Yarışma Özeti

EDIT: Added pictures for examples of Victorian dresses.

I am looking for color character concept art to be used as a book cover. The characters \ elements to be included in the cover are:

EG - female, mid-30s, tall \ flat-chested, with olive-skin and long dark hair styled up in a bun; wears a high-necked victorian dress (or skirt and blouse) and boots - holds a pistol in one hand and keeps another at her hip (flintlocks); in her other hand, she holds a lantern which functions as a faerie's cage \ emits an eerie glow.

AW - 50s; very big guy, broad-shouldered, tall, etc; built like a linebacker. Keeps a two-handed sword on his back; wears leather armor, breeches, and boots; handlebar moustache. He helped raise Evelyn from the time she was a little girl, and is always close behind or at her side.

The Creature (optional) - a monstrous insect with a greenish-black carapace, a "primordial nightmare of antennae, chitin, and clacking mandibles"

"Greycoats" (optional) - city watch members in barbutes and breastplates, with rifles, spears, or swords, may be carrying a lantern or torch

"Bluecoats" (optional) - laborers, equipped with tools such as shovels, pickaxes, etc; may be carrying a lantern or torch.

Scene Options:
1) an underground cavern with tunnels and light, accessed via shaft above. Carved into the walls are grinning frog-faced statues with fat bellies, like little Lovecraft Buddhas. Optionally, elements of an ancient, buried Greco-Roman city may be visible embedded in the walls as well (columns, arches, etc.)

2) "The Chamber of Eyes" - entering a massive underground cavern \ chamber, with a Greco-Roman Temple in the center; the walls are covered in eyes - these are open to interpretation; they may be carved from stone, or may be formed by monstrous insects curled up into an stylized eye-shape.

3) "The Estate" - at night, outside a large estate in a city with a distinctly "medieval German" vibe; lanterns or torches for illumination, etc. Characters should be approaching the estate.

    I don't have any drawing ability, so I cannot enter this contest; however, I am also a major steampunk lover, so I stopped by to say that this work sounds amazing. Would love to follow your progress, if you have a website or SM pages I could follow.

      I am leaning realistic on this, but am open. A pulp comic vibe would also work.

      Your art style is absolutely fine - there is also a strong possibility that will be putting out another call for black & white illustrations for the interior, where a pulp \ comic book style would shine.

    Hi. I don't understand where to put the creature in the scenes

      The creature is optional. If doing the underground scene, it could be emerging from a darkened tunnel, barely visible; if doing "The Chamber of Eyes" it could be on the walls in the distance, or in the temple, or wherever. If doing "The Estate" it would not need to appear, or could appear in the distance crawling around a house or something.

      The creature, greycoats, and bluecoats, are just optional components an artist could include in the illustration if desired; the only two critical "characters" are EG and AW.

    What are the exact dimensions of the book? Also I presume there should be left room for the title/author?

      The book is 6" x 9" - this would be best approached as a standalone piece of artwork; a little extra "background" room around the edges so there's some play when it comes to positioning might be useful.

    I need to re-confirm your brief.
    You're looking for a Illustration to be use as book cover. With 1 of 3 scenes you provided. The Illustration should have 2 main character, other are optional.
    So this is 1 Illustration right ?

      That is correct.
