Illustrate for Pandora Chronicles

Contest Brief

I need a fantasy book cover of a young Scottish woman with red hair and one green eye and one brown, with magical abilities, the book is set in the early 1300's (So make sure things are of the correct time period) and she travels all over the world learning magic. Things to possibly incorporate are an alchemists table, an Egyptian scene with her in it (possibly temples), or a very large tree house with many bridges and walkways to other buildings.
She also has a huge white tiger and a small capuchin monkey with white hands. I would like both of her animals to be included somehow.

If I like your work, I may ask you to illustrate the full book, and the following 6 books, 3 of which are already written. At THAT point a disclosure will need to be signed as you will at that point also be required to read the story. You will get illustration credit for the entire book, not just the cover. These are unpublished as of yet.


Update: A little more info... Her hair is very long, past her waist...more feminine clothing style. If you look up Capuchin monkeys, their mostly black with white features. Preferably realistic in style, I would like the character to look very real, but it is a fantasy book, so some aspects can be a bit more whimsical. She comes from a big family, and she snuck away when she was about 10 to avoid persecution for the fact she has magic. She is very independent, headstrong, and stubborn. Always carries herself with her head held high, but doesn't think she is better than anyone else. Always helps those in need, and loves children...She should be around 20 in the illustration. Very beautiful, and vibrant.

    I'd love to illustrate for your book. I an send you a composite sketch of the character. I'd just like to know a little more about her personality/style/lifestyle and the help with the concept and feeling. You can look at some of my older work on my profile. I can also send some of my current work that has not been uploaded yet. Thanks for your time! I'd love to draw for you!

    So err anyone who wins, will get to work with you on this graphic novel?! It's going to be a long term project? You said you MAY hire the one who wins, does that mean you're not really looking for someone who can illustrate the entire book for you and just want someone who can finish the front cover of your book for just 30$???

    • 3 years ago
    1. squiett

      • 3 years ago

      It's not a graphic novel, but there are some things I would like illustrated within it before I publish, however if I don't find the right illustrator I will continue the publishing process without them. "May" hire someone long term if I love their work and want to continue working with them. I have been burned on the front cover before, and so my budget has been mostly depleted, the $30 is what I can currently offer as I have been trying to find an illustrator and have had to put off publishing for over 4 years now.

    Hello Thank you very much for your feedback. I've taken your comments into account so your character is now a smiling woman with a corset with floral pattern on it. She is also wearing a long cloak. Now my question is: do you prefer cartoon colors which are vivid or more "oil painting" ones which are light ?

    Hi there, i'm really interested in your work because i love books about magic. I really would love to illustrate your book.
    I'm gonna start working on it right know. But i have some questions about it. For example how long is her hair? In which style do you want her clothes, do you want her to look feminine or tomboy or tomb raider style? And also which is the color of the rest of the body of the monkey?
    And the last question is can the illustration be in a realistic style? Or do you have any preference?

    What kind of magic she does?
    To find out if I can add something to the illustration that references that

      She can manipulate elements, and has more natural magic's, but she does use a floating sphere that she can manipulate into other objects.
