Contest Brief

Recruiter Recommended.
I originally posted this as a project, but I saw so many wonderful people offer, that I wanted to see what each could do, so this is now a contest, meaning I will put more detail into this description.

Attached is a picture, please use it as a guide, but do not weigh heavily upon its example. It is a bit simpler than what I would like to see.

Here is what I need. I need a picture like this one, but of a woman. She is to be the "Reluctant Hero" of our story so she should look "unconfident" in her stance, arms crossed in despair, or maybe even huddled crying, as her shadow stands tall and proud behind her, perhaps with a cape (not a deal breaker otherwise, as i don;t think our "hero" will actually wear a cape in the story). The shadow would obviously be against a wall, proper angle of lighting need NOT be considered.
The wall may be any color you wish, as long as the two figures stand out. Plain wall, brick wall, stone wall, this is up to you. You may make it as detailed as you wish, although my real thoughts were faceless and vague as to allow for more of a write-in about the character's detail. Again, a woman, not a child, and certainly not a man. We are going for gender equality here, she is and hopefully will be a testament to women who are going through hard times in their lives, both physically and emotionally.

After everything is said and done, this picture will be on wattpad as the cover of the book, so the title can be added later, by me. The title will no doubt be at the very top, so keep that in mind as you make the design. In the description, I will wish to source the artist responsible, so please give that information. Your work is just as important to my reader as to me, and I hope it will open more freelance job for you in the future. JPG ONLY PLEASE!!!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK AND MAY THE BEST WIN!

    In my time, tomorrow, this contest will be ending at noon. So come high noon we will be rounding up our winner. I am sure everyone can see who is top of the board, I was not lying when I said my judges had a hard time bringing it down to one, but they did. I look forward to the next contest.

      by the way, if for unforeseen reasons I might be late getting back to my computer, I am issuing an extension on time, but only to award the winner come noon tomorrow, not to accept further entries past that point. Yes, this mean, technically, I am ending a contest early, but I REFUSE to let it go by defualt vs awarding the proper person.

    We are three days from closing. I urge everyone to rap their entries and submit. On the final day, you will see who is top of the board and at closing one person will walk away with the prize. I promise an award will be made, my contests will not be won by default. Also, once this contest is over, another will be taking its place, so be on the look out, Search "book cover" for the next one.

    I would like to ask all contestants to try to get your entries in by the next three days, the judges are currently in preliminaries, but they need everyone's entries in to make a final judgment. If you are wondering what that means, it is like this, each judge is currently picking three entries, the next time they look at your art they will each pick ONE. Whoever gets the most attention, in the final picks, from the judges WINS IT ALL! As always, GOOD LUCK! And I would again like to thank each and every one of you for participating in my contest. You are all very talented, and believe me it has not been easy for the judges.

      if you already have 1 like, that is what you have, no one is getting multiple likes, the point is to let you know you ARE in the top running, at the moment

    ok, screw the previous idea for the next contest. I had a much better idea. it will be a 14 day contest. context clue is the title, " Identity Crisis". not related to "I am not a hero". Think hard back to any anime you have ever seen. then flip your idea. Transported to another world, one person is split into three persons, their childhood, pre-teen, and adult versions. they must work together if they ever wish to return as one, but they obviously do not share each other's personalities. That would be the next cover art contest. gender not chosen yet.
