This will be the cover of a children’s illustrated book. The dog is lost and wandering, so it could look scared. Or, it could look curious and energetic. The illustration MUST be original, hand-drawn, and it has to include the dog pictured below. I will also be attaching some illustrations that are similar to the style we are interested in. The winner of this competition could also be eligible to work with us on the entire book if we like the design enough.
Here are some details about the dog that must be shown:
-Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mix
-Notice the two heart-shaped patches on her chest. Those must be drawn.
-She has a cute, little underbite. We want to see that.
For the background, try a nature scene, outdoors. It could be on a road walking, sniffing, barking, or doing whatever dogs do. We want it do be colorful and attractive. Suggestions are putting rusty windmills, antique cars, trees, forest, desert, sunlight.
We encourage you to submit a couple versions of your design, different backgrounds or fonts or colors. Try a version with the dog sitting, standing, laying down, sideways, front, etc. The more we have to look at, the more likely we are to find something we like or are inspired by and more likely we are to pick your design.
