Contest description: Win the contest to create the stunning cover art for a young adult adventure fantasy novel about a magical woodland realm from award-winning creators. In a distant future no longer ruled by the cruel hands of humans, animals have gained magical abilities and built their own complex societies. In this landscape devoid of humans, woodland magicians, sorcerers, warriors, clans and kingdoms abound. Sadly, all is not well in the woodland realm as the tyrannical sorceress crow queen, with her dreaded Storm-Cloud legion, terrorizes and subjugates her fellow creatures much as the bipeds (humans) once did. An unlikely band of animals must come together to save the ones they love from the crow queen’s power and bring peace back to the Woodland Realm. A fantasy adventure story of friendship, loss, bravery, humor and a mission of common good takes audiences on a journey through the cast of engaging and endearing animal characters and the important messages they learn along the way. Weaving together the best elements of young adult fantasy storytelling with a mission of encouraging audiences to re-examine their own role and power in the world.
What's your vision?
Cover art should include these main characters: Character 1 •C1 An ancient and magical crow, warm, caring, fierce. •He wears a green conical hat, yellow shirt and under a dark brown vest •He has an emerald encrusted eye patch over his left eye •He carries an oaken staff, the top of which is gnarled, twisted and contains a glowing emerald gem from which his power is sourced •His wings function like arms/hands, he can hold his staff, point and gesture with his wingtips Characters 2-4 •C2- A portly groundhog who stands on his hind legs •He wears a yellow bicocket cap, and a green waistcoat •He carries an old lute slung over his shoulder •He also carries a wood cylinder with a strap which contains a map of great importance. •On his shoulders are two wicker baskets in which his companion Sugar Gliders ride and store weapons •C3+4 Sugar Gliders are twin sister and also stand on rear paws •They are fierce, sarcastic, and always ready for a fight. •They wear gunlents on their forearms •They wear oak-leather breastplates •They wield a variety of weapons from crossbows to maces. Having them carry a cool medieval weapon or two would be amazing Character 5 •C5 is a grey Squirrel who is powerful and sleek, Captain of a formidable army •She wears a long cobalt cloak gilded with golden leaves •She wears a silver chainmail coat over the top as armor •She carries a quiver full of arrows, and a longbow in her paw •She is regal, and aware of it •She stands on her rear paws, tall and proud
Style: We like "The Secret Of Nimh" particularly, and other 80’s independent animations. Mood: Dark and serious environment with warm characters.
