Deskripsi Kontes

I am asking my girlfriend to marry me. We both love to read and lose ourselves in fairy tales. In honor of that, I would like to create a children's book describing how we met and the paths we've taken in our lives that have led us to this moment together. Before I ask her to marry me I'm going to give her this book which will end with me on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. The illustrations are what make this project really special - I'm looking for help with this important piece.

In total I will need 9, full-color illustrations for this contest. Some 8" x 10", others 8" x 20". In the attached document I have done my best to be as detailed as possible with the scenes I am looking to create. Each picture has a number and sample pictures to provide reference. Please feel free to ask questions, I am happy to provide any details necessary. Also, please feel free to take creative control and improve upon my suggestions.

I was not blessed with the skills to create beautiful pictures, but for this special occasion I am attempting to drain every ounce of creativity in my body to make her smile. I will be forever grateful if you choose to help me with this memory. Thank you.

**Update**
For the cover illustration, the girl cheerleader should have white, low-cut shoes. Please see attachment for detailed info on the project.
I do not have much experience with art. I have attached a few examples of illustrations that I like, but I'm open to all different styles.

To clarify an earlier question, you do not need to submit all 9 illustrations at once. You can choose any of the 9 scenes to use as your sample. Assuming you can guarantee that the remaining images will be of the same quality, I will pick my favorite and we can complete the remaining scenes to finish the contest.

Again, I am very grateful for your time and consideration with this contest. Thank You! All the best!

    Hello, what a sweet idea! I would be interested in entering but I'd really appreciate it if you could give me an indication of whether I'd have a chance before making the entry. Of course, I'm aware that it will only be an indication, but I'm quite busy this weekend, so making time for this would be wasteful if I don't stand a chance at all.

    My profile picture is a representation of the kind of comics/illustration work that I do most often.

    You've done a great job of the pdf description, by the way. It's so nice to see a project on here that is well-researched and described!

    Best luck with your proposal, whether or not you find my style suitable. Many thanks for your time.

      I managed to squeeze in a quick entry before the deadline (35). I realised after the fact that you requested for the rugby ball to be in his hand (rather than under his arm). Sorry for this oversight, but I could easily rectify this if needed. Likewise, colours could be changed :). The couple could also be larger in the image if you liked (which is something I began working on as an alternative before I ran out of time. It's quite late here, so the deadline is basically now for me.)

      If I am chosen then in the future we can discuss similar things while the pages are in progress. It seems from the pdf that you have quite a strong vision for the book and I'd like to work with you to have that matched as closely as possible!

      Best,

      Natalie

    Thank you very much to everyone who has submitted projects. The majority of these illustrations have been absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, some of them just weren't the right style for this project. After seeing some of the work submitted, I think it would be best to have more of a "cartoony" look. Some of the work submitted has been very detailed and has looked amazing, but just hasn't looked too much like the real characters. I understand how difficult it is to do portraits for every scene, so I am completely open to other less detailed versions of the characters. Thanks again to everyone who has participated in this contest, I'm truly amazed by your talents!

    I would kindly ask for a clarification: will the remaining 8 illustrations be additionally paid or you expect the winner to deliver a package of 9 for the prize amount? This is important for me, as I don't really care for 5 minute computer art. I work by hand and my illustrations are very detailed and time consuming. Thanks.

    This is the most thoughtful and unique proposal I have ever seen. I have no doubt that your girlfriend will be surprised, extremely happy and equally impressed with your creativeness. Warm wishes to you both. May you have a lifetime of love, romance, laughter, and joy.

      Hi mate. You're a very romantic/passionate guy, wich is great for a mad, technologically driven world. I can do the 9 illustrations for $ 240, but that is far too much work to submit for a contest. I can submit 1 (cover or other) so you can see style / technique / feeling. Guaranteed all work with same quality. May i suggest traditional techniques / soft pencils / pastels etc? plse. answer if you agree to start working on the first illustration.

      Thanks for your comment and suggestion. Yes, that sounds good to me. I will select my favorite artist based on their submitted illustration of the book's cover. If it is a really tough decision maybe I will ask for one more illustration to help me decide. Once the artist wins the contest they can create the remaining illustrations with the understanding the images will be of the same quality. Really excited to see everyone's results. Thanks!

    Are you going to provide the story in your contest brief? Then tell us where you would like to insert the picture and what the picture should be about? It's an awesome idea. All the best.

      Thanks for the question and for your compliment. I tried to cover each of the scenes in the attached pdf. Not too worried about placing the story's text, I'm just going to find a small section on each of the illustrations to overlay a textbox.
