How The Worldsmith started their print or packaging design journey

Company name

The Worldsmith

Overview

I am a young writer, creator, thinker and devoted fan of the fantasy genre. I have now designed a line of Role Playing Game (RPG) products and created my first booklet from that line ready for release. As such I need cover art done for the initial product. For further information on me or my projects and concepts you can visit my website http://www.theworldsmith.com
I am seeking to develop working relationships with artists who are interested in the fantasy genre to help me with product line and project illustrations and am keen to see works that revolve around the themes of my world.
I am keen to provide feedback and commentary on submissions so please do not hesitate to contact me for clarification or to brainstorm ideas.
I look forward to hearing from you and good luck to all.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I am targeting fantasy Role Playing enthusiast who are looking to explore new game worlds and challenge themselves, aged between 20 – 45 years and will typically be male. My audience will also be realistic gritty fantasy lovers. As the product will be online based the audience will also have a knowledge and understanding of computers and e-products. The target audience is small in comparison to the total fantasy market pool and thus product competition is tight. Hence I am looking for a simple but eye catching piece as described below in the requirements section.

Requirements

I need an image that can be used for a variety of purposes, primarily the image will be used as the cover art for the product titled ‘The Bloodsoaked Lands’, I will also need a thumbnail image of it for use on websites and also a version that can be used as a banner add. There is an attached logo which must be present.
•The e-book pdf product will be in landscape so the main picture needs to fit for that orientation.
•For the thumbnail it will be portrait so the man part & focus of the image needs to be encapsulated in the portrait area.
•The banner again will be landscape and in the following dimensions, of 300 x 250 pixels.
I am looking for a cover that is simple in style and powerful in message, it needs to be clean and easily identifiable when shrunk to a thumbnail.
I am happy to field submissions that are not following my initial concept design as described below if your creative flair feels that something else would fit the criteria better.
•My initial concept for the cover was a golden serpent (symbol of the Empire involved in the booklet, the serpents depiction can be of your own design so feel free to be creative as to what you think suits) with the bottom half either covered in splattered blood that is spilt over the cover or it turning to dripping blood (signifying the conflict that has raged in the area).
•The background needs to be true to the style requirement.
