We are looking for someone to create gritty realistic but fantastical illustrations for several scenes in this book. Environment and character need to be balanced. Character descriptions will be provided to the artist, as well as the opportunity to read the scene if desired.
We want an illustrator or psd file and full copyright, with artist attribution.
Here are 4 sample scenes:
1. Burning boat on lake scene: Foreground man treading water, mid ground: girl in raft, background, a middle aged woman strapped to the bow of a ship while the ship is aflame.
2. Underwater hotel: An old woman and young girl on a floating platform/bridge on a lake, looking down at a glowing underwater hotel.
3. Transformative Kiss: A girl and boy kiss, their hair and ears are beginning to shift into other people.
4. Peering through Bushes scene: Foreground: back of girl and boy's head as they peer across river to a dock and a haphazard stack of shipping containers that have been turned into a makeshift town.
Please provide examples of prior work that you believe illustrates your ability to perform this project. Note, this book is dark, so please ensure sample works show your ability to showcase dark/scary.
