UPDATE 7-1: I've uploaded an image of a "Piebald" sheep for reference of the colors Sammy(the sheep as well as his wolf form) should be. Thank you again!

I'm currently working on a children's book. I'm estimating the book to be between 25-35 pages. Guessing at around 30 illustrations. What I'm looking for in this contest is the person I would hire to complete these illustrations. I will be attaching the "cover art" for an idea of the style of work I would like to see, as well as a few "descriptions" of what I picture the scene to look like. Bright contrasting colors will be important; but as some of the linked pictures will allude to, the images do not need to be full page, wall to wall detail and color. Most of the illustrations would be 1 per page with space for the actual text, in some cases we may go for a full 2 page coverage with room for writing. The medium does not have to be anything specific like watercolor or ink only. Heck if you want to design 3d models to pose and re-arrange as needed from scene to scene. Whatever is your niche is. In the end if I like an art style enough to change my mind, I'll dump the cover and start fresh. I'm asking for a finished work of (1) of the described scenes, that is all.

I have a modest budget for the follow up work, but if you are willing, as I will be paying all up front costs for publishing, ISBN, distribution, there will be a % of sales/royalties that we could work out along the way.

      What do you mean "runner-ups"? Are you considering hiring multiple people for the job?

      I'm considering keeping options open if for some reason the direction changes, and the feel of the book ends up out of sync. There were 3 that I was really torn between in the end. I have two other books I have in progress as well, slightly different age groups, and I want those I was interested in to know their work was appreciated, and not a waste of effort :)

    Already working on it. Btw, what mood do you have in mind with this book? Judging from the scenes you described in attached file i would personally go towards emotions of light sorrow and unease in illustrations. With light pastel colors and semi-realistic depiction of characters. What do you think?

      I am open to all interpretations that come through. I am honestly at a loss for art direction. I would like to find a balance between realism and cute. But going full "cartoon" wouldn't be out of the question as I've seen a couple that went that direction, and was very pleased.

      Okay, this is nice to hear. I feel like a balance between realism and cute is exactly my thing.

    Totally what I'm looking for my life. A child's book about a sheep and wolves *sigh*. I'm on it!

      If there was ever a post where I wish there was a font to differentiate sarcasm from legitimacy, this would be the one. :)

      Oh, sorry! I was serious about it, really loved your story. And I'd love to be the illustrator of a child's book with wolves, owls and sheep on it. I'm making the drawing with great care.

    Hi ! This contest is 25$ for one illustration? does that mean you are expecting to pay 25 for each illustration for the entire book? I`d love to participate, cheers!

      It would honestly depend on the illustration. For instance if one illustration were to entirely fill two pages, edge to edge, it would be a different amount of work than an illustration of a single character without background to fill a small blank spot in the corner. I know that doesn't help a whole lot at the moment, but the layout of the book and the complexity of the illustrations will probably help define each other, that's why currently I'm trying to find a style.
