Konkurrencebeskrivelse

I have written a young adult's fantasy book and I need an illustration for the cover. The cover illustration will be of two teenage boys and a green European ( Not Eastern) style dragon. The boys should be dressed as simple present day teenagers i.e) t-shirt and jeans. One of the boys should have very dark brown hair, the other should have light brown hair. The boy with the dark brown hair should appear slightly older than the boy with the light brown hair.
The background can be that of a forest or clearing, just so long as it's 'natural' cool climate backdrop.

This contest has been set up to find a cover illustration for the first book, there will be four more books published, so there is further work potential for the contest winner. Contest winner will be credited in the published work.

At this point i am open to most styles, i have attached an example of a style that i feel would work particularly well for this cover.

    Hi Dreae,
    If I may ask, what's the dimension of the book? Is it portrait, landscape, or perhaps square sized? It would be helpful to know so that I can draw it to fit the book cover. Thanks in advance!
    Regards,
    LP

    What is the title of the story? Knowing this would help -I can incorporate the title into the illustration and work on a font that matches the style.
