Illustrate Something for New Book

- Winner: Decafe
Here is a snippet of a section of a new kids book that is being self-published and I am looking for an illustrator who would like to help me bring the story to life through beautiful illustrations.
In this contest, I am only needing you to create a one page illustration that would sit alongside the text below. In this childrens book, this is essentially two pages. The characters are GingerBread People (the boy must have two buttons and the girl must have one button) and they are on the edge of a deep, dark forest on their way to a huge brown mountain.
There is no restrictions as to the artist tools in which you use, it just has to be something you will be proud of and are willing to share the world. It also has be able to be printed into a colourful children's book.
Once a winner has been chosen, they will then be engaged to complete 16 pages for me to illustrate the entire book. To be negotiated at the time of engagement.
From the book, choose a scene below and show me your stuff:
"They filled up their packs and headed out towards the great mountain which loomed in the distance. It looked like it was too far away to ever get there, but they were determined to try. They walked for days over the grassy hills. One day they came to the edge of a deep forest.
“It’s pretty dark in there, Benny,” said Rose.
“It sure is, but we’ll find our way,” said Benny.
They held hands and walked into the forest. When they felt scared they would whistle and that would make them feel better. After they had passed through the forest they began to hear a rumbling sound in the distance. They walked on and the sound got louder.
“It’s a river!” said Rose.
They came to a steep gorge and peered over the edge. White-water roared below them.
“I wouldn’t want to get dunked in there! It looks as white as milk,” exclaimed Benny.
Near them was a rickety old wooden bridge.
“I don’t think we can walk across that,” said Benny.
I can't wait to see your submissions.......
The production of this book is a dream of mine and I can't wait for you to be part of it.
