Tribal Warriors Fighting at the Edge of the World - An Image Representing a Novel
Check out remsloan700's Illustration or graphics contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
I'm an independent fantasy author. I'm currently working on a series set in an analog of the ancient Middle East. Eventually, my books will cover a vast magical world and will span across multiple eras and cultures (typical medieval, Victorian wizards, elven samurai, and so on).
What's your vision?
I need a scene illustrated from the first chapter of my work in progress novel Under the Red Sky. The scene depicts two tribal warriors fighting each other. You can read the chapter here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SUdMCId75XuvDbZXHO_2GNcNtgNW5xyl3VvgIXqi3Mw/edit?usp=sharing I've added chapter 2 if you want a better idea of what the tribe should look like. Chapter 2 shows you their instruments made of bone and chitin, their "leader" (the Old Man), and their cruel, ritualistic murder of a woman tied to a bone stake. I'm going to use the image for promotions, particularly as a wallpaper on my Facebook page.
I hesitate to give too much direction because I'm really looking for your interpretation as a reader, but I'm looking for something in the spirit of Frank Frazetta, something you might see on an old Magic the Gathering card or the cover of an Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Module. I want the image to harken back to the 70s and 80s fantasy styles. I kind of see Mithash as a young, Middle Eastern Jason Momoa. I imagine the landscape like the Conan the Barbarian film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. If it isn't clear from the text, avoid putting any metallic instruments or accouterments in the image. This is tribal fantasy; there's no metallurgy. I'm also not a fan of double-bitted axes. They're really silly. Unfortunately, Frazetta always gives Conan a double-bitted axe, but disregard them in the images I've shared. They really bother me. Again, I really want my artist(s) to read the text and be inspired, so if you come up with something totally different that's true to the text, that might be super cool. Just do your best to represent the literature. This is my first contest on 99 Designs, so let me know if I've fallen short in any way.
