Contest Brief

The images are meant for children in the ages 2-7 years of age. Should be fun, light hearted, engaging, spring/summer time. No Disney.

I want the end result to be delivered in three separate layered psd-files. Three different drawings in the size of horizontal landscape, A3. In style I am leaning towards a mix of different painterly/drawing styles although I´m interested and open for different approaches. The images will be used as background in a picture book.

Each landscape/scene is divided in at least three strata for animals/objects under water, on top of water/lake, on land/in forest/air.
Layers ex.; houses, mountains, water, water ground, harbour, vegetation, objects. The viewer should be able to see what goes on under water.
Don´t get to fixated on the layering, just keep the proximate strata separated from each other. [login to view URL] buildings in one layer. Mountains in one, vegetation in one, water in one.
See these example links after water scenes as to understand the "strata division": [login to view URL]  [login to view URL]

Vegetation; must have in at least one scene lily of the valley and blueberries, can have apples, potato. Should have pine wood, European larch, clover flower.

Please see my pdf. Sketches are ruff do not lock yourself to them, proportions can be played with, get the mountains as good as you can (scene 1, scene 2 and scene 3). Thanks so much.

Scene 1: first in pdf mounain line. View towards settlement. Should be divided so that you see underwater, settlement area, mountain side, sky. Should have small fish in shoals in water, lake grass.

Scene 2: second in pdf. island. Divided in underwater, mountain side, sky. Should have crown deer sticking out behind tree in forest, and a green and white 2cv should be seen on the bottom in the water. One white house/one black/ two wood coloured houses.
