Contest Brief

I need a front and back design cover made for a coloring book from the files I uploaded. If you win this contest, I will most likely reach out for additional paid work directly. The coloring book is intended for adults.

The front Cover: I need to a design based on the Shih [login to view URL] file I uploaded to create a eye catching coloring book cover. There needs to be a title on it: Iron Paws Coloring Book and a subtitle smaller font Epic Dog Warriors with Inspirational Leadership Quotes. Also need to add the creator's name somewhere William Yau. All fonts in the cover and interior files should be embedded in the native program before publishing, fonts should not contain
any licensing restrictions. The front art shih tzu needs to be partially colored with shading and partially not like most coloring book covers see samples of covers I like that I uploaded - feel free to do some research on other covers for inspiration. The idea is the create a cute and eye catching cover. I will also need space to put a title on author name on it.

Back Cover: I also need a back cover that has some design taken from the I need space to add a text summary and a barcode on the back/The back text should be as followed:

The Iron Paw Coloring book comes with 23 pages filled with images of your favorite four legged friends: Dogs of all shapes and sizes, from chihuahas to dalmations, pugs to poodles, and more !

Inside you will find martial art inspired caricatures alongside leadership-inspired quotes, that are sure to waken your inner warrior. Lose yourself in a world where man's best friend's prepare for epic fantasy combat. From sword wielding shih tzu's to shiba inu's whipping numb chucks, this book is unique and whimsical. This is a must have for every dog lover! Make the world of Iron Paw your own!

    Hi there, Cool idea, i have previously worked illustration adult coloring books so i have a couple of questions before i proceed. A. the illustration you provided for the front and back cover, are these YOUR BOOK illustrations? Do you want us to CLEAN up the exsisting drawing and half color it in? OR is this someone elses drawing that you like, and you want us to RE DESIGN it in a similar style for the book? Are all the dogs in the book " warrior dogs"? so do you want us to keep a warrior theme base ? Its very Japanese Style, so do you want this to be predominant in the styling of the cover and back? Thanks
