Kilpailun tehtävänanto

I need a cover picture for my upcoming Unicorn Kingdom(TM) card game. This picture is not to be a little kids cartoon. It should appeal to adults and teenagers as well as to children. The Unicorn in Unicorn Kingdom(TM) is the Unicorn King.

The most prominent part of the picture will be the Unicorn King. It would be better for him to look forward toward whatever direction his body is facing. He should not be turning his head to look to the side or behind. I would like him partly facing toward the viewer, but not directly toward the viewer so we can see the unicorn from both his front and side. The Unicorn King can be depicted standing in front of his kingdom asserting his rule with the Royal pony standing nearby or the two can be shown playing together. I am open to different types of poses which can depict that. He can have one hoof off the ground. If he has two hoofs off the ground be careful not to overdo it.

The Unicorn King can be decorated with royal ornaments. I do not think a crown would work for a unicorn. Think golden horn. Think something more like a necklace. Picture a big golden belt that is placed around the waist of a boxing champion, only something this is suitable as a necklace for a Unicorn King to be placed around his neck and show on his chest. Gold would be best. If you want you can try some sort of royal looking garment that can be place on his back for a person to sit on to ride, but I am not sure if I will like that.

The background imagery should include sky and land imagery. I would like to see some expansive scenery in the background as well as some up close scenery by the unicorn king.

Close up by the Unicorn King you can have a dove and a butterfly flying around him. The Royal Pony can have some sort of golden royal ornament as well, maybe even some type of low lying golden crown on her head possibly some sort of golden ornaments hanging off? Have the "Fairy Bear"(with fairy wings and fairy dust) reaching up to a tree to grab a shiny golden honey comb, an eagle in the sky by mountains,dragon other side of sky, a group of Archer elves in the forest near the castle, a Wizard walking out from a forest trail on the other side, a monk (google St. Francis of Assisi) with birds flying around him.

In the background expansive scenery I would like to see sky up above with a rainbow (with leprechaun?) and probably some clouds, forest leading back to mountains, and a castle surrounded by forest on one side. The castle should not be on the mountain. It should be in the forest just before or next to the mountain.

It would probably be best for the title "Unicorn Kingdom" to go at the top of the picture in the sky area (possibly surrounded in clouds and beaming sunrays from around it?). You could have some tree leaves around the border of the picture. I am not sure if there would be space for any tree in the close up scenery by the Unicorn King. that might block out the background scenery which I want.

You will come up with a design for the "Unicorn Kingdom" title which will go on the picture where you decide within those parameters. The title should be somewhere on the picture but it must stay 1/2 inch away from any edge (based on 5 inch by 7 inch size) or 1/4 inch away from any edge (based on 2.5 inch by 3.5 inch size). Any important part of the picture should also stay those same distances away from the edges.

Choose one of the 4 corners (probably lower left to save a small square spacefor a logo which will be provided to you if you are hired for the job. In the meantime fill that square space with non essential background imagery. So the dimensions will need to work for a card that is 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches high. That is considered "poker size". You could also think of it as 5 inches wide by 7 inches high. This picture should be good for uploading to display on a website as well as good for printing onto a playing card.

Thank you for your submissions.

    Hi ! I've a question. Won't it be too cluttered with so many elements in a single artwork. Can vi omit some elements to give it a balancing and convincing layout arrangement ?

      yes, you can do what you think you need to to make it the best picture possible. But if someone else has just as strong a piece as you and they have been able to include more of the elements I am looking for, then I would probably choose theirs.

      once I give 5 stars to an entry then that means I will have one I am willing to choose, and if there end up being multiple 5 stars then I would choose one from them to win. Look at my description and see what you can do. thanks :)

    I have attached sketches to show the general type of layout I am looking for as well as including multiple characters and creatures in the sketch that haven't been included in any entries yet. You do not have to follow my style (and certainly not my skill). My dimensions and proportions are not accurate (the Royal Pony should not be that much smaller than the Unicorn king). So this is just to give you the layout and elements I am looking for. The leprechaun is optional. I would like to see all the other characters and creatures. Thanks!

    I have expressed interest in the quality visual provided by photomanipulation but try to keep that balanced with the touch of artistic creation and also remember that althought the realism provided by photomanipulation makes for nice scenery Unicorn Kingdom is a fantasy place and the picture should reflect that to some extent. However, If you do choose illustration or digital painting, or other art forms over photomanipulation, it will have to look really good to win this contest.

    I would like to point out to everyone some benefits to participating in this contest even if you don't end up winning. I am using this photo as a part of a pitch to get funding to complete my Unicorn Kingdom game. If that funding comes through I will remember people who did good work trying to get me the best cover picture possible when I have jobs for various characters for the Unicorn Kingdom game.

    I'd like to point out that many of these entries are not original work. Most are either stolen illustrations or incorporate various imagery from Google images and other websites. I have actually come across some of them when I was looking for inspiration.

    so far I think JackVeda has the best layout of elements in the picture, klakornikola has the best unicorn pose, jackveda and dienel96 have best lettering styles for the title, chapter 19 has the best castle and trevor has the best royal unicorn ornament.

    for the title think medieval, celtic, gothic, or fantasy types of fonts. Or just make your own creative style for the title.

    I like the unicorn that is not turning his head too much and is partly facing toward the viewer, but not directly toward the viewer so we can see the unicorn from both his front and side. The unicorn king is not involved in a lot of action in this picture. He is standing in front of his kingdom asserting his rule. I am open to different types of poses for the unicorn king which can depict that.

    don't forget to check the dimensions I gave in the brief and distances from edges. Remember I am looking for both sky and land imagery. I am looking for the unicorn to be close up, but the scenery behind the unicorn to be expansive not close up. Any unicorn castle/home/kingdom type of structure should be on ground level with at least some trees around it, if not very surrounded by forest. When considering what pose to put the unicorn king in, just think noble, strong, majestic. I am really liking the ideas some of you are coming up with for royal ornaments.

      and even though I want to see expansive scenery in the background, don't make it too expansive, and you can include some close up scenery like around the edges or close by the Unicorn.

    sorry I do not have samples to provide. Try to follow closely every description I gave of what I am looking for and try to picture it from that. The one entry given so far is in the right direction but not quite what I am looking for.
