Contest Brief

Hi all,

First of all, excuse me for my bad english.

I need an illustration for my ebook, english edition, which will be published under the title "I did it for the lulz". The book has been already published in italian under the title "Il mondo di Lulz", Attached you can find the actual cover image. It is about a love story between Lulz, a young hacker, and Giulia, a young student keen of astrology. Lulz builds a false astrology web site to spy Giulia and steal her personal informations. But the web site is so good engineered that all the people around Giulia come into the trap, and Lulz becomes the "hand of fate" that causes incidents and unveil betrayals, tricks and other facts. But soon he loses the control because of the affection for Giulia which grows too quick.

I'd like an illustration based on the actual cover image attached, better if you can add some sensual detail, showing for example a beautiful girl chatting.
I need a high resolution image (1,6 ratio at least 1000x1600) in JPG or TIFF format.

Thank you,
Antonio

    Very nice illustration DragonFlamely, even if the girl on the bed by umby is my preferred. Tomorrow I will choose. Thank you all, again.

    So guys, we are next to the end of the contest. I really like originality of #28. I've asked some tweaks, though.
    Also very nice #25, we will see.

    any interest in a constellation background? I think that coupled with the pixel text will make a nice symbolic cover. If you like that idea I can work more on it tomorrow. Gotta get some sleep!

    Possible variant: a dragon surrounding a yin yang sphere made of stars, based on the Linux Backtrack logo: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-kFasyIhIQnQ/Tw5Tm-SfPpI/AAAAAAAABZc/di20FjVH_XY/s400/linux-backtrack.jpg

    #5 is the right direction for illustration (I prefer) or #1 for photo assembly

    should it be an actual drawing? a photomanipulation?
