3rd Update: Here is an example of a good hair style for the Asian woman illustration: [login to view URL]

2nd Update: Creative design elements as showcased in the current 5-star entries #35, #33, #13 and #38. EYEGLASSES: The eyeglasses are to be small, round, metal-framed eyeglasses. Entries 35, 33 and 38 are perfect. Entry 13 eyeglasses lenses are too large. NIGHT SCENE: The overall scene must provide a feeling of it being night. Entries 35, 33 and 38 all fulfill this requirement. Entry 13 could maybe add a little more shadow to provide a better sense of night look. ATTRACTIVE / SLENDER FACE: Entries 35, 33, 13 and 38 all fulfill this goal. RED LIPS: This is not a requirement, but red lips helps bring attention to the image, especially with a night scene look. Entries 35, 33 and 13 all have done the lips really well. Entry 38 does not feature red lips, but actually this is probably for the best, as this submission is very strong visually with great use of color in other areas.

1st Update: I have attached a JPEG image (blurred background photo of Hong Kong) that can be used, if desired as a background for the illustration of the Asian woman with dark, round sunglasses. Another comment, the woman needs to look ATTRACTIVE, but mysterious (only the city elements would be dirty, gritty, if added to the illustration). Another comment, submitting the woman illustration with a transparent background is OK (as I can add the background later). The woman could be either in black & white or color. Probably best NOT to make her photo-realistic, but rather like a drawing. Keep the lens on the eyeglasses small, as the small rounded dark lens give the woman a more artsy, smart look (which I prefer). Don't worry about putting reflections into the lens of the eyeglasses, as that can be done later. Also many of the recent submissions feature the text "Lost Chopsticks" but don't use that text, only use / add "HongKonglicious" text, as that is what we will use.

I have a small film series that need to have a visually cool looking art illustration / image for the film’s poster. I would like this poster to be an illustration, very stylized and moody.

The visual concept of this poster would include the following:
1. Closeup of Asian woman face with dark round sunglasses looking directing at viewer. I want the face to be mysterious, moody, partially in shadow so that it is hard to tell who the woman is (mysterious).
2. The image / illustration looks to be at night, maybe along a city street or alleyway. Blurred background or no background is OK.
3. The main “focus” of the illustration should be on the Dark, Round, Sunglasses.

Reference material:
Here are some images links for mood & style reference:

Additional creative ideas / comments:
Might be a good idea to hide a little of the face by using the woman's long black hair. Here is an sample image that uses the model's hair to add more "mystery" to the image (though maybe too much hair is used, but you get the idea):

Here is an episode of the short film for reference: [login to view URL]

Basic notes: The short film series has a revolving cast of young actors with the storylines dealing with lifestyle issues in Hong Kong. Basically the film poster illustration would reflect a dystopian mood of a woman in a gritty, dark Asian city. I might feature the words / text of “Hong” and “Kong” on each lens of her sunglasses. Also the film’s title would be display somewhere in the lower third area of the poster image. This illustration would be used on [login to view URL] for the film’s thumbnail image / poster art, thus it is important that the illustration is a closeup of the Asian Woman’s face since these thumbnails can be rather small. Overall visual style is to be dark and moody. Illustration art size: 2400x3200 pixels in PNG or JPEG format.

      Regarding entry #46. Nice work, I gave it a 4-star rating. What I like about your entry is the flowing hair. Good job. Don't worry about adding text "HongKonglicious", as that will be done later. The white face needs some skin color, otherwise she looks too much like a white woman (we need a Chinese look). The eyeglasses need more development. The background does not work, try replacing with the "Blurred HK Background" image provided in the project brief.

    Best to keep the Woman's mouth / lips closed. Don't show teeth or open mouth.

