I am in need of a graphic/illustration for a print project (not web), so must be high resolution.
The graphic/illustration is in color. Simple, subtle colors (as opposed to bright, brash colors) are preferred. The message is subtle.
It is for a chapter in my book that is humorous. It is a fun, whimsical story. (It pokes “fun” at people who judge interracial couples.)
The message is equality for all and support of mixed relationships. But it’s not a heavy tone in the story. It’s all very light.
It is a picture with a SIMPLE WHITE BACKGROUND (so, you do not need to design a background or a ground. So, do not make them be standing or walking on a ground or sidewalk. Just in the air.).
There are FOUR PEOPLE in this graphic:
1.) One gangster who is short and fat
2.) One gangster who is tall and thin.
3.) One young man (about 22) who is lightish dark skin, and wears modern clothes (like jeans) and wears a dark orange turban.
4.) One young woman (the young man’s girlfriend, also about 22). She’s Caucasian, brunette.
You do *not* need to draw the faces of these four people, because in the image their backs are facing us.
(See my amateur sketch attached.)
• Gangster #1 (the short, fat one) wears pinstriped suit and fedora hat, and is making a fist with his left hand. (As if he’s angry. Not aiming at anybody, though. Just at the ground. ) You can give him some short black hair or stubs of hair.
• Gangster #2 (the tall, thin one) also wears pinstriped suit and fedora hat. He is making a gun symbol with his fingers. (Not aiming at anybody though. Just at the ground.)
• The young man. He has light dark skin, brownish hair, and his turban is dark orange. He wears a plain shirt (long sleeved) and he has his right arm around his girlfriend. His left arm is raised, and he has his left hand fingers in a peace symbol. (PLEASE NOTE: In my “sketch” I have his left arm bent. But it should be raised casually in the air.)
• The young woman. She is Caucasian. Brown hair. Medium long length. Wears a dress. Leans her head against her boyfriend’s shoulder. Has her left arm around his waist, and holds a school backpack in her right hand. (They’re college students.)
If you decide to show parts of their faces, that’s fine too. Whatever looks best.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you’ll participate in this contest!
Let me know if you have questions.
