thank you for your query.

    I wanted to let everyone know that I have just updated the brief with a more detailed description of what is required for this competition. I have received lots of amazing images and realized that my description needed to be clearer on two minor points. Thank you to everyone for your great work so far and I look forward to seeing the end results. Regards, Evendaar

    Hi there, I'm wondering if you could describe what the throne is made out of? What sort of substance? What exactly does it look like? Or you might end up with just a bunch of swords from people, or something spikey made from cheese xD (serious question though!)

    • 3 years ago
    1. evendaar

      • 3 years ago

      Simple answer is, no. I will only buy the rights to the image that eventually wins the contest. All other entrants' work will remain their own, to do with as they wish.
