Entertainment & The Arts
LK Hingey is a new independent SciFi author. She currently has two books in a series published. The series is set in a post apocalyptic America, where solar activity has destroyed the ozone, and only a genetically developed human species, grafted with snake and tardigrade DNA are able to survive the radiation of the earth's surface.
What's your vision?
We are looking for an artist to work with in illustrating characters from a new SciFi book series. Target audience: SciFi readers ages 15+ You may use either of the two characters from the references book covers We would like to see these characters in the following contexts: 1. Cave setting 2. Surface of post-apocalyptic, scorched wasteland 3. At night with a borealis/Northern Lights effect. Character descriptions: Kimber: Caucasian Female; 22 years; height 5'4" blue snake-like eyes, scales cover the majority of her body, and a portion of her face as seen in the references. She wears steampunk attire, mostly leather, with sleeveless Aeneas (on the "Orion" book cover): Black Male, 22 years; height 6'1"; long locs, light-brown snake eyes, scales cover his body. Both characters wear functional clothing for exploring the austere surface; think hiking/combat boots, cargo pants, sleeveless tops. For the scales, please use the color schemes depicted in the reference photos. Designs must be 4800x7418px 300DPI (or bigger), Preferred CYMK Colors Submissions may include either one of the characters, or both if you wish!
We know it takes a lot of work to create these posters. We made some rules so that your time is not wasted and neither is ours. Please look at the attached examples; this is what we are looking for in terms of design, colors, etc. - We cannot accept unoriginal work. If it’s not yours, you will be disqualified! - We cannot accept any posters with copyright material (Think Movie Posters, etc) We are looking to reward/purchase multiple designs that fit what we are looking for, and we are absolutely seeking artists that we can continue to work with in the future!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Character or mascot starts at $349.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their character or mascot.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
jthingem collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
