Obviously, I prefer someone with a bit of experience/talent.
I believe there are quite a few members on this forum who do a great deal of both CG drawing and hand-drawing.
I would be happy with either one if the effect is what I want. I've seen some vector-graphic images done that were wonderful.
I am looking for something VERY "simple" in appearance.
My initial idea was very simple, either black and white, or very vivid colours.
A field of wheat/grain, and a single farmer, only his back and a wide-brimmed hat visible (he's leaning over in the field)
So "fluffy" growing stuff, with a simple, almost "suggested" human figure.
I'd like the entire "form" of the image to have a bit of a flying saucer shape. (a flat bottom, pointy edges, the middle top-side thicker where the farmer is)
This is going on cover pages of a publication (self-published... making like $0).
It will be used just above my name on the cover pages.
A pencil drawing would do if the lines are clear. An ink drawing would be better for resolution.
And a computer generated vector drawing would be best as that would be easily resizable without losing quality.
I would include, as well, a mention of the artist's name in the inside cover.
here's an image that contains THREE of the elements I require, they just need to be placed together, and in a drawing rather than a photo...
The hat is great, though I'd rather it did not look TOO Asian, and the farmer bent over is perfect... I need the farmer's back to be white, barely showing above the crop. So just his back, and hat, poking out of the crop.
Again, the lines cannot be too fine, either, since this is going to a non-photo printer. It prints very good quality, but it's not designed for photos.
