Yarışma Özeti

This is a contest to create one illustration for the attached appendix of my science fiction novel ‘Baktu’. I ultimately want seven illustrations for this appendix. This contest will only provide me with one illustration, and with a bid and proposal for a freelancer.com project to create the remaining six.

I hope for your help.

Your contest entry will have two components:
1. An illustration of one of the seven types of bakti (non-human) people mentioned in the attached appendix.
2. A bid and proposal to illustrate the the other six types.
After the contest I will select one winner based on both their art and on their proposal. The winner will be awarded the contest prize, then I will create a new freelancer project for the other illustrations and immediately offer (award) the project to the contest winner. Please do not enter this contest if you are not interested in creating all seven illustrations in the following project.

The novel takes place on the planet Baktu. The indigenous people here come in seven types, as described in the appendix. The seven types are:
• Typical male
• Typical female
• Kaziter (female)
• Kazimon stage 1 (female)
• Kazimon stage 2 (female)
• Kazimon stage 3 (female)
• Kazimon stage 4 (female)
I would prefer a female be chosen for the contest entry.

Illustration requirements:
✓ At least 300 dpi (dots per inch)
✓ At least two square inches big (1” x 2”, 2” x 1”, 1.5” x 1.5”, or other).
✓ Have clothing or at least underwear on them. No erotic poses.
✓ Preferably one of the female types for the contest.
✓ It must not contradict the appendix description.
✓ Indicate in the comments which bakti type the illustration is for.
✓ Color or monochrome. Color preferred.
✓ Should represent the quality and style you would do if you won the next project

Project proposal requirements:
✓ Include your fixed price for the whole project (not including this contest)
✓ Include the time frame of when you would complete the project.
✓ Any other details, like larger size or availability for additional related projects, is welcome.

    Thank you for all the wonderful entries and art samples. I feel guilty for awarding only one winner when many of you supplied great art, and in some cases great effort. I hope none of you are offended at not being chosen since I hope to use many of you in my chapter illustrations project to come. Price was a factor in the star ratings.

      Good to know, I guess I should have presented a more risky proposal... at least this was a fun contest.

    After the appendix is done to my satisfaction, I expect that art to be the biological standard of what the bakti people are, so that different artists can create compatible chapter illustrations. The appendix will not be the art style standard or art type standard. You would do the illustration in your own style hopefully as described in the book and chapter. You may add your name or signature to the art as long as it is not too distracting. I will acknowledge each artist on the acknowledgment page, with your real name or freelancer name as you prefer, and the chapter number(s) you did.

    I am going to let the contest run the full length (two days left) before I award the winner(s) for fear there are some people putting in effort to create a nice contest entry and have not yet entered it. I am not willing to extend the contest longer though. I have received many excellent entries to choose from. Even the four star ones are good. Except for one mistake, I have not been giving star ratings until the price bid and time estimate are included. I need that for my decision. Thank you all for your work.

    Hi, i've read the description in the file and still i'm kinda in the dark about the race's overall apperiance. I know, it's kind of tricky to relay it through text, so i was just gonna ask: how many liberties should i take while designing a bakti? Do they look distinctly alien or do they look a lot like humans? And also, what form should their ears have?

      Biologically, they look a lot like humans with the following exceptions: green skin, ears are merely bulges with no orifice, hair is dark green, hands and feet are somewhat bigger, no nipples. I believe that is it. The eye color is somewhat different as explained in the appendix.

    what sort of an art style are you going for? semi realistic? If you don't mind, could you put up a link or two of art that you would like to see

      Something semi-realistic. As far as the style, one reason for this contest is so I can see what style I like, and what is available. I think realistic cartoon or fantasy art would work. Even black and white, depending on price and quality. Here is a link to one of the art styles I like: http://daliborgaric.deviantart.com/art/Forever-is-over-420584730

    hi, just one question. do you need full body illustrations? or it will be ok also a medium close-up illustration?

    thanks

      I prefer full body illustrations because of the educational purpose of the appendix. However it should be okay if some of them are just most of the body. As long as others in the final project do show feet and legs also.

    Hi. One question, please: What level of detail would serve the purpose? (for the characters illustration) Thank you

      That depends on the price you propose. I would like lots of detail unless it costs too much, so I will likely settle for less detail. I am not an illustrator so I don't know how to measure detail and give you a precise number, but it all depends on what I can afford.

    When this contest is done, and resulting project started, I expect to do the same sort of thing (contest/project) to illustrate my chapter headers. That is tentative, depending on how much I spend on this project, and whether I find another illustrator or the same winner from this contest that can do that also in a timely manner.

    Also, since the main character, a human, falls in love with a stage three kazimon that he tries to cure, it would probably be good not to have her be extremely hideous (though she should be muscular and even intimidating). Stage 4 can be as ugly as you want.
