Entertainment & The Arts
**Contest blind** **visual references and brief added to attachments** I am self-publishing a children’s book (6-11yr old). The theme is history of battles, with a focus on animals used within them (e.g. elephants used by Hannibal, Animals used in the colosseum) etc. I need an initial concept battle scene to fit onto a landscape A4 page.
What's your vision?
I am self-publishing a children’s book (6-11yr old). - Style guide is attached I need an illustration of a warfare scene (e.g. Vikings, Romans, Soldiers). These will be in a cartoonish, isometric design (Bangzhen Du is a style reference). Images will be “busy” with hidden content, and cut through/exploded views of buildings to see internal scenes. Focus will be on animals within the images, which need to have personality and character. Images can be edgy, e.g. showing violence in a comic way, and have film references. *Contest now blind* - The winning designer will be contacted for additional work with the same style, with 16 additional battle scenes required (more info on completion) Style references are: Bangzhen Du artwork JGS Boutain Artwork (e.g. “military city”, “POW Camp”, Jungle" Where’s Wally

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their illustration or graphics.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
