We have had a mix of experiences with other illustrators in the past so this contest is a trial to find and we would like to work with on our larger project as well as potential future projects. If all works out and you win this contest and are able to meet the requirements listed above, we will hire you for our larger project

We are going for a fun and stylish , Miami feel for all of our website art. To give you an idea of the look and feel we like, we have attached a pdf for styles we like ([login to view URL]) and a file for ones we DON’T like ([login to view URL]).

THE FIRST PROJECT- THE CONTEST ($200 USD)

- 1 full colored, layered, vector piece of artwork for one of our background scenes called Challenges and Giveaways - the art should consist of an island with mountains, palm trees, an erupting volcano and a smaller island with a palm tree and 1 castaway who is smiling, waving and holding a sign. He needs to be happy. He just got on the island so he does not have to bee skin and bones. He needs to look like he is having fun. If you choose you can have him in the hammock like in the sample PDF. This piece of artwork should be in the look and feel of the attached artwork [login to view URL] for reference. For the mountain the last 2 pages of this PDF are for reference to what the mountain scene should look like. Page 7 is for how the scene should look and page 8 is to show you that we want the scene to have depth.

- must submit sketches throughout the concepting phase before illustration is colored. We would rather let you know right from the start if you are on the right path.

- must keep communication lines open, and return messages in timely manner

- must be original artwork - not traces of other illustrations work, no children’s cartoons, or clip-art

    Remember our target audience is 25-45 so we need it feel more adult. We have attached another document called Miami_Feel.pdf

    Please look at the sample artwork. It does not have black outlines. We have attached another sample sketch so you know what we mean by Miami feel.