    Entry #38 by manytcnj is really an excellent artwork that really incorporates some visually strong design elements. First, this woman is in Hong Kong at night as the artist really blended my background image (supplied as a download to this contest) with his drawing. That really helps, as the background image is large (i.e… provides cropping room for later aspect ratio needs). Here the eyeglasses are perfect. The eyebrows are perfect. The lips are perfect. The hair highlights are very well done as they help blend the lighting sources of the background onto the woman’s face / hair (giving the impression she is really on the streets of Hong Kong). Just two minor issues with his image, the text “vicious” needs to be removed as it does not fit into our film title needs. Also the nose seems a little crooked. Overall, this is an excellent entry that really uses color well for a moody night scene. This was done by a very talented artist.

    Entry #13 by Darwiencruz is a very excellent painting of the woman’s face, hair, nose and lips. The reflections in the glass lenses are excellent. There are two issues of concern about this entry, first the lens on the eyeglasses need to be smaller (and preferably wire-framed eyeglasses). Second, the background might reduce my options for cropping. This image could work for my needs if the artist could replace the current background with the background image I have supplied (he/she could adjust the background so that it fits the painting style of their artwork). All in all, this is a very strong entry by a very talented artist.

      Really excellent work. You did read and interpreted the directions very well. The eyeglasses are perfect (right round shape and small petite size of the lens on her face... gives her a sophisticated look). Good use of the hair to partially hide a little of her face. There is a zebra strip light pattern on her forehead that is a bit distracting. I would need to add a blurred background just to give the impression the woman is outside, the one version you used with the background was too strong, overtaking the image of the woman. But overall, excellent work!

      Entry #35 really provides that mystery woman look. Excellent face structure, eyeglasses, nose, lips and nice use of hair that partially hides a little of the woman’s face. The problem areas that concern me on this entry are the following; since the face / hair are surrounded by black, I am unable to see if this image will composite well with a background (i.e… does this design have a complete head, hair along the borders or is elements of the head missing like shown in the super-imposed version of this same image in Entry #34). Also the zebra light pattern on the woman’s forehead is distracting. Also the skintone is a bit too ghostly white, just a touch of skin color is needed (not much, just a little).

    I am going to provide feedback on my current 5-star selections, as they best represent the creative design elements needed. The current 5-star entries are #35, #33, #13 and #38. EYEGLASSES: The eyeglasses are to be small, round, metal-framed eyeglasses. Entries 35, 33 and 38 are perfect. Entry 13 eyeglasses lenses are too large. NIGHT SCENE: The overall scene must provide a feeling of it being night. Entries 35, 33 and 38 all fulfill this requirement. Entry 13 could maybe add a little more shadow to provide a better sense of night look. ATTRACTIVE / SLENDER FACE: Entries 35, 33, 13 and 38 all fulfill this goal. RED LIPS: This is not a requirement, but red lips helps bring attention to the image, especially with a night scene look. Entries 35, 33 and 13 all have done the lips really well. Entry 38 does not feature red lips, but actually this is probably for the best, as this submission is very strong visually with great use of color in other areas.

      Regarding entry 39, I do like how the black hair flows to the bottom of the image, as this bottom area then is black which would allow us to place the film's titles and text information (black area makes it great for us, as white text really stands out on black). Two comments, the eyeglass lens are too big. Also the right side of the woman's face seems a little too round due to the way the hair curves around her face, if the hair came down a little more straight it would help solve this issue. Also would be nice to reveal a little more chin and jaw-line as these can help reveal her elegant facial features. The RED in the lips is good. A strong entry.

      Hi Craig05 thanks for your valuable comments and we will be updating with your changes, but this time we will make the art work more detailed while applying your preferences. Small doubt, if you are still waiting for more concepts then it is fine,else we are waiting for your call for further development.

    Comments on entry 38 by manytcnj: Excellent work. The eyeglasses are the perfect style and size. The woman's face is attractive. Great eyebrows, nice lips (maybe the nose is just slightly crooked). I also really like the highlights in the woman's hair, as it blends her into the scene / background nicely. Very well done. Would need to remove the "licious" text, as it does not fit our titling needs. Also really like the use of the two colors / two tones in this work. Fantastic submission!

      I would need to review the image first, and get details on pricing and licensing terms. So probably best to avoid using stock images.
