ILLUSTRATION: WALL MURAL OF WINGS

  • Status: Open
  • Prize: $101
  • Entries Received: 11

Contest Brief

THE JOB:
I need an image produced to print a mural of wings, for taking pictures w people in front. See attached files for examples of several I found on the internet and liked. To get the idea right, imagine a person about 5 ft 2 in (157 cm) to 5 ft 11” (180 cm) standing in front (ie total height… without shoes/heels) and having their picture taken.

FORMAT:
Adobe Illustrator Vector Art, producing an .ai file.
The final output will be printed onto canvas. The front-facing image will be 54” wide x 87.5” tall. As the print will be gallery-wrapped around a 1.5” thick frame, the image you make will be designed to 60” x 93.5” (but again, the image facing the front will be 54” x 87.5”)

FOR MORE DETAIL ON DIMENSIONS & LAYOUT: See attached .ai file.

OVERALL LOOK/FEEL: it should have a sexy/sensual, but light-hearted / playful aesthetic.

NECESSARY ELEMENTS:
1) ***MUST FIT WITHIN THE SPECIFIED DIMENSIONS*** [SEE THE .ai FILE, OR THE .jpg FILE LABELED "DIMENSIONS AND LAYOUT"]
2) Wings
3) Halo
4) Devil’s tail [try to make the tail so that it will still show well with a person standing in front of it]
5) Blank space up top for projecting words onto (See attached .ai file)
6) A nice background

BONUS POINTS FOR INCORPORATING **ELEMENTS** OF TEXAS / AUSTIN (without overwhelming the primary aesthetic of the wings).

ADDITIONAL BONUS POINTS: see the “Angels Kissing” example… Would be great if there is something in the middle of the picture like this so the piece stands alone as well even when somebody is not in front of it.

OTHER POSSIBLE ELEMENTS / IDEAS:
1) Tropical flowers: large hibiscus on one side, large Calla Lilliy on the other; near the center
2) Tropical birds, parrots
3) Cowhide pattern
4) Cowboy hats
5) “Live Music Capitol” - those words themselves, and/or instruments, particularly acoustic guitar
6) Ray of light coming down from heavens
7) UT Longhorns Logo (University of Texas, Austin)([login to view URL])
8) An actual Longhorn ([login to view URL])
9) Bluebonnet flowers ([login to view URL])
10) State of Texas Capitol Building ([login to view URL])
11) Pennybacker Bridge ([login to view URL])
12) “Don’t Mess w Texas” ([login to view URL])
13) “Come and Take It” ([login to view URL])
14) Chicken Wings (the food, not the actual chicken’s wings!)
15) Willie Nelson, Matthew McConaughey (celebrities from Austin)
16) Salvador Dali like art ([login to view URL]) [this may be SUPER tough to do!]

    Separately, the other elements COULD be integrated into the wings and/or the background. I am leaving all that up to the artists' imagination to see what they can do... getting some balance of elegant-tasteful, but still making it unique and custom for Austin Texas. Thank you!!

    Hi Rozella! So, I'm leaving that a bit open. Ideally I would like something like angels kissing in the middle, if it can be done well (the one example of this I found is in the file labeled "Angels Kissing Wings.jpg"

    Your post describes large wings as a mural to photograph with people standing in front of them as in the attachments you shared. You also mention the idea of kissing angels, did you want the wings on them, or are you asking they, and the other elements be included in the feather design of the wings? Thanks.
