Konkurrence Instruktioner

I've written a book which is going to get published.

I would like to have an illustrator for it. I'm after one illustration of the robot from the book.

This project is to do one initial illustration and if it goes well you may get to do the rest of them.

About the Project

There are a lot of amazing women in tech, but it’s still not close to being balanced. To inspire young women to give it a go, I’ve written a book. The aim is to give them a positive role model.

The main character’s name is AZ and she enters the school’s robot building competition. She forms a team with 10 (female) and Li (non-gender) and together they build Ada, their robot. I have written the book without a specific location and I don’t physically describe the main characters.

I'm running a crowdfunding campaign in order to attract a publisher which will magnify the message.

The book is aimed at girls aged 10-14.

I'm open to the style of the drawing.

Illustration Brief:

I'd like you to draw the robot Ada from the book.

Here is a description;

"
They had also worked, under Li’s direction, to make Ada look better. Ada was one hundred and sixty five centimeters tall, a lot shorter than Ukko. Humanoid shape. Arms and legs, lean and curved. Shoulders smaller than a human, with arms starting out at a slight angle giving the impression of readiness. Strong legs, with knees that allowed for full 360-degree range of motion.

Ada’s colour was impressive, 10 had even complimented Li. It was a metallic blur of purple, blue and red. You couldn’t tell where one colour stopped and another began. On Ada’s chest was the team’s new logo. It was a hex nut with a heart inside. Blue for the sky and green for nature.


Causing the biggest sensation by far was Ada’s waist. Dalk was the only one who didn’t seem impressed, though I think I saw the tiniest movement on his cheek. Ada’s middle section was a steel grey ball. It allowed Ada’s torso and legs to rotate freely. It was a true innovation and a big risk for the team."

    Do you have the hex nut logo or are we supposed to design it? Also "Blue for the sky and green for nature" - I didn't get this part.

      I like the sketch. Thanks. Is there any way to make it look more in action than profile? And any thought on colour as it looks stark that way. I say that without any ability to draw...

      Thank you. Like I mentioned in my entry, I will change the pose and add colors. I just wanted to make sure that I am heading in the right direction with the character design.

    I have a very rough drawing of the hex nut. it's basically a green heart in a blue hexagon. The two colours are for sky blue and nature green.
