Ringkasan Peraduan

Illustration required - black and white - pen and ink style - possibly medieval look - I have created an image cobbled together from scanned bits and pieces from the web, as a guide to what I need - except that I want it to have a unique look/feel - it is for a novel so needs to be print quality. The scene depicts the martyrdom of a holy man, but drawn after the event by someone who never saw the man and never saw the 'bird men' blamed throughout history for the murder. The prophet had stones tied to his ankles and was thrown down a well. I'm hoping for a style that can be continued for other illustrations to follow. Look should no be too sophisticated. I was thinking about the illustrations made by monks, who often got things wrong when drawing animals and whales when relying upon descriptions that were probably second and third hand at best. Hope that all makes sense. The image can be interpreted by the artist and slightly reconfigured. Just looking for something different, but the same :) Two bird men chucking a holy man down a well. The whole thing can be more stylised and of a piece, perhaps? Looking for flare and imaginative approach, which still looking primitive. The book is set in a dystopian future and have strong religious theme running through it.

    Guys, everyone - I'm very disappointed with the entries so far. Please don't enter anything until you have read and understood the brief. Ask me questions for more clarity, if you like. This contest is an opportunity for someone to illustrate three books and get credit for them. If I can't get what I need here, I'll go to the professionals - but I wanted to give someone struggling to break through first chance. Contest open until the end of the month - so still time for one of you to surprise and delight. The image I uploaded is a good guide to style and composition. Keep it coming!

    I got the idea for the heads of the bird men by googling plague doctor or plague mask - bird men who throw the martyr into the well should look like a combination of a human man and a bird. In the novel, they are actually more like Native Americans in appearance. Some head feathers might look good? Primitive and naive is not he same as rough or crude. So image would be carefully drawn, but would be inaccurate. Perspective might be not quite right. The image might be more stylised. The background I chose was one of destruction/chaos - hence the town on fire.

    You can get an idea of the style from the example I posted and from medieval art, done by monks. Don't simply run my image through Photoshop filters, or Inkscape. I am hoping for an original hand drawn (digital is ok too), image Stones were tied to the murdered man's ankles to ensure he drowned. Perhaps they were carved, or were they simply rough blocks? (you don't know, nor did the imaginary artist in the story). The artist has never seen a bird man - in the story, they are more like the Native Americans in appearance, so head feathers might be a nice feature - BUT - the artist has never seen one so comes up with this grotesque depiction. Google medieval art, particularly drawings in old manuscripts to get a better idea. Also, naive is a better description of the style. The artists of that time weren't fools, just ignorant and conforming to the artistic conventions of the day. This image is for a novel to be printed inside the book, as well as being used for KDP digital books.

    Hello. It's very interesting, but it looks like a "test task". You can find examples of my style if you look in my portfolio.
