Artwork contest (update May 1)
Create an original artwork illustration in the style of Clint Eastwood, the gun toting cowboy from the movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales." Your entry (hereafter just "artwork" for simplicity) in the western pop art style or similar art style suitable for printing and as a company logo. The artwork will be used as a logo for the brand Gunslinger, but the required higher quality level of art and creativity makes this contest more than just a logo design project. There are two pdf files you will need to review. In the file "contest," you will find a still picture from the movie and two illustrations as examples of art we like. In the file "like2", we asked the judges to identify art and graphic design that they liked and felt might apply to this contest. This file is provided to give insight into the minds of the judges only. As the artwork will serve as a logo, it must include the word "Gunslinger."
Pick a still or frame of actor Clint Eastwood from the movie The Outlaw Josey Wales. The selected still must include Clint holding pistols. Review the file "contest" for two examples of work that we really like.
Artwork must be original. Style may be western pop art, modern art, illustration, Sin City or Punisher comic book style, etc. The character you create does NOT have to photo realistically resemble Clint Eastwood. He should be easily identifiable as a powerful, foreboding figure from the 1800s, western movie cowboy character and he must be holding guns. The artwork will be reproduced on a bottle and as a logo. Every submission must have a 2 color version. Colors should be limited to no more than 5. For example, if your artwork has 4 colors, submit a 4 color version and a 2 color version. The artwork will be approximately 3 inches by 3 inches or smaller and will be part of a label 3 inches wide by 7 inches high. Small detail does not reproduce well on a label, so consider this as well. Fine lines do not reproduce well on a label, so consider this too.
Gunslinger text. The artwork is to include the word "Gunslinger." The text may be completely separate spatially from the artwork or may be incorporated (where the text is part of the artwork and/or superimposed over part of the artwork and/or integral to the artwork) into the artwork. Note that if the text is incorporated into the artwork, you should submit two versions for judging. One version should include your artwork without text. The second version should include the text. The text should be appropriate with the theme of the artwork.
The artwork must be original. The winner will get the full prize and will in turn provide full and unlimited commercial use of artwork with no restrictions. If entry submitted contains a watermark or is not high quality, a high quality version must be provided prior to contest award. For the selected winning entry, additional design revisions may be required prior to payout of contest award.
