Green Witch-themed Art for Erotica Book Cover

  • Status: Closed
  • Prize: $150
  • Entries Received: 4
  • Winner: gradynelson

Contest Brief

I am an author in need of an original piece of art for the cover of a new book. Background should include a full moon and abandoned (haunted) house at night. Main subject is a sexy green-skinned witch wearing a black teddy with corset-style top. Busty, with jet black hair and no hat. Burgandy lips and yellow cat eyes with long black fingernails. Standing, sitting, or any other posture is fine. Pose should be suggestive and revealing but must not include full nudity.

I have included a reference image for the subject. Please disregard background material and do not include a witch's hat in your submission. This is a reference ONLY, please feel more than free to put your own spin on it within the parameters I have previously listed.

This book is the first in a series and more work will be needed for additional covers in the future. Thank you!

    sorry if I sound rude but I know these guys, I have been working here for years. the vast majority of them are just trying to steal your money using stolen images from the web, they don't deserve your respect. they just deserve to be rejected. you have a couple of real artists here. go with them. or if you choose to reject all the scammers I can resubmit my entry and also finish it. not enough money but good subject. in any case good luck to you, it seems like a fun book!

    if you reverse image check, you'll be surprise that most of the entries are copied/stolen from the net. Try using Yandex.com or Tineye.com to spot these artists wannabes

      yeah but these guys had improved themselves on their scam business. they can use ps filters and adjust colors so sometimes you need to grayscale, lasso crop or clean the image to be able to track it down. btw yandex image is the best on image searching. actualy there is a lot more easier way for spotting them. just go to the freelancer's profile and see the portfolio and etc.. follow the leads and you going to have a sharp guess of that profile could be a scammer or not.

      Thank you. It is really quite difficult as a non-artist to tell who is legit and who is just piecing something together illegally. Very frustrating.

    Contest Update: I have no intention of ending this contest early, so please take your time and submit your best work. Thank you in advance for your creativity and diligence.

    Also, don't forget to use the reference picture provided in the project description as a guide, along with taking a look at the top-rated entries so far, to get an idea of what I'm looking for.

    Some of you have asked about dimensions. I would prefer something close to a 5:8 aspect ratio (5 units wide by 8 units tall) but this is not a requirement.

    Additionally, working some space in on the sides, top, and bottom, would be helpful to me in adding the book title and other text later on. If you are selected as the winner and are able to provide a PSD with independent layers, that could also be helpful to me, but again, none of this is a requirement.

    Thank you all and good luck!

    • 4 months ago
    1. codyraymiller

      • 4 months ago

      The book cover will end up having an aspect ration of 5 (wide) by 8 (tall). If your submission has plenty of extra room though, it will help me position the art for the cover. Thank you!!

      Thank you for your feedback. I'm a struggling author. This was all I could afford at the moment. Hopefully, I can increase the prize for future contests. How much would you suggest increasing the prize amount by for something like this? Thanks again!
