Quintessential Concept Art--The Book Cover Competition
Please read all of the instructions before posting pictures.
I don't know about you, but one of my first ever art lessons was designing a book cover and it seems to me that that has been the staple of the curriculum for quite a while, so I challenge all of you to do the same again (or for the first time) now that you have honed your skills over the years.
The challenge is simple. It is open to everyone and the the finished designs will be posted for judging shortly after the deadline. The deadline is to have a finished piece posted here by 12:00p.m. GMT June 15th.
The design can be either just the cover, or the back cover-spine-front cover layout and can be for any dimentions.
The front cover must include the title and the author. The author can either be your screen-name, or the sample name Brian O' Reilly (ME!).
The back cover, if you chose to do one, should include any necessary space for a blurb or quotes, but these need not be written, just implied.
The title of this month's book is: "Desiderata" which means "desired things".
To give you an idea of where to go with it:
[Main Character] has just been reborn (though he doesn't know it). He wakes up in a desert, bursting with energy. Plants grow wherever he steps. He is but a shell, filled with light. The book shal be about discovering power and deciding what to do with it. How to live one's life.
I hope that leaves it open enough to get your creative juices flowing.
To keep it interesting, please post WIP pics too, but clearly identify once a piece is finished. One final entry per member.
Please post if you are going to do a cover, even before you have started your WIP.
Good luck to all. And Enjoy!
