Design a picture of clouds in the shape of a horse

Contest Brief

Hi,

I need a picture of clouds in the shape of a horse. The horse should be strong, muscular and rearing up on its hind legs. The sky should be dark, but with a source of light (something like the attached picture of the city scape). The feel of the picture needs to be powerful and dramatic, but not scary.

In addition, the picture must have the colour red incorporated/highlighted in it - please see the pictures attached for reference.

NOTE: Please do not just use pictures from Google images and then change the colours/tones etc. Also, please do not place images of clouds over the image of a horse like a pattern.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

Thanks!

      I think it is important to have a good composition is your illustration. I hope you will choose the best. This was a great contest.

    All entrants - the pictures are too close up, if you could 'zoom out' that would be great. #9 is zoomed out but this is too much, maybe 50% closer is good. The picture will also be used in a landscape format, like the pictures provided in the brief (i.e. not square). If you could adjust your entries that would be great. Thanks

    #34 - really great. It is possible to have a higher resolution, or make the image less 'grainy'?

    #29 - really like the red, is it possible to make the horse a bit darker as it is very white, and blend the legs more into the cloud?

    #30,31,32 - Great ideas, but the horse is either too far away or a little bit unclear. If the shape was more clear and distinct that would be great. Thanks!

    #27 - good darker colour but the red of the clouds in #24 is better

    • 3 years ago
    1. GabriellaO

      Better as in the glow, not the rays of light

      Since it is a glow effect we won't get the exact same red color but a close match only. Thanks

    #23 - can the legs of the horse disappear into the clouds more and the horse's hair/mane be flapping as if in the wind?

    • 3 years ago
    1. GabriellaO

      Very good - is it possible to match the colours to those is pictures provided in the brief? The grey darker and also the red.

    #17,18 &19 - no sun in the sky, but with red light coming red behind the clouds at the bottom of the picture.

    #15 - is it possible to give the clouds at the bottom a red glow?

    • 3 years ago
  • GabriellaO
    Contest Holder
    • 3 years ago

    A red sun is too 'scary' for what we are looking for

    • 3 years ago

    #14 - good picture but the sky would need to be darker (though not black) and maybe a red light from behind the clouds?

    • 3 years ago
  • GabriellaO

    • 3 years ago

    #10 - a really great entry, but 1-star awarded because it just doesn't meet what we are looking for. The horse needs to be clouds in the shape of a horse rather than a horse shape amongst clouds. The horse also needs to be coming out of the clouds, more like #14

    Does it matter if the clouds are in the sky? Or can they be smoke clouds, dust clouds, etc. . . ?

    1. GabriellaO

      • 3 years ago

      Oops! Yes, it's preferable that the clouds are in the sky. Thanks

      #6 is really good - the shape of the horse is great. Would be good if the horse was a little bit more solid, and there is no need for a moon/water. Perhaps more clouds with the horse coming out of the clouds. Thanks!

      Thank you for the info. It's a great start as from the design software tool perspectives it tells me what to use. Could you also specify what is the product and who is the targeted customers group: ages, social status, country, market niche of products consumed by them. Whe a designer chooses a particular style, it must be appropriate to address the targeted audience, as different audiences are drawn to different visual characteristics. The more you tell us, the better the design will be.

    #1 and #5 - the overall shapes are very good, #1 is probably better. Looking for a little bit more/clouds in the picture as well. Thanks!

    Hello Gabriella. You wrote that we can't use images from Google, but..where we can take images of horse and the sky? Do you actually need illustration or photo???

    • 3 years ago
    1. GabriellaO

      • 3 years ago

      Hi Deeeniska, we do need an illustration and the images on Google and similar to what we would like, but not exact. The shape of the horses aren't quite right. I have run a previous contest where a lot of google images were just changed and the quality was not as good as we would like it.
