Contest Brief

I am looking for Menu Background Art for my Video Game. Specifically I am looking for an artwork that is suitable as a background for the title screen, character select screen, and other menus in the video game.

This video game is like chess with Werewolves, Ninjas, and Dragons. In the game players choose 9 characters and then move their Characters around a chess-like board to outmaneuver and defeat their opponents. There are 20+ characters to choose from, and the characters available for selection change over time. For this artwork I would like you to draw a picture of various characters partying in a street fair or carnival setting. Please include the following characters for this artwork: Unicorn, Dragon, Witch (flying on a broomstick), Flying Pig, and Prince Charming. Including additional characters in the artwork is encouraged. A list of additional character ideas is attached to this document. Feel free to choose your own character ideas for the artwork. Characters in this game are iconic literary figures that appear in multiple/classic literary works. Examples include Leperchauns, Mummies, Wizards, Loch Ness Monster, Monkey King, etc. I attached some of the designs currently in the game for reference.

For artstyle aim for colorful over realistic. Also aim for a style of "capturing a moment" instead of "posing for a picture". I recommend "The Wave" as reference artwork for the desired artstyle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Wave_off_Kanagawa#/media/File:Tsunami_by_hokusai_19th_century.jpg .

Artwork must be 100% original, and after purchase I must have 100% full and exclusive rights to the artwork, including for commercial use. Final artwork must be a digital png file with 10240 W x 6000 H dimensions.

My timeline for this project is two weeks. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your consideration!

    Dera Holder, can you share some examples of what type of design you are looking for?
    An example is very helpful for designers to understand what you really want!

      I don't have any sample artworks of my own to share, for a reference for the artstyle I recommend the wave: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Wave_off_Kanagawa . I added some silhouettes of characters currently in the game so you could get a general feel for the character drawing style

      I'll make sure not to take up too much of your time. I want to see people's style before I hire the person on a more regular basis

    So hey, like so do you want us to create new characters or are the character designs already set?

      I actually have a lot of the character designs drawn out for the actual game pieces. For this project I'd like to create a menu background. Right now I am using a blank teal background which but I'd like something more thematic. Essentially I want a picture of various game characters interacting with each other, almost like their partying. I'm thinking something like the covers for some fighting games or movie posters/ covers that show the main characters+ some scenic background/ event from the movie

      Cartoonish in color scheme and texture, realistic in proportions. I am thinking something like "The Wave" for a famous artwork reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Wave_off_Kanagawa
