What's your vision?
Overview: Earth, but not the Earth you know... Here the land, the nations, the factions, the leaders, and the history are different and yet sometimes the same... A new wave of imperialism, driven by greed and a lust for power has swept over the globe. Prejudice and a powerful need for resources have brought the world to the brink of war! Are you ready? Brief: We are looking for a card to be part of our upcoming card set. Leader cards in this game feature a military figure head. 1. LOOK: This leader should be physically strong, bald with no hair, Russian / Caucasian, half of his face should be scared like he was slightly burnt. He should have a confident and dangerous look overall, I can't stress this enough (no smiles). The images should be very black/dark heavy. 2. CLOTHING: This leader should be wearing clothing that looks rugged and tactical, nearly all black is preferred. 3. POSITION: We're interested in two different poses. First, a sitting position like on a thrown, facing down with his hand (fingers stretched out) over his head, but looking straight at the 'camera'. Second, standing and facing away but looking at the 'camera'. It could be interesting to have him holding a gun in one hand. 4. SCENE: This should be in a dimly lit cave-like scene. Imagine this leader is plotting his revenge in an old underground base. 5. SYMBOLS: No offensive symbols. 6. TIME PERIOD: The time period for the characters should be set in the very near future, roughly 5-10 years from now. We will include concept imagery that resembles the overall style we're looking for and examples of other cards in the set. Artist attribution is provided on each card, so please provide your name if you are selected to be the winner. Technical: Dimensions for the print are 63mm x 88mm, at least 800dpi, portrait layout, but we will need extra background for bleed and positioning. The lower 1/2 to 1/3 of the card may not be visible in the final printing due to on-card text. Plagiarism: All artwork must be original. 99Designs will catch those who have plagiarized as a part of their review processes for winners. This has happened in the past; please do not attempt this.

The gifted, yet withdrawn child was adopted by the wealthiest family in the Sovereignty of Trionvice, yet always felt out-of-place. Military school was the perfect incubation chamber for his iron will and brilliance. His climb didn’t stop until he reached the country’s highest office. More than any individual, Roman Volkov is responsible for the meteoric rise of his former country over the last decade. Three years ago, his world was rapidly upended. Details surrounding his birth came to light, exposing him as a child from the despised island nation of Ral Costria. Prejudice against Ral Costrians and questions regarding Volkov’s split allegiance forced him from his high office. His bitter rival, Adam Zoff, used the opportunity to take the Premiership. All signs point to foreign aid and involvement of New Kratia President Zeana. Together Zoff and Zeana framed Volkov for passing technology to Thato Lethabo. This former orphan and strategic prodigy was prepared for any contingency, and before he could be arrested, Roman stole a prototype mech and escaped to an underground base that “didn’t exist” according to public records. Along with specs on Trionvice’s valuable tech, Volkov fled with a vast fortune in family money, while leaving behind leaders in his foreign country who still hold loyalty to him. Roman Volkov doesn’t speak much—he is direct and to the point. In one of his longer quotes, he was heard to say that all forces being equal, he could make the supposed military genius Ryker Lockwood of the RKK look like a drooling idiot. Since his exile, the person in his crosshairs now is Adam Zoff. Volkov’s obsession is building forces to eventually take back control of his adoptive homeland. A man seeking revenge is told to dig two graves. Roman plans to fill the first one with the carcass of the usurper Zoff. Rather than occupying the second one himself, he has reserved it for Zeana, once he is able to prove it was her who helped betray him.
