Contest Brief:PARANORMAL COMEDY: THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED ORGANS
I am looking for an illustrator to produce a coloured drawing/painting of the two main characters of a paranormal comedy short story I am writing.
One character is a white woman in her mid-thirties, tall and skinny with unkempt peroxide-blond hair sitting high on her head (a kind of loose beehive, with wisps of hair escaping out to the sides). She is wearing a navy blazer (slightly too large for her), a baggy knitted jumper and a pair of blue jeans. She is a paranormal investigator and is carrying an over-the-top looking device (a little like an old-fashioned large remote controller for a toy car, with antenna and buttons and switches) and perhaps has a satchel or bag over her shoulder. She is wearing oversized hipster style nerd glasses, which slide down her small button nose.
The other character is a thirty-seven year old white man of medium height and carrying a little extra weight. He has brown hair and a full, trimmed beard. He is wearing a white shirt, the top button undone and the tie loosened and a pair of black suit trousers and black shoes.
***Winner will be given the option of having a link to their website included in the published story/stories on Amazon***
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BASED ON ILLUSTRATORS' QUERIES:
Some other ideas: Perhaps the two could be standing back-to-back with some sort of portal to the beyond in the background.
A full illustration is ideally what I am after -- one that includes both figures described in the brief standing back-to-back or beside one another with some sort of portal or vortex behind them. The story includes monsters and ghosts, etc so the portal could have creepy things coming out of it if you think it looks better: tentacles, eyeballs, glowing red eyes. Just a thought!
I need a portrait oriented jpeg image of at least 625 x 1000 pixels.
UPDATE (Mon 7th Oct):
I continue to be blown away by the quality of the entries. Here are some of the criteria I am taking into account when comparing the entries so far:
(i) The age of the characters -- do they look in their mid-thirties?
(ii) The woman's hair -- is it a little comical and piled high on her head, as well as being untidy?
(iii) The device the woman is holding -- is it large and clunky with antenna and possibly glowy bits? Is it obvious it's a piece of equipment and not a mobile phone?
(iv) Character stances -- do they look dynamic or is there a sort of comical interaction between the two?
(v) The portal -- does it catch the eye? Does it allow the characters to stand out and not disappear into the background? Does it represent the world the the paranormal?
(vi) Thumbnail -- does the illustration stand out when viewed as a thumbnail. I want it to be eye catching to someone browsing the Amazon store.
(vii) Clothes -- are they depicted as described in the brief?

When I think of the female character's hair, I imagine something similar to this image, only frizzier: http://hisvorpal.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/b52.jpg
