Résumé du concours

Clarification: It's fine to submit just one illustration to be judged. Once I have it narrowed it down to 3 people I will work with those people to determine the final price for all 11.
Any style can be submitted, I do not have a preference at this point.

I need 11 color illustrations for a story I want to tell. I have never worked with an illustrator before. The story is attached as a Word document.
If your work is chosen for publication, you will be given credit on the cover (if you like) and I will send you a book with a personalized thank you as a souvenir of your work (if you want it)
The book will be 5.5" wide by 8.5" tall. Each illustration gets a dedicated page.
The Rake will also be published online at [url removed, login to view]
If it proves successful, I will then order an animated video of the story, using the same characters as described below.

Characters
Little Peter/Son – in each illustration, based on boy in attached photo, curly blond hair, striped shirt
Big Peter/Dad – based on my Dad in the attached photo
Mom – like June Cleaver [url removed, login to view]:[url removed, login to view]
Sister – just learning to walk, always one foot off ground, about to fall over [url removed, login to view]
Teddy – 2 toned, one eye missing, just like in the photo
The rake – bow rake [url removed, login to view]:[url removed, login to view]
The wagon - rake is leaning on this [url removed, login to view]
If it helps, I can reenact the poses I have in mind and upload the photos.

    As this contest will close tomorrow, I first what to thank all of you for making the judging of the illustrations difficult. There is a lot of great work and talent here. This is my first contest, so forgive me if I have the etiquette wrong, but I want to let you all know that at this point sarbod and studiokimus are in my top 3. I will start a poll tomorrow to get help in deciding who to choose. If you have a 4 star rating or better, you are being considered.

    I've posted a rough pencil sketch for the shocked and hurt expression I'm looking for to go along with the text “I was shocked and felt badly hurt. I could smell my blood. My eyes welled up with water. I wasn't crying, lets be clear about that.”

    For the 9th illustration, I'm open to other scenes. What I've described may not work.

    Reminder: The book will be 5.5 inches wide by 8.5" tall. Each color illustration gets it's own page. However it is ok if there is white space on the top and the bottom. Don't feel that every scene must fill the page. There is nothing wrong with that, but it's not a requirement.

    For illustration 7: Dad crouched down talking son, one hand on shoulder, by the rake, wagon and teddy bear.
    Please base it closely on the expressions and poses (Dad crouched down, holding son close, son holding Teddy close) in the original photo. I'm imagining the Dad holding the rake in his right hand.

    If you are planning to submit a second drawing, I'd like to see the 6th or 7th scene with my Dad.
    The expressions on the face matter a lot to me. My Dad's expression will be a mixture of kindness, patience and bemusement.
    Little boy's expression is mixture of righteous anger, pleading to higher authority. I know that is unclear, but hopefully that helps a bit.
    Scene 3 is also one where the expression is very important.

    I agree with Chriskdougherty. 11 different illustrations will take around 4 days to finish them in proper quality.
    So i think it has more sense if every freelancer will upload just one illustration and then you will choose with whom to continue.

    And i have started to work on this task )

    Yes, Exactly what is required to enter the contest, 11 pages, in full detail is a lot to ask at a small chance among other artists. Would a cover and first page, "sample" be good enough to enter? surely whoever wins will collaborate with you to finish the job in a timely fashion.

    Cute and funny story. I too wanted to know what kind of style you would like and how many pictures you need to determine which artist is right for your book.

      Clarification: It's fine to submit just one illustration to be judged. Once I have it narrowed it down to 3 people I will work with those people to determine the final price for all 11.
      Any style can be submitted, I do not have a preference at this point.

      Any style will do. The approach of doing just one to show what you have in mind works for me.
