I'll join. However I'll start the creation after 30th August [When I come back from vacation].
Faved for now, featured in "Graphics Animators", also have a few questions:

"Does the cover NEED to have a character/person?"
"Do we have to create the back cover and/or the front cover?"

2- front cover please :)

May I ask precisions about the theme?
I was wondering, can we make a "mature" outcome of a children book, by mature, I mean a "realistic" work not especially colorful and naive, what might come to mind when talking about childhood (at least, in my case when I think about it).

So is this all going to be from stock and existing books or can we submit original work?
Reply
:iconjussta:
jussta Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
it doesn't have to be based on stock, you can use your own sketches etc., but it has to be a cover of existing book

Ah, so it is like a person making a children's book based on a book in real life? ex: someone making a lord of the rings for kids or something? A picture book type thing of an existing book?

I'll definitely do this! Can I make a cover for a book that collects all books of a book series in one tome? I have one with all the Lord of the Rings books in one huge tome, but I though it'd be interesting to make something similar with the Harry Potter series.
